Broker's Comments

The Parker 27 is a modified version of the Super Seal 26 which was originally designed by Ron Holland from whom the mould was sold to Parker Yachts (Poole). It is a fast, small lift keel cruiser racer that has excellent sailing performance (particularly upwind), and the ability to use a drying mooring.
The Keel box of the Parker 27 is at the centre of the saloon, but the yacht still manages to boast 5 berths, head and galley.
This particular example is one of the later ones from the Parker yard, and comes with many extra sails and a fully galvanized cradle. There is also an inflatable dinghy and outboard available by separate negotiation.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Parker 27 Lifting Keel has been personally photographed and viewed by Barry Stevens of Boatshed Torquay. Click here for contact details.
