Born in 1884, in America, the naval architect John Alden, is regarded by many as the greatest boat designer who ever lived.
His yachts are characterised by gentle curves and streamlined underwater profiles to give an overall impression of extreme elegance.
Alden founded The Alden design Office in 1909 and by the 1930’s, the company enjoyed world renown, and still continues to this day.
Nereida was built from plans bought from the Boston City Museum. She is a fine example of an Alden design, and is featured in the Alden Company Design Data Base.
