A fine example of the Mk II version of the C S J Roy designed Macwester 27, a popular and very tough bilge keel cruiser with a lot of space for a boat of its size and a cruising speed of 5.5 kts. The Macwester is similar in many ways to the Westerly Centaur and is a comparable boat. If you're considering buying a Centaur, don't miss looking at this boat.
Well cared for and maintained, she comes with a good inventory including a spray hood and full cockpit tent with window panels/flaps, a cabin heater, a chart plotter, echo sounder and log.
Although she is much loved the owner has now moved up to a larger boat for longer cruising trips but wants to see her go to a good home. Accordingly she is available at a really excellent price.
Yes, the interior is dated by today's standards, but she is in good condition and would be a perfect first cruiser for a couple with a limited budget.
She was fitted with new standing rigging in 2002.
2007 survey available.
Wintered ashore and moored in season near Oban.
The current owner bought her in 1995 and has cruised her extensively, first on the East Coast and later on the West Coast of Scotland.
