Alpa Yachts

Founded in 1956 by Danilo Cattadori, Alpa was one of the first builders of fiberglass sailing boats in Europe. Early on the company gained a reputation for it’s high quality fiberglass FLYING DUTCHMAN class boats. The first larger yacht was the ALPA 50, introduced in 1969. Far more successful was the Van de Stadt designed ALPA 6.7. This was followed by the 9.24, 9.5 and 11.5. Other yachts were the Alpa 42, Alpa 38, 19, 21, 27 and 34. Although the Alpa name was resurrected in 1990, the production sailboat operation closed it’s doors in 1978.

Aeroyacht’s New Alpha 42

  • By Herb McCormick
  • Updated: July 30, 2013

alpa 42 sailboat

Alpha 42 Catamaran

Based in Long Island, New York, catamaran dealer, designer, sailor and author Gregor Tarjan is one of the country’s leading experts on multihulls of every size and description. So when we first learned that Tarjan was one of the principals in bringing the new Aeroyacht Alpha 42 into existence, we were interested to see the final result. Well, the semi-custom Alpha 42 was recently launched near the Long Island facility where the boat was built, and everyone involved with the project should be justifiably proud of what they’ve created. The Alpha 42 is an exciting new entry into the fleet of performance cruising cats, and with a base price of $395,000—and eight orders already on the ledger—it appears the new 42-footer may have hit a sweet spot in the marketplace.

alpa 42 sailboat

The Alpha 42 incorporates a lot of interesting features not usually associated with production catamarans, including wave-piercing bows; multi-chine hulls; separate, private entryways for the two aft staterooms; and a choice of either high-performance daggerboards (which draw 6’ 8” when lowered, or just 28” when raised) or fixed, low-aspect mini keels (with a 3’ 6” draft).

Tarjan likes fast boats, and the Alpha 42 looks quick just sitting on a mooring. The boat is entered in this year’s Boat of the Year (BOTY) competition, and we’re really looking forward to taking it for a spin. Some of the speed enhancements include an integrated carbon-fiber bowsprit for off-wind sails, an optional carbon rotating mast and lightweight synthetic rigging. In a further nod to performance, all the heavy stuff like fuel and water tanks, and the batteries, have been centered in the boat to reduce any pitching or inertia. Paul Van Dyke of North Sails, another wizard in the world of state-of-the art cats, designed the sails, including the self-tacking working Solent jib. Did I mention I’m really eager to test the 42?

alpa 42 sailboat

Built to ABYC specifications by Alpha 1 Composites, the Alpha 42’s composite structure incorporates Vinylester resins and a Divinycell foam core in the hulls and superstructure, with a Nidacore honeycomb core in the bulkheads. Saving weight was clearly a priority, and with a light displacement of just over 9 tons, it’s clear the builders succeeded in that goal. The mast is an ICW-friendly 62’ off the water.

There are two different accommodation plans offered, one a charter or family version with a quartet of cabins, all with their own heads, and the other an owner’s version with a full-length master suite in its own dedicated hull. Gregor, we’ll take one of those, please.

This year’s BOTY fleet of cats is one of the strongest in years, with new boats from Gunboat (including the 55, also built on the East Coast, in North Carolina); a pair of new Lagoons (the 39 and 52); a fresh Chris White design constructed in Chile by Alwoplast (the Atlantic 47, with White’s innovative “mast foil” rig); and a full-size Nautitech (the 562). So the Alpha 42 will certainly find stiff competition. Will the boat be a contender?

Stay tuned.

Illegal Chinese boat arrivals walked onto remote Kimberley air base ‘undetected’

A group of Chinese men who arrived illegally by boat on Australia’s remote northwest coast earlier this month walked onto an air base being used by the ADF undetected.

What’s happening on Anzac Day in Australia

A group of Chinese men who arrived illegally by boat on Australia’s remote northwest coast earlier this month walked onto an air base being used in the country’s signature border security operation without being detected, according to a report.

The ABC’s 7.30 on Tuesday night revealed fresh details about the latest illegal boat arrival — understood to be the third to land on Australian soil in under six months — when 15 people were found at the remote Mungalalu-Truscott Airbase in the far north Kimberley region of Western Australia on the afternoon of April 5.

