Description: Knoop 27 EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE, WELL BUILT CRUISER/RACER!
Tasmanian designed and built, the Knoop 27 is renowned for its excellent sailing performance and sea keeping abilities. Easily managed shorthanded, it is a versatile yacht which can be comfortably sailed single handed, but has the turn of speed to be competitive as a club twilight racer if desired. This vessel has also been utilised as a liveaboard and could continue to be enjoyed as an on water home. Having been well built, and freshly antifouled, this vessel would suit anyone looking for a quality fiberglass yacht at an economical price!
Stepping inside, the saloon is light and airy. To port is the dinette with seating for 2. Opposite is the settee which can double as a berth when required. The main accommodation is forward with a generous double berth with comfortable mattress. The galley is to starboard and features a 2 burner metho stove, stainless steel sink, and fresh water. The package is complete with a near new Airhead composting toilet.
On deck, the cockpit is well set up for shorthanded sailing, with all controls coming back to the cabin top. The sails are easily managed with the furler and boombag with lazy jacks.
This vessel is powered by a 10HP Volvo Penta which was professionally rebuilt in 2014 and has been lightly used since. This provides easy and economical cruising at 5 knots.
