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

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.
