Alacrity 19 in Practical Boat Owner (No 562 July 2013)
In 1960, Hurley Marine followed the bilge-keel route and started selling the Alacrity 19 (also marked by Russel Marine), This attractive little yacht started off as a cold moulded plywood 18-footer, but then grow one foot and ‘went plastic’. Its twin keels draw 1ft 10in and produce a 32% ballast ratio of 19, this means a respectable level of performance for a twin-keeler, and a simple three-berth cabin makes her an excellent little weekender. If you are consider a GRP Silhouette, don’t forget to give the Alacrity a look.
