The exciting new Alerion 41 has just been launched by Alerion's talented staff of designers and engineers. For those who want their Alerion experience to extend past the hour or afternoon experienced on the Express or Sport series, the new “Alerion” Series of sailboats accommodates up to six people for extended cruising. The design brief for the stunning new Alerion 41 has been clearly defined from the outset.
Maintain strong family resemblance and performance heritage of the AE33 and AE38.
Maintain the philosophy of single-handed ease and Alerion Sailing with low force level of operation for which the marque is renowned.
Provide the purchaser with endless sailing enjoyment and stress free ownership.
The profile shows the natural development from the 33 and 38 with an elegant sheer, low coachroof, and elliptical port lights (to be opening in this model). The bow and stern profiles use the same geometry and family of curves that are derived from the very DNA of Alerion-Express and Alerion Sport.
The cockpit is the heart and sole of the 41 maintaining the format of her smaller sisters with comfortable settees port and starboard and command center aft. However, the A41 has room for a pedestal table and winch islands that accommodate powerful reversible self tailing electric winches. The Alerion 41 sets a new low in the force level required to sail a boat of this size.
Aft, the helmsperson can feel every nuance of the pulse of this thoroughbred through the pedestal mounted steering wheel. Control of all the sailing functions are close at hand; push button reversible winch controls, traveler adjustments, auto pilot or auxiliary, mainsheet and furler. The A41 takes Alerion Sailing to the next logical exciting plateau.
The uncluttered deck layout afforded by under deck control line leads has allowed the design team to add such innovative features as a below decks stowing anchor chute and anchor windlass which allows an uninterrupted sweep of the sheer while underway. The water access system (see gallery) enables the transom to be converted to a marvelous boarding area either from swimming or from a dinghy. The convertibility aspect of the water access feature, allows the clean lines of the hull to be unspoiled while underway or at anchor.
Below decks the Alerion 41’s interior is second to none. The hand-finished bulkheads and doors are masterpieces of modern yacht construction with more than an acknowledging nod to the days of Vanderbilt and Sopwith. The 41 interior can be bespoke; finished in the owner’s choice of American Cherry, exotic Teak or a combination of wood furniture and white bulkheads.
The main cabin features 6'6" standing headroom and wonderfully comfortable settees forward with both able to convert into comfortable single berths. The spacious lockers outboard of the settees are accessed via beautifully crafted, solid wood, panel doors.
In these days of electronic navigation a formal chart table has been replaced by a drop down desk large enough for a lap top computer. Outboard of the desk is the back-lit main electrical panel mounted in a locker face. There is plenty of space forward of the panel to add the additional electronics that are desired. The navigation desk easily drops down to make a full length settee or berth.
The galley provides all the necessities for onboard meal preparation. Hot and cold pressure water, double stainless steel sink, 2 vacuum panel insulated refrigerated ice boxes and LPG stove with an oven as well as a microwave. As with everything in life this arrangement may not suit all owners and their crews. Alerion is always prepared to work with individual clients to customize the 41 to suit their needs.
Aft is the entry door to a second sleeping cabin that provides privacy for a second couple not always found on other yachts of this class. This light airy cabin can be a haven for those wanting to grab a quick nap while the fun continues either on deck or below. A hanging locker provides ample storage while overhead and cockpit hatches provide plenty of fresh sea breeze.
The head compartment features a sizeable shower area and electric head. Light and ventilation are provided by an overhead Lewmar hatch and a stainless steel port in the house side. Light and ventilation in general is provided by opening ports and skylights plus the companionway.
Completing the interior ensemble is the spacious forward cabin, accessed via a paneled door in the main bulkhead. With plenty of storage in a hanging locker and bureau an extended stay on the Alerion 41 is easy. The forward cabin has plenty of ventilation and equal amount of privacy. The oversized v-berth with filler piece makes for a comfortable place to sleep or nap.
By now you will understand why the Alerion 41 will be such an exceptional yacht, and such an exceptional experience.
The features speak for themselves:
Big powerful rig with carbon spars and North Norlam sails for exceptional performance.
Thoroughbred hull lines coupled with rudder and keel designs that are all Alerion inspired
A wonderful cockpit design that is ergonomically perfect for daysailing / cruising enjoyment and single handed ease.
Low force level of operation with energy saving race-tuned equipment and systems.
A powerful 40 hp diesel auxiliary for those days when the breeze takes a vacation.
An elegance of design that instills a pride of ownership without peer.
First in-class innovative opening transom.
