I usually write an extended paragraph on the care, condition and quality of my listings.  Suffice to say this is a beautifully cared for 1981 Pacific Seacraft 27.  The photos tell the story. 

If you appreciate classic lines and want to enjoy a practical cruising sailboat you need to own this sailboat. Her design and robust construction provide the special kind of performance and accommodations that the cruising life demands.  She has a kindly motion at sea and is well balanced under sail.  She has a traditional wineglass shaped mid-section, well known for producing a gentle motion and is capable of providing stability required for comfortable cruising. Balance is that coveted but elusive quality that makes a boat responsive.  She benefits from a full keel with cut-away forefoot and a well distributed beam that result in a yacht of exceptional balance, responsiveness and speed. She is a solid cruiser in very good, sail away condition.

 A classic cutter designed by Henry Mohrschladt and built for Bluewater passage making.
