The CS 27 is a Canadian built pocket cruiser designed by Raymond Wall and built by CS Yachts (Formerly named Canadian Sailcraft) in Brampton, Ontario.
With a length of twenty-seven feet and a displacement topping 6000 pounds, the CS-27 has more in common with 30 footers than the outboard powered boats in the 25 to 26 foot range. It is a fast boat with real adult size room below decks, and it comes with an inboard diesel, double lifelines, two speed winches, a pressurized fresh water system, and a huge 5.8 cubic foot ice box. Tearaway also features a separate 12 volt fridge/freezer (2018). The CS 27 is a sleek boat that was built strong enough for some serious ocean sailing and CS-27s have won races to Bermuda and back in their class.
The CS 27 was built from 1975-1983 with a total of 480 hulls completed. Tearaway is hull # 157.
In 1977 an increased area rudder with 2 in (5.1 cm) more added to the leading edge for better helm balance was introduced and this new rudder design could be retrofitted to older boats. Tearaway is outfitted with the increased rudder design.
In 1980 the mast was changed from a Proctor to an Isomat section along with small interior improvements, the fibreglass cabin sole was replaced with teak and holly, and cupboard doors were finished with woven cane fronts. The Yanmar YSE was replaced with the 1GM as standard equipment. Tearaway is of this vintage and features all of the upgrades listed above.
Tearaway also features a meticulously finished teak strip headliner that was customized by her previous owner who was a carpenter. Perhaps her most charming feature is a customized companionway door reminiscent of a submarine hatch or navy ship door accompanied by a custom pilot lookout.
Tearaway is a USCG Documented Vessel.
Tearaway recently underwent a major refit and features the following maintenance and upgrades:
