When Alloy Manufacturing lost the contract to build boats for Alcan, they had a few unfinished boats in their yard. More importantly, they had a business manufacturing aluminum boats and they did not want to quit right then. They took what they knew of the Alcan 370 and came up with a design of their own for a 38′ cruiser. They labeled it the Alloy Sports Patrol 38.
Alloy had additional vision for their products, including some interesting models
Alloy also took the 38 foot house cruiser and came up with some potential variants for other markets.
