Sceptre'd Isle - Alden 62'

Use buttons below to view more information about Sceptre'd Isle - Alden 62'.

The original owner of Sceptre'd Isle wanted a traditional yacht with very good sailing characteristics. He chose Goetz to build a light, strong hull and deck (seamless vacuum bagged bi axial E-glass in epoxy resin over Baltec Contourkore core). The interior is constructed with Nomex panels covered in a beautifully executed cherry veneer and traditional teak and holly soles. The overhead is ultra-suede panels replaced new in 2004. Derecktor assembled the package and used their years of experience to install all the equipment, and execute the interior and rig. GMT built the carbon rig and the carbon rudder. Sceptre'd Isle has been maintained and upgraded as necessary. Her crew keep her in proper yacht condition at all times. She has had a light racing schedule. In 2002 she won her class in the Block Island RAce, and was third in class in the Newport to Bermuda Race. Sceptre'd Isle is a beautiful, light fast and strong cruising yacht built and maintained without regard to budgets. She is equipped with the best gear and sails and is available at well below the replacement cost of $3 million.

Layout and Design

Accomodations/Vessel Walk-Through

To port and starboard of the main companionway are twin guest staterooms, each with a double berth and generous storage space. Both cabins share a common head, located to starboard. To port is the wraparound galley, designed to be at the point of least pitching motion. Even for a 63' yacht this is a generous working area, thoughtfully placing all the major components within each reach and maximizing storage space, yet allowing the chef enough room to stand straight even at severe angles of heel. This portion of the counter on the center-line doubles as the engine box, allowing access on all sides. 

Forward of the head, on the starboard side, is the comprehensively equipped navigation station. In addition to a complete array of navigation instruments, SCEPTRE'D ISLE boasts a chart table which is large enough to allow charts to be spread out. 

The nontraditional layout of the main saloon, a U-shaped settee and table to port, and a straight settee with lockers to starboard, is uniquely welcoming. Any sailor will immediately feel at home here. There is a flat screen TV, which is accompaning by a DVD player and surround sound with subwoofer. 

Forward of the mast, in a reversal of traditional roles, is the owner's stateroom, with a double berth to port and a settee and vanity to starboard. Outboard of the latter are ample hanging lockers. Forward still is the en-suite head compartment. The forepeak is mostly devoted stowage, although it does support a pipe berth and minimal head facilites. 

Walking aft and out the companion way, one is struck by how cohesive SCEPTRE'D ISLE is in the way she carries the traditional aspects of her design throughout yet also in the modern engineering and construction methods through wich she achieves her performance goals.


The galley is located down. It has a Force 10 4-burner propane stove, and oven. GE microwave oven, and a Grunert 110/engine fridge/freezer.

Sceptre'd Isle came to us in last summer of 2012.  Pete Sweeney, the yacht's captain, has been a longtime friend and customer of Lyman-Morse.  He came to us with high expectations, and we met them.  Said Pete upon his departure from Lyman-Morse, "You did what you said you would, in the amount of time you said you would, for less money than you said you would.  To top it off, everyone on the project was a joy to work with."

A significant amount of carpentry work went into the refit project.  A new bow pulpit was built, we did some work on the toerail, we rebuilt some of the cabinetry in the salon area, repaired hatches and replaced some of the teak decking.  

The hull was Awlgripped and the cabin top was repainted as well. A new Offshore mast was installed and the boom was instected and serviced.  She received new rod rigging, new running rigging, and new Doyle Stratis sails: Main, 110 jib, staysail.  New lifelines and work around the mast collar rounded out the deck/rigging work.

The cutlass bearing was replaced.  Running lights and hydraulic lines were repaired as well.  New varnish finished off the project.

Pete and his mate Brad were a pleasure to work with!
