Watkins 27, 1983

If you have been searching for a capable pocket cruiser that's proven, has the equipment that is necessary, is trailerable and has a nice galvanized trailer, you have found her. This 1983 Watkins 27 is now available after her owner completed the ICW cruising that he prepared her. Her asking price is only a small percentage of what the owner invested to make sure that not only was the boat capable of safely completing the journey that he planned but also so that she had the gear and equipment necessary.

    Spares

  • Manufacturer's Description
  • The Watkins 27' thinks she's a 30' sloop. What an incredible ego!
  • Its what you might expect from a big, roomy cruising boat rigged out to make her a really great performer.
  • Above and below decks, the Watkins 27 has more standard equipment going for you than you'd expect: A skeg mounted rudder and prop shaft with a 3-bladed prop that really digs in. A fuel capacity large enough to take you approximately 400 miles non-stop. A fully pressured 40-gallon water system. 12-Volt Batteries with switches and spares.
  • Full standing room below - even if you're 6'2"
  • You'll be amazed at the spacious, brightly lit living quarters, all functionally designed to cruise a family of 5 for days of blissful comfort. The easy accessible forward hatch leaks to an L-shaped galley with a handy bulkhead mounted dropleaf table. There are sliding cabinets and plush cushions and a stand-up head with room to shower.
  • Sailability? The Watkins 27 is a sure handler with a broad 10' beam and 23'8" L.W.L. At a hefty 7,500 lbs. , she offers incredible ballast ration of 46%! But her real ego stems from the construction quality that's built in: A fully insulated hull liner - a deep, workable bilge - open turn buckles - shore power - bow pulpit - lifelines - stanchions - snatch block toe rail - mooring cleats - handrails fore and aft - cockpit ice chest - sail locker - hanging locker - topping lift - genoa winches... and a full 347 square feet of sail.
