Alerion Express 33

The Alerion Express 33 features a combination of modern underwater lines and a 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.
