About this Alden Ketch

While DELFINO has for many years been described as an Alden, it has to be acknowledged that no build number has been tracked down to identify her thus absolutely. That she was built by an Italian yard on the eve of WW II may reasonably explain the lack of it. In assessing the likelihood however it has to be said that this yacht exhibits so many of the characteristics of John Alden’s designs, well known for their beauty as well as their ability offshore that we are inclined to describe her as an Alden with this caveat. Fact is there is a shortage of well restored yachts of this size that can be cruised extensively as well as exhibited and raced - and DELFINO fits the bill. The current ownership are lucky enough to own a fleet of classic vessels so with their knowledge and passion DELFINO has been optimised for Med cruising, with generator, air conditioning as well as new Hood sails. Thus wonderfully set up she is ready.

In assessing the likelihood however it has to be said that this yacht exhibits so many of the characteristics of John Alden’s designs, well known for their beauty as well as their ability offshore that we are inclined to describe her as an Alden with this caveat. Fact is there is a shortage of well restored yachts of this size that can be cruised extensively as well as exhibited and raced - and DELFINO fits the bill. The current ownership are lucky enough to own a fleet of classic vessels so with their knowledge and passion DELFINO has been optimised for Med cruising, with generator, air conditioning as well as new Hood sails. Thus wonderfully set up she is ready. History DELFINO was originally commissioned by Cesare Pagnini, the last Governor of Trieste. After WWII she served as a gentleman’s yacht to the British Major General Sir Terence Airey, Commander and Military Governor of the Anglo American Zone. Then she was given to the Yachting Club “Circolo Adriaco” of Trieste where she served as the Club’s sail boat in the 1950s and 60s. She was then somewhat neglected for the next 3 decades until the de Vargas family rescued and restored her before she passed to the current owner. The full restoration of DELFINO took place over some years up to 2006 by the Cantiere Alto Adriatico The current owner has further refined her usability and improved her specification sympathetically to her origins.   Construction - Carvel larch planking on oak frames - New teak deck - Original mahogany doghouse and cabin superstructure with skylights - New brass rimmed portholes and new hatches Accommodation and Domestic Equipment Accommodation is for five; two in the saloon, two in a forward guest cabin, and a quarter berth.
