Description: Motivated seller considering all reasonable offers!

This 1973 C&C 27 is named Desiderata. She has been a project for over 3 years now. There is nothing left aboard this yacht that has not been inspected and gone through. My opinion is that overall the yacht is in great shape for its age and a shining example of the long term durability of a well built fiberglass yacht.

Desiderata was re-launched on December 16 2013 in St. Petersburg FL following a 2.5 year refit in the town of Dresser WI at “Shipwreck Boat Works” a highly reputable boat service yard. Having also spent its previous 40 years in the freshwater of the Midwest’s lakes and rivers getting only seasonal use, the yacht has an air of crisp shiny newness about it despite its age.

The deck paint and non-skid is “Awlgrip” brand put on under the supervision of the professionals at “Shipwreck Boat Works”. The gelcoat on the freeboard is original, but was restored to a high gloss. The bottom was completely smoothed, faired, and then covered with “Interlux Epoxy Barrier Coat System” put on after at least 2 years of drying out on the hard- so there is no risk of sealing water under the barrier coat resulting in a practically blister proof hull. “Interlux Ultra” bottom paint was applied a week before wetting the boat in its new home of St. Petersburg Florida.

My girlfriend and I have lived aboard the yacht Desi full time since it was launched Dec. last year and we love this girl! She sails great in light air, she is fast and nimble, but still behaves herself when the afternoon thunderstorms hit. We have sailed her to every corner of Tampa Bay as well as a 700 nm journey from St. Petersburg to her current home in Jacksonville FL which took us through the legendary Florida Keys. We have full faith this yacht could take you anywhere your willing to sail. But we personally have decided to move up to a bigger cruising yacht that is an opportunity we can’t pass up.
