power & speed: Rumery's Alerion has captured the essence of Nathanael Herreshoff original design of 1912. Rumery's is the only builder to deliver this
beautiful daysailer,carefully blending Herreshoff's exquisite
lines, faithfully, with high performance modern construction
we build is very close to the original lines
as drawn by Herreshoff. Below the waterline and above.
Versatile, Alerion's stability and predictability make
her ideal for family's, racing, and single handled sailing.
construction and sleek lines make for powerful yet surefooted and
comfortable performance in strong wind. Drawing only 2' 5"
with the center board up, Alerion can sneak into coves and shallows
easily and confidently.
Her cabin is warm and snug, with ample room to chart
a course, read a book, or take a nap. A cruising interior is also
available, complete with galley, double bunk, reading chair, and
navigation station. Alerion's elegant mahogany house sides and coamings,
rails, and louvered doors along with the teak cockpit and cockpit
sole are masterfully constructed and finished by Rumery's builders.
Alerion incorporates the best in fiberglass technology.
Vinyl ester resin and high-density closed cell core make for an exceptionally
light-weight hull with incredible strength and rigidity. A lighter
hull and deck with a cast lead ballast lowers her center of gravity
and increases performance handling and stability.
Alerion with optional wood spars
is dedicated to quality craftsmanship; we custom build Alerion
to your personal requirements and taste.