Several of the men entered the unfenced commercial air base undetected and alerted staff, according to the report , raising fresh questions from locals about the lapse in security.

“I think the main thought on everyone’s mind is, ‘How on earth did this happen?’” Matthew Niikkula from the North West Defence Alliance, which represents the seven local governments in the area, told 7.30 .

“If a random boat can arrive and people into an air base, what else is happening in the north? The most vulnerable coastline we have is along the north, so this shows that we need to see a focus of key assets, key infrastructure and a lot more of a defence presence.”

In December, the Australian Defence Force (ADF) began using the air base “in support of Operation Sovereign Borders” as a staging ground for unmanned military drones patrolling the coast.

The Chinese nationals were flown to an offshore detention centre in Nauru shortly after they arrived.

One of the men claimed they were economic migrants, according to 7.30 , which said there was no suggestion they had any malicious intent entering the air base.

Madeline Gallagher-Dann from the Kalumburu Aboriginal community, the nearest settlement 35 kilometres southeast of the air base and home to about 400 people, said it was “pretty scary thinking they got this far and made it to land not far from us”.

“[Border protection] could definitely be done a bit better because we’re vulnerable — we’re open and there is no patrols on this side,” she told 7.30 .

The Australian Border Force (ABF) said in a statement it was “adequately resourced and prepared” to respond to security threats.

“A combination of Australian Defence Force and ABF aerial and maritime assets are always postured to detect and intercept maritime people smuggling ventures in Australia’s key maritime threat corridors,” read the statement to 7.30 .

“In 2023-24, additional assets were deployed to support the posture. The ABF does not go into specifics about capability assessments and requirements, other than to say that we are adequately resourced and prepared to address … maritime security threats.”

2GB host Ben Fordham said the revelations were “extremely concerning”.

“It’s border failure, that’s what it is,” he told listeners on Thursday.

“We’ve had boats dropping people off like they’re Uber passengers, and now we have this Chinese delivery, and they don’t seem to fear Operation Sovereign Borders under Anthony Albanese.”

The ABF has been contacted for further comment.

In February, a boat carrying two groups of 39 Pakistani and Bangladeshi foreign nationals were found on the Dampier Peninsula north of Broome.

In November last year, another group of 12 illegal arrivals slipped past naval border forces and reached the Truscott-Mungalalu Airbase.

In both incidents, they were intercepted by the ABF, and taken to Nauru.

There has also been a large increase in the number of illegal foreign fishing boats intercepted by the ABF off the Kimberley coast in recent months.

Following the April 5 incident, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said that he had sent a “very clear message” that illegal boat arrivals would not be accepted into Australia.

“We have a very large coastline,” he told reporters.

“What is clear, though, is that people who are unauthorised arrivals will not be settled in Australia. Operation Sovereign Borders principles will apply as they have been in this case.”

But Opposition Home Affairs spokesman James Paterson described the situation as a “failure” and claimed the arrival would incentivise people smugglers to attempt to enter Australia.

“Aerial surveillance hours under this government’s watch have dropped 20 per cent, maritime patrol days have dropped 12 per cent, and the result of that is people are getting through, they are getting onshore, and our border protection regime is being undermined,” he said.

“It’s no surprise that people smugglers are testing [the government’s] will.”

There has also been an increase in illegal fishing boats. Picture: ABC

Senator Paterson told ABC News that Labor’s abolition of temporary protection visas provided an incentive for people to “get on boats and come here”.

“The abolition of that visa by this government has sent the wrong message to people smugglers and would-be asylum seekers, and regretfully appears to have encouraged them to get on boats again and the reason why that’s such a problem is we know last time, that cost at least 1200 lives at sea,” he said.

“We don’t want to see that happen again. We don’t want to see people drowning on unseaworthy vessels on the way to Australia … we’re about to see that again.”

Labor abolished the TPV and the Safe Haven Enterprise Visas in February 2023, opening up a path to permanency for thousands of refugees who arrived prior to Operation Sovereign Borders’ establishment in 2013.

Senator Paterson said he was “very concerned” that the government appeared to be slashing the border force budget, instead of increasing it.

