Below is from the Manufactures website, this Broker could not say it better....

Sailboats are by nature graceful, and many claim to please your eye. But the Alerion Express 28 is consistently recognized as one of the prettiest boats on the water. That she also has a thoroughly modern underwater shape simply adds to her luster.

A maximized cockpit and cabin makes the Alerion Express 28 the perfect cruising yacht for you and your spouse for weekend adventures or just a spur of the moment evening or after work sail.

By preserving the traditional look topside, where it shows, and giving the hull a modern design below the waterline, the Alerion Express 28 offers the best of both worlds: great style and great performance along with the pride and admiration they bring.

A very manageable sailplan with a self-tacking jib boom is easily single-handed. And even the most die-hard racers speak of how beautifully balanced and delightful the Alerion Express 28 is to sail.

With more than 450 boats sailing worldwide, the Alerion Express 28 is by far the most popular of all the modern daysailers. Designed in 1990 by Carl Schumacher, the AE28 was the first model to start this trend.....

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. We have a 15 minute DVD that amply demonstrates that advantage. With a fin keel and spade rudder providing exceptional maneuverability and stability, the Hoyt Jib Boom bringing off wind speed, and a 14-hp Yanmar Diesel Sail Drive adding reliable power, this beautifully balanced boat sets the standard for the ideal day sailer.
