The very workable cockpit plus an easy foredeck to work makes the C-27 a real pleasure to sail.

With the addition of the spinnaker and gear, you can enjoy some racing. With the large number of C-27's around you may be able to do some class racing.

Broker's Comments

What can I say? The Catalina 27 model has been around for a long time in large numbers and is well-known to almost every boater. Its auxiliary power is an outboard so maintance is easy and a change of spark plugs every year is usually all you will need. The C-27 sails well in light or heavy weather and the accommodations are very comfortable. There's enough room to cook a good evening meal in the galley and then sit around talking about your great day of sailing .
