Broker's Comments

The Danish LM27 has long been probably the world’s most successful small wheelhouse sailing cruiser, with over 1,500 built since her first introduction in 1975.

For such a small motor-sailer, with bluff bow and long shallow keel, her sailing performance has been reported as being remarkably good.

I first saw an LM27 at the Earls Court Boat show back in the mid 1970's and remember then thinking what a huge amount of space was on offer for only a 27' boat. Even by today's standards she still provides very spacious comfortable accommodation with absolutely acres of storage.

No doubt a very capable cruiser for all seasons.
