New Beta Marine engine and Twin Disc transmission in 2007.  Under 100 hours.

A great couple or weekend sailboat with room for four.  Ample interior spaces for relaxing and entertaining and a large cockpit for outdoor activities.  Wide side decks make maneuverability a breeze.   Don’t miss this well priced, re-powered Cal 27.


Enter the boat by way of the port and starboard side deck boarding gates and into the large U-shaped cockpit.  The 8 foot cockpit offers two large storage lazarettes and tiller steering.  Engine gauges and controls are forward on the starboard side.  Entering the boat through the companionway and down a few steps you enter the main cabin.  A unique layout, the engine compartment is under the companionway step and the aft bulkhead lower section removes for easy engine access.  Along the starboard side is the galley area offering a single stainless steel sink and in-counter ice box.  There is ample storage and food prep space.  The salon features port and starboard settees which convert to berths.  The port side settee extends through the bulkhead for a 6 ft 6 inch berth.  Under and behind the cushions are storage areas and outboard on each side are shelves.  The dinette table fold neatly up and out of the way on the port side forward bulkhead.  The dinette will seat four.  Further forward is the head compartment which runs athwartships and is a walk-thru to the v-berth.  Along the port side is a stainless steel sink and vanity with cold water pump faucet.  The head is a manual head. Overhead is a large hatch with screen.  Along the starboard side is a hanging locker with shelf above.  The v-berth is large and offers outboard upper and lower storage shelving. 

All interior accommodations match well with teak bulkheads and trim.
