Alsberg Express 34

Does any one have any experience with this boat? I intend to buy one. I know that there is a 27 and 37 Express model. Any related experiences with Alsberg built boats would be helpful. Thank you.

I worked for Alsberg in Santa Cruz in ''83. I built the plug and mold for the 37, and was there for the first few that went out the door and I can tell you it really is a great boat. We went to great lengths to make the hull as fair as possible. If you look at the hull with the light glancing off it just so, you will see no ripples or high/low spots, as in many other "lesser craft". It is a well built ultra-light that will most definetly give you some thrills in heavy air. If you are a good sailor you won''t be disapointed.

With regard to the non skid on the express 37, I don''t have one but found a place that sells molds for spot repairs with about 20 different male/female molds avaialble. Contact Gibco Flex Mold at 6657 E. Peden Rd, Ft. Worth Texas 76179 Phone 817 236 5021. These patterns should do thetrick.

Express 34

I worked at Alsberg Bros and helped tool the Express 34. I also delivered the first 34 to the boat show in Bridgeport CT.
Only a handful were built as far as I know but they are solid boats of Schumaker design. Had the luxury tax of the 80's not finished off the builders of Santa Cruz, I am sure that there would be many more to choose from.

Hamorx-

You really shouldn't be reviving threads that have been dead for over six years.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

[QUOTE=hamorx;152177] I currently own an Express 34, which I have had for 15 years. I may be selling to get a more family friendly/cruising catamaran. Have to say they have been 15 great years. Thoroughly enjoyed the boat, and part of me will be very sad to say goodbye (although looking forward to new memories in new boat). I have raced on the boat and cruised coastal New England (Sag Harbor, LI to Nantucket, MA and many points in between). The boat is excellent in light to medium air. Not best choice for heavy winds - though handled some gale force squalls I encountered sailing it up from Annapolis to Sag Harbor very nicely.

Hmmm... I live on the west coast, so this may not be very practical, but in what condition is your Express 34, and how much will you be asking? You can email me directly at mcclellandorama at gmail dot com.

Thanks
