1978 Sun Yachts Sun 27

5 October, 2011 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:


The Sun 27 is a design from eminent designer Robert Perry and built by Sun Yachts. It is a fast comfortable cruising boat that comfortably sleeps 5 on two doubles and a quarter berth. The boat has a comfortable v-berth that sleeps two adults and a fold-out settee that becomes a very comfortable double as well. Galley includes an origo 2 burner stove and an icebox in addition to multiple drawers and cabinets for storage. The interior of the boat is teak with varnish and currently has decko dots flooring. Spacious cockpit locker gives easy access to storage and mechanical space. The locker can easily hold a 4-6 person dinghy as well as a pair of folding bikes, extra water, etc. The separate enclosed head has a new raritan phc head as well as a vanity, sink(currently not hooked up) and more storage space. Across from the head compartment is a navigation table with hanging locker and drawers below. Opening overhead hatch forward and 5 opening portlights mean great ventilation.

This boat is ready to go cruising and is in active use. It is not a project boat. My only planned project for next winter is/was to sand and add another coat of interior varnish.

Make me an offer! Boat available for afternoon test sails for $150 nonrefundable deposit toward purchase. Please pardon the mess in the pictures as they were taken following a short cruise to the vineyard. First picture is from brochure.

mooring may be available to buyer
