There are substantial differences between these two boats, given their common heritage. The original Alerion (Herreshoff's) was first gaff rigged then later a gunter rig was installed, both foreward of the cabin and with long booms - no backstay. She was always a ballasted centerboard design.

The sophisticated reader knows the differences that matter.

What is Alerion Express? Pearson Composites LLC makes a line of very nice production boats marketed under the name Alerion Express. They make 20', 28', 38' & 45' models, "cast in a different mold."
