The Alerion 28 is the perfect platform for day sailing. With a self tacking jib, spacious cockpit, and a light tiller, these boats are a pleasure to sail. They are surprisingly nimble and fast upwind, and when you decide to make a turn to head home, go wing-on-wing and take advantage of that Hoyt Jib boom.
On offer here is a 2006 AE28 'Varuna'. She has been stored indoors for 8-9 months most winters, and the owner has maintained her very well. She's on the hard in Hingham Massachusetts and awaiting your visit.
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. 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.
On Varuna the teak has been well-maintained on a yearly basis. The Raymarine ST60 instruments all in good working order, and all original cushions are in excellent condition. Her bottom paint and zincs have been updated each year. The owner replaced her Main and jib with identical North Dacron sails in 2014.
