"Hooligan" is a fine example of the Alden designed 35' Fuji Ketch.
She's powered by a Yanmar 3HM35F, has newer batteries,
Prosine battery charger/inverter and Matrix tank monitor.
She features Raymarine and TackTick instrumentation, including autopilot, speed, depth and wind.
The Iverson dodger, sail covers and bimini canvas are all in good condition.
The interior is clean and leak free.
This is a wonderful boat at a great price.
>[?The John G. Alden office has been known for years for producing fine performing yachts. The Fuji follows in this tradition. It is of a hull form that traces its model back to the well-known Alden schooners.
The sheer and other aesthetic treatments on the hull are done with impeccable taste. The beam on deck is generous.
This makes for a very dry boat and has the bonus of affording large side decks and a huge cockpit area. While the Fuji won't point like an IOR racing yacht, she will move to weather well, to cruising boat standards.
The keel is long but cut away slightly forward to improve maneuverability.
The large transom and the minimum overhang of the mizzen boom is ideal for attaching a self-steering device.
The displacement / length ratio of the Fuji 35 is 413. This indicates the Fuji is in the heavy displacement area.
Very few people can go below a Fuji for the first time without some sort of pleasant exclamation. The woodwork is of a quality that is all but extinct and has to be one of the main selling points of the Fuji. The builder is Fuji Yacht Builders, Japan. The molding details are some of the best that can be found on a production yacht. Wood lovers will feel right at home. The builder has gone to the trouble of matching all the grains, and the overall impression is beautiful. The layout of the Fuji is quite simple and a time-proven winner.
