Overview

USWatercraft is proud to announce the newest addition to the Alerion Yachts line – the Alerion Sport 30. Alerion Yachts are renowned for their traditional beauty combined with modern design, and the Alerion Sport 30 is no exception. The same aesthetics and attention to detail now pair seamlessly with exciting new performance features and 21st century construction details.

The Alerion Sport 30 is the first Alerion offered with the option of a carbon-fiber bowsprit for the asymmetrical spinnaker. Combined with a full-roach mainsail and Hall carbon-fiber mast, the Alerion Sport 30 has the makings of a thoroughbred. Add in the lightweight, stiff construction, utilizing a carbon-reinforced structural grid and vinyl ester-infused hull with foam core, and you are guaranteed elegant performance on all points of sail, through the widest range of conditions. Working with the naval architects at Langan Design Partners, no detail was overlooked – from the recessed headsail furling unit to the carbon rudder post – when optimizing the design of this yacht.

The Alerion Sport 30 also includes everything you love about Alerion yachts. The maximized cockpit has seats long enough for a nap or seating for a full complement of friends. Creature comforts abound below where woodwork, detail, and finish are proof that the Alerion Sport 30 is a proper yacht. We’ve maximized headroom and interior volume to make it roomy enough for a weekend adventure. Sailing systems, from the self-tacking jib to efficient deck layout, are engineered for simplicity, allowing you to welcome aboard companions of every skill level and also singlehand with ease.

Like every Alerion, the Alerion Sport 30 is easy to set up and put away, allowing more time for sailing. With the Alerion Sport 30, we invite you to experience Alerion Sailing – sailing the way it should be.
