    More than 150 Nor'Sea 27s have crossed the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The boats are limited production, hand-crafted to rigorous standards. It is one of the world's strongest sailboats: heavily built and over-rigged. High-density handlaid fiberglass.

  • Special non-blistering gelcoat and resin used throughout the lay-up. Teak exterior trim, bronze hardware, heavy teak caprails with rugged bronze gunnel covers. Massive triple rudder gudgeons and pintles, solid manganese bronze. Oversized chainplates. 3/8ths inch turnbuckles with 7/32" 1x19 stainless steel rigging. Self-bailing offshore cockpit with storage locker. 7 elliptical bronze opening ports. Large thru-bolted cleats fore and aft. Bow and stern pulpit seats. Dual anchor rollers. Internal halyards.
  • 6'8" bunks for four adults. Two sea-berths on each tack. Dinette with hi-lo dining table. Chart table with storage. Hanging locker. Enclosed head. 30 separate storage compartments. Lightening protection.
  • Minimum of 7 layers of 1.5 oz. mat and 18 oz. roving on the sides, increasing to 9 layers at the waterline, 11 layers at the garboard and 22 layers at the stem! Hull thickness is 3/4" at the keel. This is the same layup schedule used on a Valiant 40, Columbia 41, Tartan 50. Lapstrake construction requires approximately 40% more labor hours in layup, but the benefits are much greater rigidity and strength and a drier ride in choppy seas.
  • The cabin top is 1 1/4" thick. The decks are 1" thick, and the cabin sides are 3/4".
