1986 Alsberg Brothers Express 37

Alameda, California

$55,900

Golden Moon is the winningest Express 37 on the planet. The concept for the Express 37 was developed in 1984 by Carl Schumacher and boat builder Terry Alsberg of Alsberg Brothers Boatworks in Santa Cruz. When Schumacher penned the Express 37, his objective was to design a boat that would excel on long ocean races, that was easy and safe to sail short-handed, and would have at least 6' of standing headroom. The first boats built by Alsberg Brother Boatworks finished 1, 2 and 3 in the 1985 TransPac, an ocean race held on the West Coast. There were eventually 65 built and these boats continue to compile an enviable record.

Golden Moon is a great example of a well-loved and equipped Express 37. Come see her on our docks in Alameda today!
