Marauder 27 in good condition is now for sale exclusively with DBY Boat Sales.
Built in 1977 by Marauder Yachts. This is an easy entry into a small family, coastal hopper or something to sail around the cans for fun. Weekends away are definitely possible with up to 5 berths and basic galley set up.
Quite a high-performance yacht with her fractional rig.
New interior upholstery, fully re wired in 2016, Sails replaced 2016,2 new batteries in 2019, Bukh 10hp engine just serviced in late 2020 with a low 500 hours showing and antifouled at the same time. Rigging replaced in 2006. Raymarine depth sounder. Little to do but turn key and enjoy.
Extract from an early test sail on Lake Macquarie below.
Down below, this yacht is superbly roomy for a 27 footer. The finish is excellent and the whole main saloon has a luxury, comfortable feel about it. The two skylights and four windows make the interior light and airy and the combination of trunk- way and dished floor give good headroom right through the yacht. Shephard has used his imagination to good effect here and the galley area would be the envy of any kitchen designer for its roominess and compactness. The interior lining is tasteful and the teak work first class and every inch has been thoughtfully worked out to give a spacious, luxury finish.
But without doubt the top marks go to the design of the dinette arrangement which is a masterful piece of ingenuity. In its lowered position, the table forms a spacious double bunk with upholstered surrounds on the starboard side, while a single berth occupies the port side. Raised and clamped into position on the Sampson post, the table forms a cosy dinette on the starboard side which will comfortably seat four adults. So far, fairly standard design. But here's the real pitch. A flap on the opposite side of the table can be raised so that the port berth seats another two at the table. Total; six adults comfortably seated around a good sized table. And all this without encroaching in the slightest on the roomy galley area.
The forward cabin is cosy, but nicely private and fitted with toilet on the starboard side and hanging lockers on the port side. Moulded berths provide two kids' bunks if required, otherwise sail storage room. The compartment is adequately lighted and ventilated by the perspex hatch which, as mentioned, offers good access to the foredeck. For a 27ft (8.23m) yacht, this is excellent accommodation indeed, and all tastefully upholstered and finished with teak trim, and extremely comfortable bunks, particularly the spacious double berth.
To summarise, then, the Marauder 8.23 is without doubt a superb cruising yacht with good potential as an offshore racer. She is luxuriously fitted with every innovation that can make life afloat comfortable and easy at this entry level.
