What model sailboat is this?

Seen in Falmouth, MA harbor. Anyone know what model boat this is, and can tell me about it? I like the look.

I'm a newbie here, so I can't post links yet. See pic at:

pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1620/996154/8804017/277274028

just add http colon slash slash before the url, and .jpg to the end of the URL, or maybe someone else here with 10+ posts can show the pic.
Thanks

Looks like an Alerion 28, with a roller furler instead of the typical self-tending jib boom.

Here's Garry Hoyt (naval architect of the boat) sailing one outside of my marina:

They are very nice boats. They are beautiful, sail very well and the more common self-tacking jib makes them a breeze to single hand. If money is no object, they are probably at the top of the list for daysailers. I think there's a 33 and a 38 as well.

There is a boat almost identical to that in the mooring field where we have Second Wind. I assumed it was an Alerion too, until I saw them raise their sails - the sail had a big "B" insignia, identical to our Beneteau (but without the "361")! Being curious, I dinghy'ed closer one day to take a peek - there is nothing else with a Beneteau logo, so maybe they are using the sail off another boat? Very strange...

I ferried one of those from Oxford, MD over to the Western Shore, a full day's sail in light and variable air. Even in those conditions, that boat moved. Don't know where it got the wind from, it was like magic.
