Motivated seller is interested in your offer! The 1978 Newport 27S, designed by C&C (Cuthbertson and Cassian), is a yacht that has captured trophies and imaginations. Built as a racer/cruiser, its now known more for cruising, and still a quick boat that responds well to the seasoned sailor or novice alike. With only three prior owners who treated her with great respect, as the photos show. She is not a "project boat", I have done all the work for you; "Ail Not" is ready to sail TODAY!
The latest survey in 2007 confirmed her continued sound hull and build when all through hulls were switched from plastic gate to brass ball valves. A new muffler, drive shaft and strut were also installed. Hull and decks are watertight. No blisters or delamination!
