The Skye 51 was commissioned by the John G. Alden Company, designed by the naval architects Kaufman & Ladd of Annapolis and built by Mao Ta Shipyard in Taiwan. Eighteen Skye 51’s were built under the direct supervision of Alden and are highly sought after by world cruisers. The design was for a “blue water performance cruising yacht” easily handled by a couple and intended for world voyaging. As such, the Skye 51 has been designed, engineered, and built to quality standards comparable with the finest yachts in the world. Few performance cruising designs built today have the exceptional strength, and classic styling that the Skye 51 offers. Yemaya is a cutter ketch-rig. This allows a variety of sail combinations to suit the conditions. Her current owner sails her easily solo or as a couple. Major refit 2015-2020 (over $180,000) including autopilots, refrigeration, watermaker, rigging, ground tackle, safety equipment, dinghy & outboard, battery banks, electronics etc. She is well equipped to continue cruising the world off the grid in style, safety and comfort.
