ALASKAN SONG has been a legendary charter yacht in SE Alaska, and for Summer 2023 has new Owner Operators!

3 spacious outside deck areas provide ideal places for watching (and photographing) whales and wildlife! The Main Deck has safety railings all around.

  1. The Fore Deck forward is open for unobstructed visibility, with a teak seating bench.
  2. The Aft Deck is covered for weather protection. A table can seat 8.
  3. Above is a Top Deck area with open views, a bimini top for weather protection, 3 benches and a helm station.

Going inside, one door enters the Library / Aft Salon with couch, card table with chairs, wet bar with sink, locking liquor cabinet, ice-maker and extensive teak moldings, doors and cabinetry.

The pilot house is raised up three steps which yields excellent visibility forward and to both sides and doors out both sides.

Further forward, you step down to the Main Salon & Galley with side and forward view windows.

ALASKAN SONG was built in wood as a high-speed Air/Sea Rescue boat for the Army Air Corps at the end of WWII.  In the mid-1970s she was stripped to a bare hull.  A naval architect designed a new layout, the below deck bulkheads were rearranged, a new plywood and fiberglass deck was laid, the all-aluminum superstructure was fabricated and installed, and a custom teak interior was crafted.
