27' CS 27

New York

Ravat is a must-see CS27 including significant refitting and modernization. She sails well in every condition I’ve had her in.

Ravat is a rare configuration in that she has a factory Edson wheel option and a shoal draft. If you are seriously interested in a CS27 you will need to see this boat in person to appreciate the work that has gone into her, and the money you'll save in future work.

Electrical refit highlights include extensive electrical system upgrades with Blue Seas components, three batteries, Fusion marine stereo, Raymarine ST60 instruments, and chart plotter mounted on a custom angled pedestal guard. A Standard Horizon VHF is complemented by a cockpit-mounted remote microphone.

The plumbing systems also was overhauled with a new pressure water system, in-line water filter, a new head, a custom new holding tank and low-permeation sanitary hoses. This boat has none of the scents which are common to boats with older sanitary systems. In addition, all gate valves have been replaced with new heavy bronze Groco seacocks with new hoses. Original plywood backing plates have all been replaced with new ½” thick epoxy-bedded structural fiberglass backing plates.

Structural refit activities included complete repair of age-typical stress cracking at keel-hull joint, and barrier coating with Interprotect 2000E. Side decks have undergone core replacement, and are very solid with professionally applied textured gel coat. Since that repair nearly all deck penetrations have had their core sections potted, and hardware bedded in butyl.

Rigging refit included new side-stays and back-stay, new lifelines, new Boomkicker, and nearly all running rigging. She has a new main sail cover, and a new Quantum racing Dacron main.

The Yanmar diesel engine is clean, starts right up, and has been smooth and reliable. The fuel tank is also recently replaced.

Her hull has a gleaming Awlcraft 2000 paint job (2010), and the ports are custom acrylic. This is a dry boat.
