Description: The W27 was the most popular and longest running model made by Watkins Yachts. The keel, like all Watkins, is fully encapsulated in the hull so there is no danger of loosing it. The keel came in three versions, shoal, deep, and shoal with center board. The shoal is the most common with the other two being rare. She has sleeping accommodations for five, including a V-berth, settee berth and double quarter berth. The enclosed head is forward on the port side with hanging locker and storage opposite. The galley is aft to starboard. A Yanmar diesel was standard. There are six opening ports and two hatches. Standing headroom is 62 in the main salon. Early models had 2 or more ports which did not open.
The hull is molded as a single unit of a combination of polyester resin and fiberglass woven roving and multidirectional chopped strand fiber (MCSF). The keel is molded integrally with the hull and all ballast is contained inside. The deck and cockpit, like the hull, are molded as a single unit of a combination of polyester resin and fiberglass woven roving and MCSF. Plywood coring is incorporated between layers of fiberglass in the cabin top, deck, seat, and cockpit sole areas to give additional stiffness. The non-skid finish is molded into the deck. The exterior finish is pigmented gelcoat molded onto the fiberglass. The boot and sheer stripe are also gelcoat molded permanently into the hull.
The hull-to-deck joint is a 'flange' type, which during assembly, is liberally coated with a combination adhesive/sealant.
