NEW PRICE ! ! !
Always a freshwater boat this J 27 will save you $'s compared to saltwater versions of this excellent club racer/ superior daysailor. No salt corrosion at all.
We started out in August at 12,500.00 and after getting acquainted with this boat with her long comings and current cosmetics we have reduced the price to 9,888.00. Get close and you will own this J 27 complete with the "fast" newer sails. She is fundamentally sound but does have a couple of spots in the deck that will eventually need some attention.
If the Navy hull gets buffed out and the wood trim refinished and oiled and the interior gets a good scrubbing, you will have not just a decent looking J 27, but a lovely J 27.
With a 126 to 120 phrf # and very capable of performing at a number much lower than this rating, particular she is a yacht in hot pursuit of most regattas and many a club trophy. By the same token, if only used for day sailing she will give you hours and hours of pleasure with her beautifully balanced helm. Worth stating that in lake sailing and flat water her actual sailing performance is tremendously ahead of her rating - - hard not to win with this excellent design. First to finish is always FUN ! !
She is an incredible boat shown at an incredible value. If made today she would easily go for the plus side of 90,000, so for 9,880 she is a real value.
Equipped with 2 North mainsails, 3 spinnakers, a 155% and a #3 headsail she includes a 2 hp NISSAN Long Shaft outboard and a very fast VC 17 underbody.
Borrow a trailer or have us deliver her to you, but come get this lovely J 27 before someone else does !!