The government has routinely denied the claim, with Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek spruiking the $500 million extra given to Operation Sovereign Borders under Labor.

“Of course, we don’t like to see boats arrive and these people have been dealt with immediately,” she told Channel 7 earlier this month.

“It sends a strong message to smugglers who might consider sending people on this terrible, dangerous journey. The commander of Operation Sovereign Borders has made it clear that nothing has changed [with the border policy] … that the settings are as strong as ever, and they have got the extra budget now.”

Moscow concert attack: More than 60 reported dead; ISIS claims responsibility

This live blog has ended. For the most recent updates, please click here .

What we know about the Moscow concert attack

  • Men in camouflage broke into a Moscow concert hall and opened fire, shooting an unknown number of people, Russia’s prosecutor general said.
  • The terror group ISIS has claimed responsibility but did not provide proof of the claim, which was made on ISIS-affiliated news agency Amaq on Telegram.
  • Russia's Investigative Committee said that more than 60 people are dead after the attack at Crocus City Hall. Officials have said more than 100 others were injured.
  • A fire also started inside Crocus City Hall, a large concert venue northwest of central Moscow. Firefighters have evacuated about 100 people from the basement of the building and efforts are underway to rescue people from the roof, Russian emergency officials said.
  • Russia officials said they were investigating the attack as a terrorist act.
  • A popular rock band was scheduled to play what appeared to be a sold-out show at the venue, which has a maximum capacity of more than 9,000 people.

Three children among those killed, state media reports

Three children were among the more than 60 people killed in yesterday's attack at Crocus City Hall, Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported, citing the Russian Ministry of Health.

Officials have warned that the death toll connected to the deadly incident may increase as the investigation continues.

Xi sends condolences to Putin

Chinese President Xi Jinping sent condolences to Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday after a deadly shooting at a concert hall near Moscow, saying China opposes all forms of terrorism and strongly condemns terrorist attacks.

China firmly supports the Russian government’s efforts to maintain national security and stability, Xi said, according to CCTV state television. 

Moscow bloodshed comes two decades after some of worst attacks in Russia

alpa 42 sailboat

Phil Helsel

The shooting attacks in Moscow are the latest in a series of deadly terror attacks in the country since the 2000s.

In 2004, militants from Chechnya and elsewhere took hostages at a school in Beslan in southern Russia.

The militants demanded a withdrawal from Chechnya. Hostages were kept in a gymnasium, and 334 died — half of them children — when gunfire and explosions erupted when it was stormed. Hostages’ families were critical of the rescue operation. Russian prosecutors later cleared authorities .

Two years prior, in 2002, Chechen separatists attacked the Dubrovka Theater in Moscow and took more than 700 people hostage. Russian forces used gas, and 129 hostages died. The attackers were killed.

More recently, in 2017 a suicide bomber from Kyrgyzstan killed 15 people as well as himself in an attack on a St. Petersburg subway. In 2013, two bombers killed a combined 34 people in attacks on a railway station and a trolleybus in Volgograd.

The group Islamic State, also known as ISIS, claimed responsibility for the attacks Friday at the Crocus City Hall venue.

Putin wishes victims well, deputy prime minister says

President Vladimir Putin is thinking of those injured in today’s attack and thanked doctors, a Russian government official said according to state media.

State media TASS reported that “Putin wished all those injured in the emergency at Crocus City Hall to recover and conveyed his gratitude to the doctors, Golikova said,” referring to Tatiana Golikova deputy prime minister for social policy, labor, health and pension provision.

More than 60 dead, and death toll could grow, Russian agency says

Russia’s Investigative Committee said Saturday that more than 60 people have died in the attack, and warned the number may increase.

smoke fire terror attack

“The bodies of the dead are being examined. It has been previously established that more than 60 people died as a result of the terrorist attack. Unfortunately, the number of victims may increase,” according to the Investigative Committee, which is a federal state agency.

Russia's Ministry of Internal Affairs and the security agency FSB are continuing to investigate, the committee said in a statement, and weapons and ammunition have been found.

U.S. warned Russia about planned terrorist attack in Moscow, NSC says

alpa 42 sailboat

Monica Alba

The United States shared information about a potential terrorist attack in Moscow with Russia’s government earlier this month, a spokesperson for the National Security Council said.

