The Jaguar 27 is a popular family cruising yacht benefiting from good sailing characteristics, practical layout and solid build quality. Rascal is a desirable bilge keel version and has been very well maintained within the same family from new and is very well presented. She comes with a good inventory including Harken self tailing winches, diesel heating, autopilot, and in-mast furling mainsail for easy handling.
