Overview

Own a sailing legend! This classic John Alden Gaff-Rigged Schooner was built in 1925 and encapsulated in fiberglass in the 1990s. Beautiful, elegant, and perfect for cruising or charter.

Venus was built in 1925 in Freeport, Maine. She is design number 253-B by John Alden, built by T.H. Soule. She was a fresh water sailor in the Michigan Lakes and made her way down to New Orleans then Pensacola, FL in the 1950’s. Her current owners purchased her in 2012 and have been living aboard and restoring her. 

She is completely wood but has been C-Flexed (encapsulated in fiberglass) in the 90s. The current owners sailed her from Pensacola to FL Keys and then up to Saint Augustine, FL. She is currently hauled out at a local DIY boatyard. She is a solid and sturdy boat and is eager to be loved!

"Venus" would make a great charter boat for romantic sunset cruises OR a great cruiser for someone with a love of classic schooners. She is pedigreed and full of character, with absolutely stunning lines.

Accommodations

Everything about this boat takes you back to the glory days of sailing, and the interior is no exception. From the bronze portholes to the fold-down sink in the head, she is a true classic.

A comfortable stateroom lies to port, with storage to starboard upon entering through the companionway. The salon opens up mid-ships and the galley sits forward of the salon. 

The interior is multi-use and has the look and feel of a classic, The forward cabin is currently being used for storage, but could be easily repurposed. 

A family of three has been living aboard her comfortably for the last four years, and there are so many things you could with with this versatile interior!  She could easily be set up for charter, and can sleep 6 or more very comfortably.
