1977 Bal - Boa 27 8.2L Cruiser Sailboat in Apex, North Carolina

Stock #129201

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

The owner of this boat is reported to have sailed this Lyle Hess Design cruiser from Virginia south along the East Coast singlehanded. And has also cruised the West Coast with no issues. He reports that she is also great on inland lakes where she has been most of the last decade.

This boat, an extended design of the Bal-Boa 27 8.2, with fixed keel, 4'6" draft and internal ballast, was the largest trailerable boat of its time. The owner reports that while it does need some TLC on the exterior, still sails just as well as it did when he bought it about 17 years ago. He's made several modifications over his almost two decades of ownership.

Lyle Hess designed this boat for the family. The salon has 6' headroom. There's a dinette to port that converts to a double berth, and a settee lies to starboard. The galley includes one sink and two burner LP stove and icebox. You can comfortably seat four in the cabin.

The custom trailer allows a single person to raise and lower the mast with minimal effort. Seller reports that the mast can also be bowed when afloat to get under low bridges if necessary. The drop center tandem axle trailer was modified for easy launching and retrieving. Has keel centering guides and 12' telescoping tongue. The boat will float off the trailer in 5' of water.

The hull is heavily built with hand-laid fiberglass, and the boat is reinforced at all stress points with marine plywood laminated to the hull, deck, and cabin top. An integral fiberglass hull liner provides additional strength.

Information On Condition

The owner of this boat acknowledges that the exterior does need some TLC, but believes the vessel is still in great shape internally.

He is not aware of anything (aside from the exterior) that would need to be addressed. Also, reports that it sails just as good as the day he brought it home.
