Broker's Comments

The Halcyon 27 was designed and built in the classic tradition, with a deep long keel and tough construction, capable of offshore cruising. These yachts are known for their seaworthy cruising capabilities and good performance in all conditions.

This version appears in good condition and has benefited from extensive, recent upgrades to most systems, making this a reliable and updated option for a variety of sailing options. In addition, the owner is pursuing a swift sale and so the boat has been competitively priced, to encourage this.

Altogether, this seriously upgraded, solid, cruising boat, alongwith a tender & outboard and liferaft presents a very good package for safe and serious cruising.

These boat details are subject to contract.

Thank you for your comment. The owner had decided to strengthen the foredeck and bulkheads as an independent upgrade to the boat.
