1970, Cutlass 27, professionally restored, TOPSIDES RE-SPRAYED 2018, original grey polished superstructure, windows re-sealed, epoxy coated below the waterline, mast step strengthened, lovely interior, superb classic!
The Cutlass 27 was designed by Eric White of Marcon and Alan Hill, one of the pioneers of GRP yacht design, who was responsible for a wide range of successful designs including the Trident 24, Sabre 27 and Moody Halberdier. The first Cutlass 27s were built in the late 1960s and the boat remained in production until around the mid-1980s - approximately 200 are believed to have been built.
The strong, traditional design with a short counter stern and long, lead encapsulated, fixed centre keel giving a ballast ratio of over 50% ensures excellent speed and sea-keeping abilities. She carries her sail exceptionally well in a good breeze, yet remains manageable and can be sailed single-handed with ease if required.
