Pros:
Cons:

Good cruising boat for its size. Makes excellent use of space. Fairly good sailor, and points reasonably well. Wing keel is effective, and boat only draws 36". Most hardware is good quality. Traveller rig supplied is basic, and needs upgrade.

A freind lent me his 272 for a few days.
I found it to be slow in light wind and
tender in heavier conditions.It just
didn't seem to sail well on any point
of sail. He wants me to buy it so I'd
like others opinions.

Pros:
Cons:

My family and I have done extensive cruising during the 5 years we have owned "Great Escapes". She has served us very well during this time. She is simple to operate, easy to learn and practice sailing skills on, and comfortable. For a 27 foot booat she has the room of a 30 footer, and the sailing ease of a 15 footer. With a shoal keel it is hard to mess up.

Pros: shallow draft of fixed wing keel, cabin space roomy, mini swim platform
Cons: outboard models lean to starboard, old furler system

Just bought it, sailed fantastic in light winds, handled rough seas under motor well...will post more after this 2007 season.

Nice quality for price, easy access to all deck hardware from in cabin.

Pros: Size, Configuration and Simplicity
Cons: Not a Racer (That's OK for Me)

Now in my second season of ownership I amaze myself with what a good decision I made!!

At 27' it's the largest boat capable of being powered effectively with an outboard. Max potential engine repair bill ever -3k.

Replace fuel tank?? -$40 (Six gallon)

The outboard sets up much more conveniently than a Catalina 27.

I like the traveler set up over the companionway.

The original furler jib set up is not too big and not too small. Most of the power comes from the jib/genny. The main is a little underpowered but they work together well.

The 3ft draft wing without a cumbersome swing keel is unparalleled.

We daysail, camp dockside and eat lunch.

There is much more room below than a 25' and since that's all we do, anything greater than 27' would just be a waste for us.

No pressure water, no marine head (just porta-pottie) no 30amp (just 12v) a knot meter, depth sounder and a VHF. Only one below waterline thru hull and that stays closed all the time!!

I identified what my needs were, how the boat would be used and found the perfect boat for me.
