About Alden the boat designer

John G. Alden began his design career as an apprentice with B. B. Crowninshield (MIT Class of 1889) in 1902 and became a productive designer and experienced sailor by the time he departed to start his own Boston design office in 1909. His initial success was modest until he won his first Bermuda Race with Malabar IV in 1923. Alden’s subsequent Bermuda Race victories in 1926 with Malabar VII and Malabar X in 1932 provided his firm enduring fame and success. This long-lived design business finally closed for good in 2008. George Lawley’s grandson Fred started this yard in Quincy in 1906. It failed in 1929 and was sold to Harold Noyes, who renamed it the Quincy Adams Yacht Yard.
