Broker's Comments

The MGC 27 is a fast cruiser with a great reputation for sailing performance as well as ease of handling. They were originally sold as Contessa 27’s but when MG purchased the moulds from Jeremy Rodgers in the mid 80's they renamed it the MGC27. Northshore later took over MG Yachts and were the builders of this particular boat. A great opportunity to get out racing round the cans with a little bit of comfort or a lovely little pocket cruiser. I would say her condition is average of this type.
