2009 Alerion 38 Express

Classic 2009 Alerion Express 38 The beauty and inspiration of the Alerion Express 38 comes from renowned yacht designer Nathanael Herreshoff dating back to 1912. Fast forward over a century and she represents the highest form of the modern classic daysailer. With her gorgeous classic lines and spacious, secure cockpit, she is sure to please. What about performance? Thanks to her high sail area/displacement ratio and modest wetted surface, performance is better than good. She’ll turn on a dime with excellent responsiveness to the wheel. The 38’s sail plan combines the power of a tall carbon mast and large roach mainsail with the ease of a small self-tacking jib. This configuration offers a superb blend with simple, easy sail tending into one package. With all lines led aft to port and starboard electric Harken winches the helmsman can tend all the sail controls from the wheel, leaving the crew to enjoy wind, water and cocktails! Belowdecks, she offers a beautifully finished, classic Herreshoff interior complete with a teak and holly sole, inviting and comfortable for overnighting. In the saloon, the starboard settee measures 5′ 4″ long and the port settee is 6′ 5″, giving the boat two decent sea berths. Built by Pearson, her construction utilizes the SCRIMP process which combines the advantages of vacuum-bagging and high glass-to-resin ratios of about 70:30 for stiff, lightweight laminates.

Manufacturer Provided Description

This is the long limbed big sister to the pace setting AE 28 and a strong family resemblance is evident in the balanced overhangs, delicate sheer and proportionate cabin. A combination of Carl Schumacher's underwater lines and a new deck, cockpit, cabin and topside by the Pearson design Group has produced a yacht that lives up to the Herreshoff legacy of classic beauty. The amazing strength of a modern carbon fiber mast by Hall Spars safely allows the elimination of the backstay, which in turn frees the mainsail for significantly larger size and better aerodynamic shape-proven by record setting windsurfers, multihulls and America's Cup contenders. Sail control by electric winches enables one person to hoist, reef, trim and lower sail, all from the wheel station. With the patented Hoyt Jib Boom adding offwind power, this is a 2 sail, self tacking rig that projects more sail area than any ordinary rig with a 150% genoa. The payoff is excellent light wind and offwind speed-all easily single-handed. Sail tests indicate speed superior to the competition and all for more reasonable price.
