  • In the 1940s, Alex Byran and Cortlandt Heyniger created the Alcort company (named from the first syllables of their given names).

    Alcort's first sailboat was the Sailfish. Introduced in 1945 according to The Sunfish Bible by Will White, it was similar to a large wooden surfboard with a sail, a rudder and a daggerboard. It was available in either finished or kit form.

    With no cockpit to put your feet in, sailors often fell off. Discontinued in 1975.
