About this Sailboat:
Completely Restored 1982 Catalina C-27
Renovated Inboard Diesel with brand new fuel system! Shoal Draft (3’6″) winged keel version Standard Rig (not tall) Wheel Steering Dinette Layout Just hauled. bottom painted, topsides buffed out, new white and shiny now.
All teak is beautifully oiled with 6-7 coats of oil. You have to see her to believe it. All pictures were taken before I spent thousands and thousands of dollars at the boat yard. I’ve over $15000 invested in her in the past year… … If you are moving from Seattle to NYC, I’d love to trade boats or cooperate on boat transport with you. Feel free to call with any idea. I live near Seattle now.
Equipment on Board:
11 HP Inboard Universal Diesel
This is a very thrifty small diesel, easy to work on and very reliable. Drives the boat to hull speed in a chop very easily.
John Vigor said it in his review:
” Later boats had two cylinder Universal diesels. If I could find a 27 with one of these, especially if it had low hours, I’d jump on it!”
Edson Wheel Steering

The yard has repaired this, when you moved the transmission from forward to reverse the throttle would follow, making quick docking manuevers problematic unless you used two hands. Now it’s all fixed.
