" Redheads" 2009 28 Alerion Express
The Alerion Express 28 is consistently recognized as one of the prettiest boats on the water. That she also has a thoroughly modern underwater shape simply adds to her luster.
A maximized cockpit and cabin makes the Alerion Express 28 the perfect yacht for you and your partner – for weekend adventures or just a spur of the moment evening or after-work sail.
By preserving the traditional look topside 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. Not to mention the pride and admiration they bring.
A very manageable sailplan with a self-tacking jib boom is easily singlehanded. And even the most die-hard racers speak of how beautifully balanced and delightful the Alerion Express 28 is to sail.”
The recently painted red bottom under a buffed blue hull and white decks makes this Alerion Express stunning. The Yanmar (14hp) powering the sail drive with the folding prop delivers a smooth controllable drive when the “iron sail” is needed.
The classic tiller, long open cockpit with high coaming, and easily accessed to the running rigging makes for a safe and comfortable sail. The tri-data electronics (speed, wind direction and depth) are located on the port bulkhead with a Ritche Compass located on the starboard side. The excellent condition footloose club jib and mainsail makes sailing this vessel a breeze.
The cabin offers many amenities: single burner propane stove, deep steel sink and ice box (that doubles as the step). The head is located below the port-side V berth cushions. The curtained V berth provides a sleeping berth for two people.
For a 2009 Alerion the overall condition of “Redhead” is excellent
For being 10 years old this boat is amazing, The hull is in excellent condition, bot running and standing rigging are in great shape. This day sailor is worth seeing.
