The Express 27 is an ultra-light displacement sloop designed by Carl Schumacher. It was built by Terry Alsberg at Alsberg Brothers Boatworks in Santa Cruz, California from 1981 to 1988. As of 2016, approximately 25% of the boats built in California are still raced competitively in the San Francisco Bay. The fleet continues to own the original molds of the boats.
