Email This Page to a FriendPreview: Aboard a Legendary Boat, Malabar II
November 19, 2011
Of all John Alden’s legendary Malabar designs, MALABAR II is our favorite. We caught up with her owners and took a sail aboard this iconic 42’ gaff schooner. This is the first of our tours of legendary boats, and Malabar II was at the top of our list.
MALABAR II was designed by John G. Alden and built originally in 1922 by Charles A. Morse & Son in Thomaston, Maine. She’s 41’6” on deck with a beam of 11’3” and a draft of a little over six feet.
