Series Production and Semi Custom Designs

Since setting up shop in 1974 the Perry design office is responsible for a long run of successful production boats. Several have become classics and many are highly prized in the used market. The list below contains series production boats designed by the Robert Perry office. The ones in current production contain links to the builders.


The Aloha 26 was launched in 1979 by Ouyang Boat Works in Canada. It is also known as Aloha 27 and 8.2.
