Nor'Sea 27, 1984

The Nor’Sea 27 is a small but rugged live-aboard pocket-cruiser and seaworthiness at the heart of her design. Designer Lyle Hess, best known for designing Lynn and Larry Pardey’s bluewater cruising yachts Seraffyn and Taleisin was approached with the challenging brief to design a heavy weather, long distance cruiser which could be legally trailerable. Unfazed, Hess came up with this tough and traditionally styled 27-foot double-ender which is trailerable.

Rose Marie is a cutaway full keel 4’ draft cutter rigged sailboat. Built for solo sailing.
