ALERRE, Swan 61


"Alerre" was purchased by her current owner four years ago in Europe and was delivered to JBY to maintain and upgrade her to the highest yacht standards.

Last fall JBY's mechanical and fiberglass departments worked in tandem to install a new style bow thruster, which completely opened up her forepeak. New joinery was fitted and varnished to her owner's specifications. Alerre spends the summers in the JBY mooring field, and winters in the Caribbean.

Her rod rigging has been replaced during some down time while the mast & boom were being painted with Awlgrip.
