The J/27 is a keelboat that is both a Weekend Cruiser and a One-Design racing class with strict class rules. Designed with a low & heavy keel with a generous sail area, the boat gives good handling in both light and strong winds, though struggles in moderate winds.
A large cockpit and open decks allows crew to easily move around easily and the Fractional rig means that sail costs are kept down.
The boat comes with a galley with a standard water capacity of 5 gallons and 4 bunks. Below decks headroom is 4.5 feet (1.4 m). The boat has an outboard engine placed on the transom (port side).
