This 1982 Nor'Sea 27 has been lovingly owned by one couple since the boat was built. By any standards, the Nor'Sea 27 is a remarkable yacht, constructed to a standard that is rare in a cruising boat of this size. With her one-piece, hand-laminated hull, all-lead ballast, top-quality metalwork and remarkable joinery, the Nor'Sea 27 is the ultimate in transportable yachts. This small but rugged pocket cruiser provides live-aboard comfort and can handle heavy weather and long distances while remaining legally trailerable at only 27ft long.
It is said the Nor'sea 27 is one of only a half-dozen American production boats designed and built to spend a lifetime on the ocean, rather than in a marina. Where most boats are built sufficiently strong to avoid warranty claims and Coast guard recall lists, the Nor'sea is built to a different standard. The Nor'Sea hull is hand laminated in one piece--not two halves glued together.The laminations schedule call for a minimum of seven layers of alternating 1 1/2 oz, mat and 18 oz roving on the sides, increasing to nine layers at the waterline, 11 layers at t eh garboard and 22 layers at the stern. Thicknesses vary from 5/16" on the sides to 3/4" at the keel. Chainplate areas are heavily reinforced. This is approximately the same layup schedule as used on much larger "cruising" Boats, i.e Valient 40, Tartan 50.
The lapstrake construction requires approximately 40% more labor hours in layup than a smooth hull. The benefits obtained--much stronger and rigid hull.
