Earlier this month we launched a truly exquisite Alerion Express 38.  Thanks to an imaginative client and his seasoned broker, this yacht had several unique features that were new to the AE38.  The most noticeable feature was the custom carbon fiber V-boom manufactured by Hall Spars.

This highly finished boom makes sail handling and stowing a snap.  The sail stores “inside” the boom with an integrated cover that prolongs the life of the sail.  Besides the function of this boom, it beautifully matches the Alerion asthetic .  The teak deck on this boat was also a beautiful addition.

Down below, the settee area converted from two single berths to two flip-up pilot berths and a modest “double” berth on the port side.  This satisfied the owners desire to do some gunkholing with his growing family.  The installation of a hybrid electric stove and microwave with inverter were also nice additions to this boat.  This was also the first AE38 to receive our own “corian” countertops.  Both the head and galley countertops were molded and machined using a specialized phenolic resin formulated by our in house R & D team.
