Equipment: C&C 27
A best-seller with many editions
By Paul Howar
Of all the designs produced by C&C Yachts over more than two decades, the C&C 27 was overwhelmingly its most successful. It had the longest production run - more than a decade The 27 had generous beam and relativity high topsides for a boat of her length, and relatively short overhangs with a wide transom, compared to more traditional designs. The roomy cabin offered standing headroom. A head and hanging locker are just aft of the V berth, with a dinette to port and settee to starboard. Just inside the companionway is a compact galley with sink and stove; opposite is an icebox and some counter space. Cockpit benches are long and straight, reaching within a few inches of the transom. The overall feeling is of a comfortable, well-proportioned, moderate boat.

The 27 has a swept-back fin keel typical of many 1970s designs. The configuration makes for less than perfect windward performance, but offers good reaching in return. A strong and elaborate winter storage cradle is required, as the keel cannot support the hull weight. With a spade rudder fixed at the aft end of the waterline, the 27's light helm responds quickly.

Another 27 enthusiast, Ken Clark (owner of hull 42 since 1972), shared his experiences. "When I first bought my boat Halifax, it was the fastest boat in its size range. We raced and cruised her in the Montreal area when we moved there, and my sons acted as crew when we shifted to Toronto to sail with that fleet."

There is an active owner's association, which mainly serves racers, with club racing fleets in the western Lake Ontario region. The class enjoys its own starts in longer LORC events.

According to Dyer about half of C&C 27 owners are cruisers only, and many of the racing boats are crewed by families whose children have grown up sailing on the same boat. At least one C&C 27 has sailed from the Great Lakes to Bahamas, as Ron and Ann Ogg of Aliyah spent Christmas of 1980 in George Town in the Exumas before returning home. The boat is strong and seaworthy enough to make such a coastal cruise, though carrying capacity - both in volume and weight - is limited on this type of boat. With their age, the topsides of many 27s are fading. Many hulls have been painted. If looking at an older model, topsides refinishing should be budgeted for if it hasn't already been done. The rubber liner for port lights is probably weather-checked and beginning to leak.

With a proven reputation as a strong, well-built and well-designed boat, and with an active racing fleet, this all-Canadian product presents a low-cost alternative for those wishing to buy a moderate sized racer/cruiser.

Value guide:
The cost of a C&C 27 is moderate - about $25,000 for an early, basically equipped model, up to about $48,000 for a more recent, well-equipped diesel powered version.
