1979 Watkins 27 ft Sailboat Wide 10 ft beam

Here is a link to the full history and specifications for this boat:
http://www.watkinsowners.com/w27.htm

With a 10 foot beam and 6'2" standing headroom, this seems like a much larger boat.

-The deck layout is efficient with all lines leading aft.
-The main has lazy jacks for ease of handling.
-The 145% Blue Water Genoa is new in June 2016.
-The cockpit area is spacious with 2 pedestal seats on the transom, dinghy davits and a lifting pole to raise or lower an outboard.
-There's also a boarding platform and ladder on the stern.

All wood above deck was replaced with low maintenance and durable Star Board.

Down below, the space is well used. There's a simple galley with sink, microwave, and icebox to port and a quarter berth (currently used for storage) to port.

The main saloon area is roomy with settees port and starboard, an enclosed head to port forward with a locker across and a separate Vee Berth room forward.

If you are looking for a sturdy coastal/island cruiser, weekender or cozy liveaboard then this may just be the boat for you.
