Hunter 27, 1980,

  • Carrabelle, Florida
  • designed by John Cherubini

    This is the shoal-draft version with a LOA 27.2', LWL 22.0', beam 9.25', draft 3.25', and a displacement of 7,200 lbs, of which 3,200 lb is the external lead keel. It has wheel steering. The boat is currently in the water in Carrabelle, FL, is regularly sailed and maintained (including all exterior teak brightwork), and I would be delighted to take anyone interested in the boat out sailing (weather permitting); please call Simon if you have questions and to make an appointment to view the boat.

    Engine: 2003 Yanmar 1GM10 diesel with 300 hours, professionally maintained by Jim Polson of Jim's Mobile repair (Crawfordville). An over-sized Racor fuel filter is installed between the 12 gallon fuel tank and the engine fuel filter. There is a raw (cooling)-water filter installed.

    Under the water: Bottom job completed January 2012 with two coats of Pettit Trinidad SR everywhere, three on the keel, rudder, the waterline, and other high-wear areas; running gear and through hulls were painted with Pettit Zinc Coat Barnacle Barrier. Prop-shaft zincs are actively maintained (I am a diver).


  • Mainsail new October 2011, loose foot, (top) two full battens, two partial battens, three reef points, floppy rings at the tack reefing grommets, with Cunningham grommet, leech tell-tales, and mid-sail tell tales.
  • 150% genoa (currently on roller furler) is in very good condition, Sunbrella cover re-sewed by Schurr Sails (Pensacola) December 2010, with luff tell-tales.
  • 110% genoa in very good condition, set up for roller furling, attached sheets included, with luff tell-tales.

    Sail controls: Set up for easy single-handed or short-handed sailing. Main and genoa halyards are led through fairleads to a double Lewmar rope clutch, where they can be tensioned by a Lewmar #6 winch. The genoa is on a Harken Mk III roller furling system. Two internal reefing lines exit the front of the boom and are led back to port and starboard cam cleats on the cabin top. The Cunningham line is led to a cam cleat on the starboard cabin top. The 6:1 purchase mid-boom main-sheet tackle is on the cabin top, and is tensioned through a cam cleat on the starboard side. Genoa sheets are led through large, moveable snatch blocks on the toe-rail to new (July 2012) Lewmar 15 Evo self-tailing winches. There is a 4:1 purchase boom vang, and a mainsail downhaul. There is a telescoping whisker-pole for holding out the clew of the genoa when sailing dead down wind.

    Interior: The varnished teak interior is in great condition, and the V-berth and settee cushions are clean and undamaged. There are sliding doors between the V-berth and vanity/toilet area, and between the vanity/toilet area and the main cabin. There is a hanging locker, a shelf, and two drawers above the toilet. A table with three legs folds down from the starboard side of the main bulkhead, and can be used from one or both settees. There are two passive vents in the cockpit and two on the transom, and a solar-powered extractor fan in the main hatch in the V-berth provides 24-hour air circulation. The galley has a two-burner propane stove, a large ice box with moveable shelf, and a sink. There is a large, folding map table over a locker with a built-in compass in the nav station on the port side; aft of these is a pilot's berth. There are storage areas behind, under, and above the settees.

    Plumbing: There is a 12V pressurized water system for the vanity and galley sinks with a 34-gallon freshwater tank. The marine toilet leads to a custom-built holding tank, which is usually emptied via a deck fitting, but can be discharged through the hull by a macerator pump where permitted by maritime law. There is a 12V pump that drains melt water from the icebox into the galley-sink through hull.

    Instrumentation: DSC-equipped VHF radio, working Datamarine depth sounder and speed meter. Masthead mounted Windex for wind direction.

    Electrical system: House and start flooded-cell batteries with selector switch. Twin 10A smart battery charger. All interior 12V lights have LED bulbs; there is a 110V AC light over the starboard settee. There is a 12V fan mounted on the main bulkhead. There are 12V sockets in the cockpit, above the map table, and on the main bulkhead. There is an automatic 12V bilge pump, a backup (manually switched) 12V bilge pump, and a hand-operated bilge pump. There are 110V AC sockets in the battery well, next to the map table, in the galley, and in the vanity. A 35A shore-power cable is included.

    Safety: a LifeSling man-overboard rescue system is installed; there are coast-guard approved flares, two inflatable life jackets, and an air-horn. There are three fire extinguishers on board. The DSC radio has a distress signal 'panic button' that broadcasts identifying information on channel 16. The cockpit floor, seats, cabin top, and decks have new high-quality non-skid paint anywhere you might step.
