This 2002 Alerion Express 28 "Frolic" is a classic above the waterline and a speedster below the waterline. Sailboats are by nature graceful, and many claim to please your eye. But the Alerion Express 28 has consistently been recognized as one of the prettiest boats on the water. She has a thoroughly modern underwater shape which adds to her lustre. A maximized cockpit and cabin makes the Alerion Express 28 the perfect cruising yacht for you and your spouse for weekend adventures or just a spur of the moment evening or after work sail. By preserving the traditional look topside-where it shows, 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 along with the pride and admiration they bring. A very manageable sail plan with a self tacking jib boom is easily single-handed. And even the most die-hard racers speak of how beautifully balanced and delightful to sail the Alerion Express 28 is. This daysailer is by far the most popular of all the modern day sailors. With her inception in the mid 90's the AE28 was also the first model to start this trend. Currently, there are active one design fleets for the AE28 throughout the country. The fleets range in size from 6 to 25 boats. With basic "main and jib only" rules there is no shortage of excitement and great sailing. AE28 sailing is simple, fun and allows you to sail on your own terms...
