ABOUT ALCHEMY

ALCHEMY is arguably one of the best looking and finest classic Feadships ever built. She has been continually upgraded and kept in outstanding condition throughout her life and has completed her most recent major refit in 2014 that included, among many other things, zero time main engine rebuilds by CAT and an Awlgrip paint job.  She was specifically designed and built to cruise the world in style, comfort and safety, which she has done many times. Just returned from a Pacific NW cruise.
