A Carl Schumacher designed daysailor/weekender that sails like a dream. The Alerion Express 28 is a wonderful design from a very accomplished naval architect. She has traditional lines taken from the Herreshoff original, with a modern underbody and sail plan. She has the Hoyt boom on the jib which makes her extremely easy to sail. The cockpit is large and roomy for the single-hander or a family. She has a dodger for windy weather and has the displacement to stand up to windy conditions.
OO RAH! is a very lightly used example of an Alerion Express. Her diesel has less than 175 hours on her. But she has been lovingly maintained by both of her owners.
Beautiful daysailors are the ultimate boat for busy folks that don't need the complexity of a larger cruiser. She's got an inboard diesel, comfy little cabin and can get underway in less than 10 minutes. She's just been hauled for fresh bottom paint and sail drive service and is in remarkable shape. This is the nicest Alerion you'll find in Puget Sound. Come over to Bainbridge Island and take a look!

The new trend to elegant day sailers was pioneered by the notable beauty of this Carl Schumacher design, which sailors instinctively pause to admire. Quality produced by Pearson Composites, utilizing the SCRIMP system of resin infusion by vacuum, the AE 28 also delivers outstanding performance under sail, and is specifically designed to be easily single handed. We have a 15 minute DVD that amply demonstrates that advantage. With a fin keel and spade rudder providing exceptional maneuverability and stability, the Hoyt Jib Boom bringing off wind speed, and a 14-hp Yanmar Diesel Sail Drive adding reliable power, this beautifully balanced boat sets the standard for the ideal day sailer.

Her interior has sitting headroom and a v-berth.
There is a small galley that could make for some fun summer weekends.
