Alerion Express 20

Alerion 20
Sister Ship

We are looking forward to the arrival of an Alerion Express 20 at Irish Boat Shop this spring.   As with all Alerions, this vessel provides an elegant and classic look above the water line with a modern styled bottom below.  With just a main and self-tacking Hoyt boom jib, this boat is perfectly designed for single-handed sailing or day sailing with the family.  This is a trailer-able, stable, keeled boat built for fun, easy sailing and beauty.

New Tubes in the Ship's Stores


The new tubes have arrived in the Ship's Store!  These tubes include the Fat Cat and the Flipside 2 from O'Brien and the Party Island and the Party Chair from Liquid Force.  These are just a couple of the many tubes we have in stock.

Waxing Your Boat


WaxingWaxing your boat is very important.  A good coat of wax prevents hazing, chalking, and fading caused by the sun.  It also makes cleaning your boat easier.  Wax creates a protective layer which keeps dirt, exhaust, bugs, and bird droppings from adhering to the gel coat of your boat. 

If your boat could use some buffing and waxing, please contact our service departments.

Torqeedo Electric Motor



If you have ever wondered about putting an electric motor on your boat, this is the answer.   We are excited to be stocking the new Torqeedo Travel 1003.  This is equivalent to a 3 hp gas outboard.  Weighing in at about 30 lbs with the battery, this motor is perfectly designed for tenders, dinghies, and day sailors up to 2,500 lbs.  This model features a digital tiller display, an integrated GPS, and state of the art efficiency.  It can also be fitted with an optional CIGS Solar Charger to accompany the standard 24-60 V and 100-240 V charging system.  This fully waterproof system also breaks down into three pieces for easy storage.