The U.S. Embassy in Russia on March 7 warned U.S. citizens to avoid crowds and said it was monitoring reports that extremists might attack large gatherings in Moscow.

“Earlier this month, the U.S. Government had information about a planned terrorist attack in Moscow — potentially targeting large gatherings, to include concerts — which prompted the State Department to issue a public advisory to Americans in Russia,” NSC spokesperson Adrienne Watson said.

“The U.S. Government also shared this information with Russian authorities in accordance with its longstanding ‘duty to warn’ policy,” Watson said.

Putin recently dismissed ‘provocative’ warning about potential attacks

In remarks that aired three days ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin accused the West of “provocative statements” about potential terror attacks in Russia, and dismissed them.

Putin Russian Election Moscow

“I’ll remind you of recent, let’s say directly, provocative statements of certain official Western structures about potential terror attacks in Russia,” Putin said.

“All of this looks like obvious blackmail and an attempt to intimidate, destabilize our country,” he said before the state security agency FSB.

Putin in those remarks did not specify a country or warning. The U.S. embassy in Russia on March 7 warned U.S. citizens to avoid crowds .

“The Embassy is monitoring reports that extremists have imminent plans to target large gatherings in Moscow, to include concerts, and U.S. citizens should be advised to avoid large gatherings over the next 48 hours,” the U.S. embassy warned.

Guards at concert hall didn't have guns, state news says

The Associated Press

Guards at the concert hall didn’t have guns, and some could have been killed at the start of the attack, Russian media reported.

Some Russian news outlets suggested the assailants fled before special forces and riot police arrived.

Reports said police patrols were looking for several vehicles the attackers could have used to escape.

U.S. had been gathering intelligence that ISIS could attack Russia

alpa 42 sailboat

Ken Dilanian

The U.S. had been gathering intelligence for months that ISIS could mount a mass casualty attack in Russia, two U.S. officials confirmed to NBC News.

That information led to a March 7 warning issued by the U.S. embassy in Russia about possible extremist attacks, including at concerts, urging people to stay away from large gatherings, one of the officials said.

That official said the claim of responsibility today by ISIS appears to be genuine, though no final assessment had been made about who was responsible.

Some Moscow concertgoers filmed events as they unfolded Friday night, when gunmen opened fire inside a theater and people ran to take cover in fear for their lives.

Witness says gunfire was first thought to be construction noise

A witness to today’s armed attack on Moscow’s Crocus City Hall told a state news agency that they first mistook the gunfire for sounds of an installation being dismantled.

“First, we started hearing typical loud pops, but it was impossible to understand that they were gunshots. We thought that something was falling, as exhibitions were being dismantled at that moment, and someone seemed to be dropping something large,” Mikhail Semyonov told TASS .

“Then, the bangs were getting more and more frequent. Suddenly, there was a scream, and the bangs started to be heard as bursts. Then it became clear that it was shooting,” he said.

ISIS claims responsibility for attack but does not provide proof

The terror group Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack in Moscow.

The group, also known as ISIS, did not provide any proof of its claim, which came from ISIS-affiliated news agency Amaq on Telegram.

The group’s members have carried out a number of terror attacks, including the 2015 attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

Children among the victims, Russia's children commissioner says

Yuliya Talmazan

Russia’s commissioner for children’s rights, Maria Lvova-Belova, said children were among the victims of tonight's attack.

"Information about their condition is regularly updated," Lvova-Belova said on Telegram. "Any additional assistance will be provided immediately."

She later told Russia 24 TV channel that at least two children had been injured, including one boy with a gunshot wound.

Earlier, Russian officials released a preliminary casualty toll of at least 40 people dead and more than 100 injured.

France, U.K., Germany condemn attack

Officials from France, the U.K. and Germany were among those who expressed their condolences to the victims of the attack at the Crocus concert hall.

"The images of the terrible attack on innocent people in Crocus City Hall near #Moscow are horrific," Germany's Foreign Office said on X . "The background must be investigated quickly. Our deepest condolences with the families of the victims."

"We condemn the terrorist attack in the Crocus City Hall near Moscow," the U.K.'s embassy in Russia said . "This is a terrible tragedy."

