2010 Alerion 28
Boat Type: Daysailer Address: Alameda, CA, US Price: $93,000


You are looking for a beautiful classic looking daysailer, that has been cared for, upgraded, and is ready to be enjoyed, without having to risk finding issues at survey, or needing to spend money right away on maintenance or upgrades.

Skipjack is just that. A beautiful green hulled Alerion, but not just any Alerion. Her first owner purchased her as a replacement for his original Alerion Express 28, so when he placed his order, he made sure to ask for a few custom extras.

Since then she has been stored indoors from 2010-2017 during the offseason in New England. Sails removed, washed, and folded neatly. Canvas scrubbed, cosmetics and every detail addressed. 

Upon arrival to the west coast, her second, and current owner, sent her to the premier KKMI shipyard to address anything and everything that the boat needed, from a full engine service, to some new standing rigging, even treating the hull and mast to a wipe of AwlCare.

Key Highlights Include:

  • Full set of pulpit, stanchions, pushpit and lifelines
  • Custom dodger
  • Many custom teak features (cockpit sole flooring, drink holders, table)
  • Full electronics package including newly installed (8/17 Raymarine ST2000+ Tiller Pilot)
  • Beautiful green Awlgrip hull paint and white Awlgrip White Mast/Spreaders/Boom

Maintenance is up to date:

  • May 2019 Bottom paint, including stripping keel and new epoxy barrier coat applied, new zincs
  • Propeller removed, cleaned, hub lubricated, prop painted with PropSpeed (5/19)
  • Sail drive oil changed, boot replaced (5/19)
  • Engine fluids and filters replaced (5/19)
  • Engine, heat exchanger, and saildrive service (8/17)
