Hmmm, galley slave vacation. Might require some creative marketing! A fat camp perhaps?

Re: Alpha 42 Designer's Rebuttal

There is no longer any info at the Aeroyacht website related to the Alpha 42. Are they no longer offering this catamaran for sale?

I guess the poster was asking if anyone here had better info than Google.

Re: Alpha 42 Designer's Rebuttal

Sailorman, that could be the Alpha theme song. Gotta love that Aussie sense of humor. The skipper is from Sydney. His sense of humor re the Alpha is wearing a bit thin. In general Jim Jeffries helps. One of these days I'll post the whole Alpha story.
