Re listed again due to no contact from buyer!!!!!!!!! so sorry to all the watchers of this boat, prior to the sale.
The only reason for selling the boat is that I have
bought a newer power boat, as love boating so much and this was a fantastic
first taste of the water.
Perfect first boat to learn on, as a very very safe and stable vessel, so if it’s your first tase of boating this is perfect boat for you!
Cardiff bay is perfect for year round safe sailing so not just a boat for the summer and great value for money
I will take further photos of the instruments, which have been checked today
and all working, but can’t guarantee the accuracy of the instruments and you will have to make your own mind up, as I have never used them.
The Cutlass 27 was designed by Eric White of Marcon
and Alan Hill, one of the pioneers of GRP yacht design, who was responsible for
a wide range of successful designs including the Trident 24, Sabre 27 and Moody
Halberdier. The first Cutlass 27s were built in the late 1960s and the boat
remained in production until around the mid-1980s – approximately 200 are
believed to have been built.
The strong, traditional design with a short counter
stern and long, lead encapsulated, fixed centre keel giving a ballast ratio of
over 50% ensures excellent speed and sea-keeping abilities. She carries her
sail exceptionally well in a good breeze, yet remains manageable and can be
sailed single-handed with ease if required.
4 berths. Two berth V forecabin with hatch, shelves
and windows and roof opening hatch. The saloon incorporates two
full single bunks, a galley with two burner cooker, chart table, storage
lockers, A Simrad RD68 fixed VHF radio (with manual) in the cabin, new loose cloth covers to the original seat
cushions Varnished floors with new carpet and electric lights in all
cabins, as well at sea toilet and hand sink. the boat has two batteries (I
leisure) there is a 3 way plug converter on board, as well as a phone charger,
music radio, a compass as well as a “handheld waterproof Cobra VHF radio”,
which works perfectly and cost £129.00, there is also a Garmin GPS 128 on there plus operating
manual. There is also a marine Navico TP100 autopilot with tiller
control on board which again I have never used, but told it works perfectly
when I bought the boat two years ago. there is a Clipper Duo and a Clipper GPS on deck, (which I have never used as I use an app on my personal tablet, which gives me all the information I need when on deck) There are a number of, upper deck
compartments as well as a gas locker, seat covers and there
is also a spare Tiller on board.
With a little investment (maybe a new smaller cooker,
curtains and new seat pad covers to replace the loose covers currently on there, although for lovers of the
original look of the boat, may want to just use the original pads which are in
great condition and no damage or tares) and a bit of time, this could be the
perfect boat for anyone interested in doing some extended cruising or just
searching for a boat that would look after you at sea with its long keel; she
would comfortably cruise with 2/4 people.
I am no petrol head (the boat has never let me down in the two years I have
owned her and starts first time every time) but the instructions that came with
the boat (see attached photos) are for the instruments on board (although I
have not used them, as only sail out in the bay) and engine manual, which is a
Yanma Diesel Marine engine 1GM10 series, (this has been checked and verified)
and a very clean engine, see new photo the boat is fitted with and electric as
well as manual bilge pumps. The boat has a head sail (which is the only
one I use out in the bay) as well as a mainsail (which I have never use, but
was used when I trialled the boat from the last owner) the boat is also
fitted with lazy jacks so can easily be sailed single handed, it also
comes with an anchor with chain, mooring warps and new full
set of fenders which are ready to go on. There
are new 4 fenders (not even out of the packs yet) and a couple already on the
boat, I had a new oak tiller made at the start of the year (there is a spare on
there as well) I have just replaced the bilge pump switch and just fitted a brand new Starter control panel for the engine (the one on there was fine, but always looking to keep things improved) so just spent £500 on her this month.
All in all – a good looking and robust sailing
boat, realistically priced which would benefit from a few minor improvements
(maybe a smaller cooker/Burner, curtains, new seat covers as the original once
are still on there with no damage or tares, but fitted with loose covers)
but a fantastic solid first sailing boat – but would be sure to pay you back in
additional photos available on request.
