Willard Albury focused on confidence offshore when he designed the 27. Having 80% more volume than our 23, you’ll notice there is ample space in every direction. In fact, you’ll be surprised she’s only 27’. When you climb aboard, notice she barely rocks. Your next surprise is how stiff she is at the dock, or at sea. Starting our tour aft, she has room for diving, fishing, bean bags, a livewell and rear bench seat. As you move forward and up to the bow, you’ll notice the wide decks and large proportions flow through the boat. The console is the right height to see over, yet the headroom inside is ample. Find comfortable seating for 4-6 people around the forward seats plus 2 on the console seat. 8 people socializing is a good time anchored up, or at your favorite sandbar. If you’re a hard core fisherman, we offer her in a flush deck version.
In addition to being spacious, she is also the fastest in our fleet. The 27 boasts a top speed of 53 mph with a full tank and crew. This hull’s ability to track through tall waves, at speed, is outstanding. Even with big swells and stiff chop in the mix, you won’t hear the chines slap or any hatches slam. For more relaxing days, bring it back to 3500 rpm…your getting 2 mpg at 30 mph for optimal cruising speed. Kick back and enjoy the ride for 360 miles. For those interested in even more economy, single engine 350hp (and higher) outboards are a option.
The 27 continues to improve since she was introduced in 2007. Her forward seat and forward in-deck storage areas are 50% larger than before. The storage area and pump room are now finished with Awl-Grip paint. Highly refined electrical systems are built, off-site, by the best in the industry, with continuously labeled wires and Deutsch connectors. Pipework is punched up, with wrap around backrests and schedule 80 radius top legs. Starting with the 2014 model year, our second generation interior has made the 27 better and more attractive. She has a new console, mounted further aft. We incorporated a storage bin, added a front seat cooler and improved the styling and ergonomic layout. The 27 aft bulkhead was raised, which allowed us to incorporate a aft live well, improve the rear seat and have a pleasing transom shape. The 27 is in high demand, and a great move up if you outgrow your 20 or 23.
