Mithrandir

A TIMELESS BEAUTY
It is not very often that a yacht like MITHRANDIR appears on the market. Built by the renowned Alden Yard in Portsmouth, RI, she represents the best of the best in construction quality, finish, and safety. The current owners have cruised her for over 100,000 miles, spending much of their time in the South Pacific, but also voyaging into Alaska and throughout British Colombia. Continually upgraded along the way and expertly maintained, MITHRANDIR that will take you wherever in the world you would like to go.

MITHRANDIR represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sail away and go places. At this price point, there is simply nothing like her on the market today.

WHY SHOULD YOU BUY THIS BOAT?

LONG RANGE CRUISING UPGRADES
When you put over 100,000 NM on a sailboatover over 15 years, you tend to do upgrades to reflect your needs and pride of ownership. Either for operational or for creature comforts, MITHRANDIR has done all the hard work for you. Here are a few…
-Hard dodger to protect the cockpit in 30 knot winds (2012)
-Sea Recovery 35 Gal/hr reverse osmosis water maker
-Vaccumm bagged epoxy Super Yacht teak decks, i.e. no screws (2008)
-Dedicated navigation system comprising of Furuno Navnet, B&G Hercules, Jeppesen CMap (Puget Sound to Alaska), Max Sea Time navigation software, among others
-Over 1200 Amp/hr AGM batteries (2012), 300 A/hr engine battery, 9kw generator, 2500W inverter
-Amstel spectra lifelines (2014). When boat was registered in New Zealand
-Webasco Diesel hot air heating system with multi-zones
-Removeable Lexan storm shutters for port and starboard main salon windows (hurricane weather)
-Grunert refrigeration system (engine and separate AC driven)
-Vacuum bagged epoxy bonded teak decking (no screws or bungs to worry about)
-Sirius radio and Ipod interface. Because you simply need Jimmy Buffet
-Hood Yacht System with electric mainsail furling, Navtec rod rigging, Harken furling

KEEL CENTREBOARD…THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
She draws 5’-10” with centerboard up and has a maximum draft of 10’-7’ with board down. Her centerboard’s cross section is foil shaped for enhanced upwind performance.

With the board up, Mithrandir sports an elongated shoal draft keel, which would please most offshore cruisers. Having the ability to track very well upwind while displaying a confident level of seaworthiness. Further, you have the unique ability to anchor in shallow bays and coves that would make most 40-footers envious, especially when the tides run out. A definite plus for anyone wanting to explore the cruising grounds of Desolation Sound, or French Polynesia for that matter.
Once offshore, the dropped centreboard increases the draft to 10’-7”, decreasing the amount of rolling and white-knuckle sailing when the wind blows, or to simply tame an otherwise bouncing spinnaker. Her centerboard’s cross-section is not simply a metal plate, but an actual shaped foil, enhancing upwind performance much like a traditional fin keel. Also, if you are suffering from excessive weather helm and sail control is not solving the problem, just bring up the centerboard a little.

NOT FOR SALE IN CANADIAN WATERS
Can you think of a better boat to cruise down to the U.S. to finalize the deal? Besides, it will give the new owner time to become more familiar with the boat, from the helm to the espresso maker.

ACCOMMODATIONS AND LAYOUT

Sail locker with separate chain locker forward accessed from the large forward deck hatch and separated from the living accommodations by a watertight bulkhead. Aft of the bulkhead is a large head shared by the two guest cabins using separate entrances. Aft of hanging lockers the identical port and starboard guest cabins feature upper and lower berths, all with lee cloths. The upper bunks fold down to create a comfortable sitting area. Double doors in the fore aft bulkhead separating the cabins can be secured open or closed as needed, providing adaptable accommodation options. For example with a couple as guests onboard the opened doors provide a large stateroom again with several sleeping options.

Immediately aft of the forward cabins is the main salon, featuring a U-shaped dining settee to starboard. Ample bookshelves above the starboard settee reach outboard to the teak-lined hull below the main salon windows. To port, another settee features wine glass storage behind custom-designed stained glass cabinet doors, above and outboard. Directly aft of the wine glass cabinet is a custom-designed roll-top desk. Next aft, a second stained glass-fronted cabinet contains the entertainment system and additional storage. Both settees slide out to form double berths. The generous dining table, accessible by both settees, has lots of storage in the pedestal base. Leaves fold up when not in use. A key feature of the Alden design provides an eye-level view of the outdoors in either the galley or the main salon.

The U-shaped galley is aft of the starboard settee. It features a three-burner Force 10 stove with oven and broiler, a Grunert holding plate refrigerator and separate freezer system, a microwave oven and trash compactor. The double stainless steel sinks, with installed soap dispensers, have a foot pump with a separate freshwater Aqua Pure charcoal filter to back up the pressure water system. A second foot pump provides seawater to the galley or pumps out the fridge by turning the fitted Y-valve. The Sea Recovery 35 gal/hour reverse-osmosis watermaker control panel is located on the aft bulkhead above the fridge/freezer compartments (1). Backsplashes are white laminate and galley counters are granite-look Corian. The galley is fully outfitted for gourmet cooking.

To port and aft of the main salon is the forward-facing navigation station with chart table, seat, storage and instrument displays. The navigation station is fully-outfitted for offshore passages and/or coastal cruising. (1)

Aft of the nav station, a passageway leads past the main engine access panel, a wet locker and an en-suite head to the full-width owner’s stateroom. The centerline queen berth has drawers under. Port and starboard of the berth are cedar-lined clothes and hanging lockers. A washer /dryer is located on the starboard side of the forward bulkhead in the aft cabin. Finish throughout is satin-varnished teak, with satin-finished teak and holly cabin sole. (1)

DECK, HULL AND CUSTOM MODIFICATION

Hull color is Alden Blue with a recessed gold cove stripe. Insignia White boot stripe. Deckhouse is Insignia White. Nonskid surface is Seattle Grey. All surfaces including the hull and spars were painted in 1998 by Alden when the current owner purchased the vessel, and again in 2005 by Franklins Boatyard, Waikawa, New Zealand. The 2005 refit by Franklins included new ceilings and belowdecks top-to-bottom varnish. New teak decks were installed by Franklins Boatyard in 2008. The vacuum-bagged epoxy bonded decks are tight-grained teak from Super Yacht teak. Teak cockpit seats and floor were also replaced
In 2012, a custom-designed hard dodger was added by Franklins Boatyard. The extensive refit project is a testimony to the design and boat building skill of the Franklin team and their ability to transfer into reality what the owners learned in 15 years and 100,000 miles. Functional design improvements prioritizing offshore safety included modifications to running rigging control systems, allowing control from the cockpit under all conditions.

SAILS AND RIGGING

A new Hood Yacht System mast with electric mainsail furling was installed in 1998 when the current owner purchased the boat. All standing and running rigging was replaced at the Alden yard in Portsmouth RI. Navtec rod rigging was used exclusively. A Harken headsail furling system and new Doyle sails included a No. 2 and No. 3 genoa, a 1.5 ounce spinnaker and a furling mainsail. In 2001 a North G2 Spinnaker from North Sails Vancouver was added. In 2003 a Doyle spectra mainsail and 110% spectra genoa were added in Auckland. In 2009 a permanent staysail stay with a Harken MKIV Furler and North Sails Super yacht laminate staysail was installed by Waikawa Rigging and North Sails in New Zealand. Waikawa Rigging performed regular rigging inspections and completed all recommended repairs from 2008 to 2013. In 2014 the Doyle 110% genoa, after damage on the Samoa Fanning Island passage, was replaced in Hawaii with a 115% North Sails Super Yacht carbon fiber laminate.
