Allied 33 Help....

Hello all,

I'm a New England sailor based out of Newburyport, MA. I've got a wife, dog and two growing kids. I'm seriously contemplating plopping some money down for a 1968 Allied Luders33, Anyone have any experience with these beauties? We are also thinking of seasonally mooring the boat out of Belfast. ME for the 2008 season. Any experience with both the boat and/or Belfast that anyone cares to pass my way would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Christian

I've appreciated every boat I've been aboard that had the word "allied" in front of it. Good quality.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Ooh, I crewed on several Luders 44 yawls in my learning days too. Wonderful design. So, the combination Allied and Luders can't go wrong.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Thanks for all of the great responses! Although I'm new to this board, I'm liking what I see. See you all on the water.

I have one and love it.

I have a Allied - Luders 33. I cannot think of a better boat for my wife and I. She is as solid as they come and sails almost as well as our old Sea Sprite 23 did. If you like, feel free to PM me with any questions. My address is in the profile. You will not be surprised at my address.

I have had the boat for 4 years and I have spent most of that time cleaning her up after 10 years of launched, sailed, hauled stored. At this point, I am not even sure he changed the oil in the engine that entire time. Anyway, she gets better every year.

Cheers
Dennis

LG: What is your opinion of the boat as a liveaboard for one person, perhaps two at times? Also, have you or anyone reading this cruised extensively on the boat? I so what are your opinions? Thanks.

A look at the time/date stamp on LazyGuy's post shows that it was put up two years and nine months ago, OaklandSailor. He hasn't logged in here since February '08, so chances are he will not be answering your questions.

There may be other readers, though, who have the answers for you, so be patient.

Good luck.

I suppose someday I'll remember to look, but still, someone like yourself on the topic will probably have some input. Thanks for the heads up.

Aloha Oakland,
My personal opinion is that the 33 would be an ideal size and the Allied Luders a great choice for you. No, I don't have experience on them, but a check with the owners association will get you some responses I'm certain. That was a few posts up by Gord May.

Thanks for your input. It is definitely on my short list.

The email address for the Luders Owners came back as undeliverable, but I did find an a Yahoo Group for them. To my eye these are very good looking sailboat. Maybe I can find one someplace nearby and take a look.

Look at other boats too. When looking to buy there are some boats that will meet your needs just as well. The key issue is that you like their design, they have a good reputation and they have been well maintained by the previous owners.
kind regards,
