Alouette is a lovely boat that is in beautiful shape. Her current owners love their boat (and it shows), but a change in plans means they're selling her.
Alouette is very nicely equipped, with an oversized destroyer wheel, custom stern pulpit with seats, extensive electronics, and a stack pack for the main. Built in 1991, but not commissioned until she was purchased as a new boat in 1994, she's been consistently upgraded by her owners over the years. Her original 27 hp Volvo diesel was replaced with by a 55 hp Yanmar in 2005. With new mast blocks and rigid boom vang in 2009; new full batten main with lazy cradle, Fast Track mast car system, 150% furling genoa, 2 spinnakers, rod rigging, Harken roller furler and halyards in 2010; new awlgriup interior varnish in 2011; new masthead sheaves, mast wiring, mast step, VHF antenna, radar, Raymarine eS75 platter with wifi,VHF with AIS and remote mic, speed, depth and wind instruments, and running lights in 2015; new batteries and inverter in 2016, the list of upgrades just goes on and on.
Race her, or just cruise her - she's well set up for either. She's completely set up for singlehanding, too. More photos and complete specs coming soon!
This boat is not at our docks, so please be sure to call ahead for an appointment to see her
On the bow roller, Allouette carries a Fortress FX23 Anchor with 100' of Stainless Steel chan and 200' of rode. She also carries an FX16 with 20' of stainless chain and 250' of rode. Aft of the bow pulpit, the Harken furler (new 2010) is recessed beneath the foredeck. Just aft is the anchor locker and Simpson Lawrence windlass with remote control at the helm.
A spinnaker pole (new 2010) is mounted on the forward surface of the mast. The full batten main (new 2010) is stored in a lazy bag system that makes it easy to control and cover. All rigging is led aft beneath the decking, and the grab rails are recessed, leaving a clear passage forward with few trip hazards.
The cockpit is t-shaped and comfortably accomodates four or more. The custom stern pulpit has two additional seats and a gate which allows access to the small sugar scoop swim platform and swimming ladder aft.
Alouette's interior features and owners' cabin aft with an en suite head and stall shower, and a v-berth, head and shower forward.

The galley is equipped with a Fource 10 3 burner stove, frigoboat refrigeration, a double stainless steel sink, and lots of storage. All interior wood was recoated in 2011 with awlgrip varnish.
