The Alerion Express 30 is the first Alerion offered with the option of a carbon-fiber bowsprit for the asymmetric gennaker. Combined with a full-roach mainsail and swept-spreader carbon-fiber mast, the Alerion 30 is a true thoroughbred. Add in the lightweight, stiff construction, utilizing a reinforced structural grid and vinyl ester-infused hull with foam core, and you are guaranteed elegant performance on all points of sail, through the widest range of conditions. Working with the naval architects at Langan Design Partners, no detail was overlooked – from the recessed headsail furling unit to the flush-mounted chainplates – when optimizing the design of this yacht.
The Alerion Express 30 includes everything you love about Alerion Yachts. The roomy cockpit has seating for a full complement of friends, and comforts abound below, where woodwork, detail, and finish are proof that the Alerion 30 is a proper yacht. We’ve even maximized headroom and interior volume to make it roomy enough for a weekend adventure.
Sailing systems, from the self-tacking jib to efficient deck layout, are engineered for simplicity, allowing you to welcome aboard companions of every skill level and also to singlehand with ease. Easy to set up and put away, every detail is designed to allow more time for sailing. With the Alerion 30, we invite you to experience Alerion Sailing – sailing the way it should be.
