She is a fast, comfortable and very safe racer/cruiser, and has been undergoing a two year restoration and upgrade. Projects should be complete by the end of December. Complete photo history of renovation is available. She is berthed at the South Shore Marina on Lake Pueblo, Colorado, and can be shown to serious buyers.
The 27 is in many ways an ideal lake boat or coastal cruiser. Small enough to transport with a trailer (not included), yet large enough to accommodate a family and to overnight comfortably. Her design is excellent for cruising, but she also has a good racing history.
She has a large sail inventory and a long list of included equipment. Cathryn Lee has sailed safely in winds over 35 knots, and has cruised the Gulf of Mexico. Halyards run aft to the cockpit for ease in single handing. The 9.9 HP outboard is equipped with an alternator and electric start.
The Starwind's shoal draft keel (draft 3'7") allows you to come close to shore in as little as five feet of water, but the heavy keel makes her a stiff sailor in a breeze. And on top of it all, she is a very pretty boat. She has great lines and down below there is ample woodwork for a yacht-like look.
