Priced to sell, This Fuji Ketch 45 MKII, Designed by John G. Alden also known as the Alden 744. Only 11 of this design were built. The solid fiberglass hull is the same as the very popular Fuji 45, but a different deck and cabin house, with an aft cockpit, but still has two staterooms. The superb Japanese craftsmanship with heavily laid up fiberglass, sturdy laminated coach-roof beams and hand-crafted joiner work. This blue-water cruiser is exceptionally strong, offering offshore security rarely found in boats built today. Exceptional balance off the wind and a sea-kindly motion, the Fuji 45 can be easily handled by a couple, but she’s big enough for a family to comfortably live aboard for extended periods.

There is an aft master stateroom with en-suite head, comfy main salon and another stateroom forward with plenty of room for two adults with separate access to the forward head, large tank capacity and lots of storage throughout.

Well maintained with majority of systems upgraded in the past 10 years. Now she is ready for you to take on your own adventure. Why not start it in La Paz, the gateway to the Sea of Cortez, where there are lots of close anchorages with white sand beaches, turquoise clear water and amazing sea life.
