Boat Description

The Alerion Express 20 is a tried and true Day Sailer that has been brought back by popular demand. Widely imitated, this design carries the indelible strength of a Carl Schumacher original. All the Alerion essentials are present--classic topside, modern underbody, gratifying speed and single-handed ease. Note the fingertip control as the boat charges along on a beam reach in a brisk southwest breeze on Narragansett Bay. The special features are open cockpit, complete simplicity and a friendly price designed to introduce sailors to the Alerion Express Fleet.
