    Previously circumnavigated the world.
    Currently ashore in Aktio, Preveza,
    Alleda was launched in 1966 at Brightlingsea, and is ready for the water as ever. In fact you could move aboard tomorrow. This well equipped stable, easily managed yacht with all sail control from the cockpit, plenty of lounging space, economical and reliable engine etc is quite complete and ready for someone to enjoy their boating in the Med.

    Alleda is an Iroquois Mk1 catamaran . She was designed by Rod McAlpine Downie, built by Reg White (Sailcraft Ltd., Brightlingsea) in 1966, sailed around the world (1991 to 1993) and converted to junk rig in 2002/3.

    Alleda is now in Greece but work began in the UK in 2002. The masts are fibreglass flagpoles of 7.5 metre length. They are set in tabernacles because previous owner wanted to go back down the French canals to the Mediterranean (and did in 2004) and liked to be self sufficient. He also suffered from vertigo so maintenance is done with the mast horizontal rather than from the boson’s chair. If you can do without tabernacles then a junk conversion will be much simpler, less costly and certainly prettier. The yards are 3” diameter and the battens 1” diameter aluminium tubing, each batten having 3 Acetyl hinges/cones at 30, 40 & 50% of chord. In retrospect, the hinges/cones are overdone, 2 per batten would be fine. Alledas’ two sails give a total of about 390 sq ft .

    All sail control is from the cockpit, which is perfect for the single-hander. Alleda is so effortless that I usually anchor (up or down) under sail these days. As we approach an anchoring spot it’s great fun to drop the windward sail and ease our way in under the leeward sail reefing a panel or two as you close the spot. If we had a permanent berth at Preveza I expect we would be tempted to sail in and out much of the time. The Med is full of Bermudan rigged anonymous boats & this isn’t one!
