Alerion 41 gets new PowerFurl Boom

Launched in fall 2013, this Alerion 41 is rigged with a carbon PowerFurl boom from GMT Composites. This new series in the Alerion line-up, first launched in Spring of 2013, is their largest to date. Alerion is a U.S. Watercraft brand and built in Rhode Island, right around the corner from GMT Composites.

The Alerion 41 follows the same design ethos as the complete range of six Alerion models from 20’ to 41’. They have classic lines above the water line coupled with modern underbellies, hi-tech impeccable construction, and set-up for easy short-handed sailing.

It was the ease of handling design criteria and quality construction which brought Alerion to GMT’s PowerFurl boom. Scott Bryant, US Watercraft’s VP of Sales & Marketing, spear headed the move for the owner and said, “Alerion is all about top notch construction and function. We are looking forward to working with GMT in rigging the newest 41 with their PowerFurl carbon boom with its integrated electric motor. It will make for easy mainsail management with its push button simplicity, while its quality and looks will fit the boat’s aesthetic well”.
