CADENCE, one of only three Alden Yachts 43s in existence, is an exceptional example of American craftsmanship. Since launch, she has been lovingly cared for and continuously updated by three successive experienced yacht owners; the first, Rick Chapin, was an Alden Yachts stakeholder. Yard-maintained to the highest standards, this classic and immaculate example of American boatbuilding history turns heads everywhere she goes and commands respect for her aesthetic, performance and legendary pedigree. Her cherry interior with Ultrasuede upholstery and Corian countertops surrounds owner and guests with light and luxury. CADENCE has been well-cared-for since launch by two Hinckley yards in Maryland and one in Portsmouth, RI, where she was built. Complete maintenance records are available from the current owner.
CADENCE is being actively maintained and upgraded by Hinckley Yacht Services.
