This 1972 C&C 27 was one of the best production boats ever built! This was the yacht that set C&C Yachts on the road to becoming a world leader in fiberglass sailboats. Of all the designs produced by C&C, the 27 was by far their most successful. There were many reasons for her success. Perhaps it's her outstanding sailing ability, her roominess and comfort as a cruiser, or the quality of her construction. Or maybe it's simply that, for so many sailors, she's the perfect sized yacht. Whatever the reasons, with nearly 1,000 hulls produced, the C&C 27 remains that classic Canadian yardstick, against which successive competitors are still being measured. Seller has made a lot of recent upgrades is relocating and motivated to sell! This is a well kept, fresh water boat that has seen short summer seasons and has always been winter stored indoors.
Seller is owner #5 and has owned the boat since 2009. Boat was originally delivered at Irish Boat Shop in Harbor Springs, Irish sold it to the current owner and she's always been a Harbor Springs boat. Boat was launched and rigged by Memorial day and hauled by Labor Day its entire life. Always fresh water, in the water for short summer seasons, and winter stored inside attribute to the condition of this vessel.
As you descend through the main companionway, you'd swear she's a much bigger yacht. The 27 has all the creature comforts. The galley is both to port and starboard. This layout makes for plenty of counter space. The stainless sink and stove are to starboard, and a large icebox is to port under the counter. Lockers, drawers, shelves and storage space abound. The roomy main saloon offers standing headroom. To port the dinette seats four, and at night the table drops down to form a large single berth. A six-foot-plus single settee berth is to starboard. The head is forward and to port, with a large, open hanging locker opposite. A full length door seperates the head from the saloon. The spacious V-berth will comfortably sleep two adults, and there is a folding door to close this area off from the head.
The C&C 27 has all the C&C hallmarks: a springy sheer, attractive bow profile and a well integrated cabin trunk. She also enjoys a generous beam, reasonably high topsides, short overhangs, and a wide transom. Her keel is vintage C&C, with a sharply swept back leading edge. The Mark I has the scimitar-shaped rudder, which is long in the chord and shallow in depth. The foredeck is spacious, with the mast set well back. The raised coach roof comes up at a low angle from the high, cambered deck. Sloping side decks are of reasonable width, running out at the cockpit coamings, and the cockpit is big enough to handle a post-race victory party. The overall feeling from the deck is of a comfortable, well portioned sailing yacht.
