Alerion Yachts is celebrating the launch of the first Alerion 41, which is also the 650th Alerion to be built.

With the model, Alerion is extending its reach from express and sport lines of daysailers to a new series of cruising boats, the company announced.

The Alerion 41 features an open transom for swimming and boarding access. A folding anchor roller remains concealed until it is needed without affecting interior volume. The boat also features standing headroom, a large main salon and two sleeping cabins.

"There isn't a better way to celebrate this incredible milestone of launching the 650th Alerion than to have it be the Alerion 41,” sales and marketing vice president Scott Bryant said in a statement.

Alerion yachts are built in a range of lengths from 20 to 41 feet by USWatercraft, a company that also owns and builds True North powerboats and North Rip sportfishing boats. USWatercraft is a licensed builder for J/Boats and Farr raceboats.
