This little gem is a great mid-1980's C&C MORC design. A fast, agressively-canvased machine, she loves the breeze, especially up-wind. She points extremely well. In the right conditions (20 to 25 knots with a well-sized spinaker), the C&C 27 Mk V actually planes on broad reaches without having to surf down large waves. Some people call her "a tad tender"; I prefer powerful, responsive and challenging. She needs (and responds well to) attention in a breeze, but can be depowered for safe relaxed sailing in all conditions.

She is strongly built, beautifully finished, reliable and pretty. I just wished C&C would still be seriously in business in order to build me a new one like my 27, only bigger (like a 33 feet big brother of my small 27).

In terms of overall design, layout and appearance, I have nothing to wish for. If one accepts that she is a small light-weight 27 (and is not looking for much volume), this boat is a balanced package between life aboard and fast cruising/racing. She is a great day sailor.

The only weakness of this design is the side cabin window implementation. Like all C&C windows, they leak after a few years. I fixed them with special v-shaped nuts, bolts and epoxy. It seems to work well for now.

At my sailclub (the Nepean Sailing Club, close to Ottawa, Ontario), we now have a fleet of 5 C&C 27 Mk V. Collectively, we are starting to accumulate a little bit of knowledge about how to sail this boat, and about which gadjets help her performance. If you are interested in this boat, please, feel free to e-chat.

Cons:

The C&C 27 MK V is a MORC-ispired design that resulted in a fast but light racer-cruiser. The boat is very nimble, yet fairly stiff in a blow. The helm is very neutral. The boat was built with quite a bit of teak below deck. The cabin is somewhat small, but well thought-out and perfect for week-long sails for a couple. All lines are led aft, making the boat a pleasure to single-hand. Construction is unusually sturdy because, I am told, C&C borrowed from the design and construction of its larger boats when building the Mk V.

The C&C 27 MK V is a very attractive 27-footer, with an upswept deck, the classic razor-line C&C bow, and outboard rudder.

The only weakness that I feel the boat has is that the Yanmar 1GM10 engine underpowers the boat, especially when motoring in strong winds. Motor-sailing is a must in these conditions.

All-in-all, I am very pleased with the boat. Because it sails so well, and has the beautiful C&C look, I plan to keep this boat for quite some time.

Build very strong. Excellent speed and control in all weather is faster than many bigger and newer designs. I sail it with my family (5) with friends and solo. I intend to race it next year.

Just replaced the 1GM with a new 1GM10 and resealed the hull/keel joint. For more information visit my web site

Unfortunately I have to sell this fantastic boat. It has a brand new engine, autopilot and nice racing sails. I need to sell quick and price it 19,900.-
The boat is located in West Palm Beach Florida
