John Alden 1938 Quill 32′ motor cruiser / day boat

Just look at this beauty of a boat. You’ll be the envy of every boater in an Alden Quill. Designed when boats where built to be used not just marketed as the biggest caravan available for a given length. This is a 32′ boat with two berths, a small galley and a head, is powered by two modest 96 hp diesel engines and will go 22 knots. Yes it’s another semi-planning hull but you have to admire this type for it’s fuel efficiency and sea kindly attributes. It’s not just the beautiful classic looks that make this boat attractive to a modern boater it’s the large cockpit and open wheelhouse. Two things that you want when you’re entertaining friends or fishing. Nobody likes being shut away at the helm missing out on all the fun and passengers can duck in out of the weather without having to risk mal de mer by being enclosed below.
