"Sailboats are by nature graceful, and many claim to please your eye. But the Alerion Express 28 has consistently been recognized as one of the prettiest boats on the water. That she also has a thoroughly modern underwater shape simply adds to her lustre." ~ Alerion Yachts
LUMEN SOLARE is a wonderful example of the Alerion 28. A classic beauty above the waterline and a modern hull/keel below the waterline combine to make a boat that has pleasing lines and is both comfortable and competitive. This is hull #78 and is equipped with a jib boom, self-tailing primary winches, Yanmar 9hp diesel, cockpit cushions, fresh water system and freshly varnished exterior and interior teak accents. Recent improvements include new Hall Spars mast, standing rigging, North Main & Genoa and B&G electronics.
Adequate accommodations below for two or three to spend a night or weekend on board with sitting headroom. The finish is done Herreshoff style with varnished teak trim on white flat panels with a varnished teak and holly sole. There are swivel style reading lamps at the berths and settees.
Starting forward is a V-berth with filler with bin type storage below. Aft and to port is a manual W.C. which is covered with a cushion extending the V-berth when not in use.
Along the starboard side to the cabin is a sink and cabinet, then a short single settee followed by an expansive counter area that serves as a nav. station. A large ice chest is on center line and provides a step down from the cockpit while housing chilled drinks and food stuffs.
Along the port side is a full length settee with storage behind the seat back and in a shelf above.
Hull and Deck
White GRP hull. The exterior laminates of the hull are laid up using vinyl ester resin for superior osmotic blister resistance.
The over sized cockpit will easily allow a sailing party of up to six. Large sail lockers port and starboard provide an abundance of storage. The cockpit is well laid out and ergonomically convenient for someone sailing single handed or with a larger group.

Manufacturer Provided Description
Sailboats are by nature graceful, and many claim to please your eye. But the Alerion Express 28 has consistently been recognized as one of the prettiest boats on the water. That she also has a thoroughly modern underwater shape simply adds to her luster.
A maximized cockpit and cabin makes the Alerion Express 28 the perfect cruising yacht for you and your spouse – for weekend adventures or just a spur of the moment evening or after-work sail.
By preserving the traditional look topside – where it shows, and giving the hull a modern design below the waterline, the Alerion Express 28 offers the best of both worlds: great style and great performance along with the pride and admiration they bring.
A very manageable sail plan with a self-tacking jib boom is easily single-handed. And even the most die-hard racers speak of how beautifully balanced and delightful to sail the Alerion Express 28 is.
With over 450 AE28’s worldwide, this daysailer is by far the most popular of all the modern daysailers. With her inception in the mid 90’s the AE 28 was also the first model to start this trend.
Currently, there are five active one design fleets for the AE 28 throughout the country. The fleets range in size from 6 to 25 boats; with basic “main and jib only” rules there is no shortage of excitement and great sailing.
