Alerion Yachts built its rep­u­ta­tion on de­sign­ing and con­struct­ing sleek, el­e­gant sail­ing yachts that pro­vide ex­hil­er­at­ing per­for­mance. The Alerion Ex­press 30 has a teak-trimmed in­te­rior for week­end­ing or get­ting out of the weather when it’s foul out­side. There’s a for­ward V-berth with a por­ta­ble head hid­den be­neath it. Abaft that is a saloon with port and star­board set­tees. Just in­side the com­pan­ion­way is a gal­ley with a one-burner cook­top and a cooler.

In the cock­pit are sail con­trols and wide-di­am­e­ter wheel steer­ing. The deck is trimmed with var­nished teak. The sailplan in­cludes a roller-furl­ing jib and gen­naker with a loose-footed, fully bat­tened main.
