Draco, a Swedish boat manufacturer, is a new brand to this area but has been in the business of boatbuilding since the 1960s. They are known for their clean Scandinavian design and innovation, building boats of superior quality, handling, and seaworthiness. She can seat 6 on settees in the bow, two in bucket seats at the helm and to port, and 4 on the aft bench seats that convert to a sun pad. There is an enclosed head in the port console, a unique anchor system in the bow, bow thruster, and a 300 HP outboard motor to get where you're going! This vessel was recently donated to the Mount Desert Island Community Sailing Center, a non-profit organization in Southwest Harbor, Maine, celebrating 25 years of offering sailing education to children and adults! Funds from the sale will go toward finding a permanent home for the sailing center.

Dramatic fjords. 16,000 miles of coastline. 50,000 islands – no doubt about it, Norway is a maritime marvel. No wonder it’s home to a rich legacy of boat building including Draco, who emerged in the 1960’s with a revolutionary line of speedboats.
In 2014, Draco charted a new course with a range of Scandinavian dual console boats. Same innovative performance as their predecessors, but with careful attention to comfort, camaraderie — and family time. Crafted in collaboration with world-famous designer, Dubois Naval Architects, Draco is proud to offer a new kind of day cruiser with unparalleled modern hulls, high-tech systems integration and retro design not found anywhere else on the horizon.
Have a look—or better yet, come aboard and discover the unequivocal beauty of these retro-style, dual-console boats. After all, you only live once. And, time on the water is most certainly time well spent.
Draco builds the 27 with a vinylester skin coat backed up by alternating layers of hand-laid fiberglass mat and vinylester resin. A couple of noteworthy items are the rubrail that is very substantial. She has a plumb bow with a sharp entry and the bottom has approximately 23 degrees of deadrise at the transom. Six strakes run the full length of the hull and she has a hard chine, plus a raised spray rail. That rail came in handy on a test day that brought steady 15-mph winds with gusts over 20 and steady 2’ chop. When the time came to pull alongside the dock, the optional bow thruster made the task effortless.

The Bow. Open the center section of the windshield and head forward to the bow. There is seating for six on lounges. An acrylic air dam closes off the walkway. The boat also has a deep freeboard from bow to stern. In an impressive display of craftsmanship, the stainless-steel anchor integrates cleanly into a pulpit made of the same material. There’s storage underneath the side lounges in the bow and a panel in the deck provides access to the bow thruster.
The Helm. To starboard, the helm has a tilt steering wheel with an embossed Draco logo. This boat has the 12” Raymarine hybrid touch plotter in the center of the dash with a Mercury Smartcraft screen to starboard. On the left side of the steering wheel are a beverage holder and accessory-switch panel. Opposite, Draco equipped the boat with the Fusion stereo head, Zipwake interceptor panel, Yamaha's ActiveTrim controls and the Windlass button. Below are additional accessory switches. Aft are the digital throttle and shift control with the ignition switches and emergency shutoff lanyard. USB and auxiliary ports are underneath the panel as are the circuit breakers, and there’s an inspection panel for accessing the controls. Outboard on each are glovebox-style lockers.
The Port Console. The captain and a companion travel in bucket seats that have foldup bolsters, swivel, slide fore and aft and can have adjustable height. The port console has a stainless-steel rail wrapped in leather and it opens to reveal a sink and a head in a compartment that has 40" of headroom.
The Cockpit. In the center of the cockpit is a back-to-back lounge that can seat four (two facing forward, two aft) or be laid flat to create a large sun pad. Storage in the base of the center lounge and outboard in the gunwales.
The Bimini Top.
Draco provides a smart solution for storing the Bimini top. Part of the aft deck is hinged and when the top is collapsed, it stows beneath it. When the Bimini top is raised, the frame slides forward on aluminum tracks on each side of the cockpit. Forward and aft straps secure the top when raised. When fully deployed, the Bimini top is 8'3” long and headroom underneath it is 6'4".
The Stern. The easiest way to board the 27 is to step on the twin swim platforms that extend aft past the single outboard. The platforms are 2’ wide by 19” long. Forward, a raised aft deck is 7' wide and 3' deep. A four-step ladder is underneath the starboard platform and it secures in place with a bungee cord. Outboard on each side are caprails and below, heavy-duty 8” cleats are mounted. There are two more sets of the same sized cleats amidships and at the bow. Just ahead and below the starboard deck is a rack to hold the stainless-steel ski tow pylon that threads in place just ahead of the splash well. The well has an inspection hatch for accessing the trim and bilge pumps and wires, cables and hoses are cleanly rigged, running through plastic conduit that links the motor and the transom.
