1980 Watkins 27 coastal cruiser Sloop Sailboat in Mobile, Alabama

Stock #202783

Watkins sailboats were built in Florida from '73 to '89 and this model 27 was originally designed and built starting in 1977 by the Naval Architect Walter Scott. The design was a success and so over 500 were built.

The current owner has totally refinished the boat inside and out from the fin keel to the masthead. The water and fuel tanks were replaced with new as was all interior plywood and installed new white oak.

The cockpit is fitted with all new electronics and the mast was also totally reworked with all new fittings.

There's a new compost style head, shower, refrigerator/freezer, and an alcohol stove in the galley.
No AC but lots of portholes to let the breeze in and there is a cabin heater.

The owners have put a lot of hard work and $$ into this boat and though they would like to keep her, the plan has changed to hit the road in an RV.

Dinghy included: Inflatable with no engine
