Very lightly used deep keel version of this Carl Schumacher modern classic daysailer/overnighter. Full electronics, upgraded Volvo Sail-drive, Flag Blue Awlgrip hull, excellent double axle trailer, good sails and a smooth bottom.
BUILDERS COMMENTS: "A maximized cockpit and cabin makes the Alerion Express 28 the perfect cruising yacht for you and your spouse – for weekend adventures or just a spur of the moment evening or after-work sail.
By preserving the traditional look topside – where it shows, and giving the hull a modern design below the waterline, the Alerion Express 28 offers the best of both worlds: great style and great performance along with the pride and admiration they bring.
A very manageable sail plan with a self-tacking jib boom is easily single-handed. And even the most die-hard racers speak of how beautifully balanced and delightful to sail the Alerion Express 28 is.
With over 450 boats worldwide, this daysailer is by far the most popular of all the modern day sailers. With her inception in the mid 90’s the Alerion 28 was also the first model to start this trend.
Currently, there are five active one design fleets throughout the country. The fleets range in size from 6 to 25 boats; with basic “main and jib only” rules there is no shortage of excitement and great sailing." ~ Alerion
