By any standards, the Nor’Sea 27 is a remarkable yacht, constructed to a standard that is rare in a cruising boat of this size. With her one-piece, hand-laminated hull, all lead ballast, top-quality metalwork and remarkable joinery, the Nor’Sea 27 is the ultimate in transportable yachts. According to the builder, the Nor’Sea 27 Lyle Hess designed pocket cruisers have made 4 circumnavigations and more than 160 Atlantic and Pacific crossings. Please note the new Universal 18 hp M3-20B hp diesel with only 10 hours and a transferable slip in the Monterey Municipal Marina.
The owner is buying a bigger boat and wants this one sold now, so the asking price was just reduced $5,000! This well cared for vessel was recently re-powered and has new sails.
A reasonable offer will be considered!

The Nor'Sea hull is hand laminated in one piece, not two halves glued together. The lamination schedule calls for a minimum of seven layers of alternating 1 1/2 oz, mat and 18 oz. roving on the sides, increasing to nine layers at the waterline, 11 layers at the garboard and 22 layers at the stem, keel, and stern. Thicknesses vary from 5/16" on the side to 3/4" at the keel. Chainplate areas are heavily reinforced. The lapstrake construction requires approximately 40% more labor hours in layup than a smooth hull. The benefits obtained, which are much greater rigidity and strength and a dryer ride in a choppy sea, are well worth the extra cost and effort. Using a fiberglass and wood composite construction, the cabin top is 1 1/4" thick; the decks are 1" thick; and the cabin sides are 3/4" thick. The Nor'Sea's cockpit is expressly designed for offshore safety. It will not hold enough water to cripple the boat's sailing ability. In addition, two 1 1/2" drains are built in. All deck hardware and ports are solid bronze or stainless steel. All cleats, rails, etc, are through bolted with stainless backing blocks.
