Broker's Comments

Boatshed Dartmouth are pleased to offer for sale this UFO 27. A popular yacht this example benefits from a 2010 Beta engine.

A 2016 Survey found the Yacht to be "generally in a sound structural condition"....with "no major structural defects or significant equipment failures"

The standing rigging was replaced in 2005 as well. The high freeboard and ton of lead keel provides a stiff ,well-mannered sail even in heavy weather. Equally at home club racing (this example has scored well when racing) or cruising the UFO 27 is a great all round yacht.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
