FAMOUS JOHN G. ALDEN SCHOONER
MALABAR X

 

Presented is a magnificently made model of one of the most famous designs in American yachting history resulting in an exceptionally realistic model that is outstanding in all respects. It is fittingly called "MUSEUM QUALITY". The original Malabar design was conceived by John G. Alden of Boston, MA. in 1921. Malabar X was the tenth in a series of schooners designed by Alden bewteen 1921 and 1930 all named Malabar.
 
The original Malabar X was built by Hodgdon Brothers in East Boothbay, Maine in 1930 and is still in service today. In 1932 she set the record for the Newport to Bermuda Race and is still racing strong winning the 2003 Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race.  
 
Models of this quality are sold by a nautical gallery in Boston where they are priced at over $3000.00, and in March of this year, Chuck DeLuca's Marine Antiques sold one at auction for $2950.00.  This model is from the same source. It is exact in its design and equal in the quality of the workmanship. All the customary gear and equipment is in place and carefully replicated.
 
By comparison to other models this is LARGE at 36" overall and 38 3/4" high. (base to the top of mast)  
 
                           Detailed foredeck
                    Teak laid deck detail
                        Aft cockpit
                             Builder's details

This two masted full rigged model has the original's dark green hull with white boot top and maroon bottom paint.
 

It features a gaff rig main and foremast, three jibs, a foresail, mainsail, upper topsails on both masts and a large fisherman staysail between the main and foremast. The running rigging, including lazy jacks, and carefully stitched sails with reef points, is all authentic and makes this an incomparable model. The deckhouse, and wood decks and cap rail are varnished.

BRIEF HISTORY OF MALABAR'S: John Alden built a series of schooners, all named “MALABAR.” The first MALABAR was built in 1921. He then built one a year, ending in 1930 with MALABAR X. These were the quintessential Alden yachts, and when they won races, Alden’s fame grew.
 
Each of his boats to the basic design were larger than the one before. The original Malabar I was 41'3" long on deck and weighed 29,000 pounds while Malabar X measures 58'3" and weighs 61,000 pounds.
 
In 1923, not only did his MALABAR IV win the Bermuda Race, his Malabar's took three of the first five places. In 1932, MALABAR X set the record with three other of John's schooners right behind. This time period was his “golden age” – when his designs dominated ocean racing and when Alden listed more boats in Lloyd’s than any other designer.
 
The MALABAR name would be used again by him, for ketch-rigged cruisers (up to MALABAR XIII) and for an early production boat, the sloop-rigged MALABAR JUNIOR (of which some 65 were built).