Meanwhile, France's foreign ministry called for "full light" to be shed on "these heinous acts."

Public events across Russia called off after attack

Several regional leaders across Russia, including in the annexed Kherson region of Ukraine, have canceled public events this weekend over security considerations after the deadly concert attack in Moscow.

Shortly after the attack, Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin canceled all sports, cultural and other public events in Moscow this weekend. State news agency TASS also quoted Russia's cultural ministry as saying that mass and entertainment events in federal cultural institutions have been canceled in the coming days.

Zelenskyy adviser speaks out about attack

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s adviser denied that Ukraine was involved in the deadly Crocus concert hall attack.

“Ukraine certainly has nothing to do with the shooting/explosions in the Crocus City Hall (Moscow Region, Russia),” Mykhailo Podolyak wrote on X. “It makes no sense whatsoever.”

No evidence has emerged to suggest Ukraine may have been involved, but Ukrainian officials may be trying to pre-empt accusations, as some Kremlin hawks have already started pointing at Kyiv. 

Asked whether the shooting was at all tied to the war in Ukraine, U.S. National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby said: “There is no indication at this time that Ukraine, or Ukrainians, were involved in the shooting, but again, this just broke. We’re taking a look at it, but I would disabuse you at this early hour have any connection to Ukraine.”

Videos posted to social media appear to show chaos inside Moscow's Crocus City Hall during and after a terrorist attack.

Some videos include what sound like gunshots and show men with rifles, as concertgoers frantically try to exit the venue.

State Department issues warning to Americans in Moscow

Jason Abbruzzese

The State Department said that the U.S. Embassy in Moscow is aware of the terrorist attack on Crocus City Hall and that U.S. citizens should avoid the area and follow the instructions of local authorities.

"The U.S. government’s ability to provide routine or emergency services to U.S. citizens in Russia is severely limited, particularly in areas far from the U.S. embassy in Moscow, due to Russian government limitations on travel for U.S. embassy personnel and staffing, and the ongoing suspension of operations, including consular services, at U.S. consulates in Russia," the State Department said in a message posted to its website .

'What a nightmare in Crocus,' Widow of opposition leader Alexei Navalny condolences about concert attack

Yulia Navalnaya, the widow of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny who died in prison last month, expressed her condolences about the attack Friday.

"What a nightmare in Crocus," Navalnaya wrote on X. "Condolences to the families of the victims and quick recovery to the injured. Everyone involved in this crime must be found and held accountable."

320 firefighters, 3 helicopters working to put out fire

Russia's Ministry of Emergency Situations said the number of rescue crews responding to the attack is growing and now includes more than 320 firefighters, 130 emergency vehicles and three helicopters dumping water on the burning concert venue.

Moscow regional governor says 40 dead, more than 100 injured

Moscow Regional Governor Andrei Vorobyov said on Telegram that at least 40 people are dead and more than 100 injured in the terrorist attack, confirming figures previously reported by Russian state news.

Putin informed about concert venue attack 'in the first minutes,' Kremlin spokesperson says

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said President Vladimir Putin was informed about the shooting at the Crocus concert hall "in the first minutes" of the attack, Russian state news agency RIA reported.

The president is receiving information about what is happening and the measures being taken through all relevant services and is giving necessary instructions, Peskov said according to RIA.

Russian journalist was inside concert venue when gunmen entered

Russian news agency RIA Novosti said on Telegram that one of its reporters was inside the venue when gunmen entered and began shooting concertgoers.

The journalist said that at least three unmasked gunmen in camouflage entered the hall a few minutes before 8 p.m. Moscow time. They shot people point-blank and threw incendiary bombs, according to the journalist.

Russia's foreign ministry spokesperson calls incident 'bloody terrorist attack'

Maria Zakharova, spokesperson for Russia's foreign ministry, called the Friday night incident at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow a "bloody terrorist attack" as she called for "strong condemnation" from the international community.

"Now, as the Russian authorities have stated, all efforts are being devoted to saving people," Zakharova said. "The entire world community is obliged to condemn this monstrous crime!"

U.S. national security spokesperson says embassy has told Americans to avoid large gatherings in Moscow

Kyla Guilfoil
