Manufacturer Provided Description

The new trend to elegant day sailers was pioneered by the notable beauty of this Carl Schumacher design, which sailors instinctively pause to admire. Quality produced by Pearson Composites, utilizing the SCRIMP system of resin infusion by vacuum, the AE 28 also delivers outstanding performance under sail, and is specifically designed to be easily single handed. With a fin keel and spade rudder providing exceptional maneuverability and stability, the Hoyt Jib Boom bringing off wind speed, and a 12 Volvo Diesel Sail Drive adding reliable power, this beautifully balanced boat sets the standard for the ideal day sailer.
