1982 - 27 foot Watkins Cruiser

The Watkins 27 was the most popular and longest running model made by Watkins Yachts. Over 500 were built between 1977 and 1984. The W27 was designed by Walter Scott who also designed the Allmand 31.

This Watkins 27 is one of the stronger coastal cruisers afloat, featuring thick hand-laid glass. The shoal draft keel, like all Watkins, is fully encapsulated in the hull so there is no danger of losing it.

The interior combines a fiberglass pan with teak veneer plywood bulkheads, teak trim, and teak accessories like drawer fronts, louvered cabinet doors, fiddles, companionway stairs, and teak ply stowage cabinets above the port and starboard berths.

The interior layout is typical with a V-berth forward, the head (to port) and lockers (starboard) divide it from the main salon area which has a fold-up dining table.

The port side settee pulls out to create a double berth, the starboard is a single. Aft and to port is a quarter berth and to starboard is the galley with a built in microwave.

The Soleus Portable Air Conditioner runs on regular 110 shore power when tied up. It rolls on casters and keeps interior clean and cool and prevents mold on hot summer days and nights. Ducted through fitted porthole and moisture tube drains into bilge. Stows away strapped to bulkhead when underway. Comfortable for sleeping.

For cooking outdoors, there's a Stern Gas barbecue.
