Originally launched as Alisa V, the 96' twin screw diesel was the largest of all pleasure craft built in America in 1956. She carries with her the historical significance of being Broward's very first private yacht as Hull#1 aka "Queen of The Fleet". Her pedigree is without rival as a US built icon that helped set the bar for American made superyachts .
She was the first large wooden yacht to apply lamination techniques developed by the US Navy at a cost of $6M in 1957 ($52M equivalent 2017); the same technology the Navy used to build mine sweepers! She was billed as the strongest wooden boat of her size ever built.

Her aft deck is a spacious 19 1/2'X17' entering in to the main salon (currently set up as office) through Lucite doors and safety glass that creates a sense of space that is over 10 yards deep as you enter.
The focal point of the main salon (20'X14') is the original built in Brazilian Rosewood bar and stereo cabinet. Four of the eight main salon windows roll all the way down with the original heavy duty Kearfott New York crank handles, ideal for the indoor/outdoor San Diego lifestyle.
Beneath the aft deck is a guest stateroom (currently an office and ET room). The aft guest stateroom has an en suite head and full tub. While she still has the original pink marble counter top and tub, the head and shower room need refurbishing.
Under the main salon is the master suite with California King size bed and en suite head with Jacuzzi tub. The sink still has the original gold plated dolphin fixtures!
A virtual maritime museum, the pilothouse boasts the original Alisa V helm wheel, Westinghouse helm controls and massive gimbaled compass.
Forward of the pilothouse is the formal dining room (20 1/2'X13') includes the original avodire table with Brazilian Rosewood trim with ample seating for 6 to 8. The entire room is done in exotic avodire wood with built in cabinetry fore and aft also trimmed in Brazilian Rosewood. The dining room also has 4 of 8 total windows designed to roll down for semi al fresco dining. This room is large enough to repurpose as a second salon.
Integrated as a 'secret companionway' to starboard forward in the dining room is an entry to stairs leading down to the original galley and guest/crew berths and stowage for 4 passengers with head and shower. *NOTE ALL GALLEY EQUIPMENT HAS BEEN REMOVED AND FORWAD GUEST QUARTERS NEEDS REFURBISHING.
Towards the port aft area of the dining room is another staircase leading to the second of 3 total guest staterooms to supplement the master. The amidship guest stateroom has 2 berths, 2 closets and en suite head and shower with the original gold plated sea horse fixtures in the sink. All original built in stowage under berths and vanity are of bird's eye maple wood.
Powered by her twin Supercharged Cummins 600 HP 12 cylinder diesels, the Alisa V originally cruised at 13 knots with nominal wake generated by her efficient semi-displacement hull. *NOTE THIS VESSEL IS CURRENTLY MECHAINCALLY INOPERABLE, BUT DOES HAVE THE ORIGINAL POWER PLANT
