Pros:
Cons:

Many clever design features and a few trade offs but a terrific boat for a family of four. Very well built compared to typical boats from California. Yacht like interior with tons of room and first class hardware. Great cockpit, 32 gal holding tank, The 8 hp Yanmar is rough and it's not enough power but always runs. Sails fast and points high
but heels more than other boats we have owned and it's not a bad idea to reef at about 20knots. Our boat has few problems compared to others almost 20 years old with the exception of blisters. The weakspot would have to be the shape of the coach roof and narrow side decks, while they contribute to the roominess they make the deck a not so smooth place to work.. Also the unusual stem head fitting makes mounting an anchor roller difficult. Overall we are thrilled with the quality, ruggedness and performance. We think we got more than we paid for. PS This is our 5th boat between 22-28 feet.

Pros:
Cons:

Great entry-level weekend cruiser or club racer (phrf 216). You won't see another boat out point a CS27 in moderate winds. Heavy construction with quality hardware, loads of interior room for older under 30' designs. Huge storage capacity in 4 cockpit lockers (I'm 6'1" and can easily step into them). The 8 horsepower Yanmar is totally reliable, ours still in original condition functioning flawlessly with over 1500 hours. Although it is adequate to move the boat at hullspeed only on flat water without a breeze. When the wind picks up (>20 knots) and there is a chop, you better be sailing because this little engine won't move you forward at all.

Weaknesses: We needed some deck work around the mast step on the coachroof due to moisture trouble, however, the hull was (and still is) completely moisture-free. The sink in the galley is set far aft, so when doing dishes or washing your hands, after a few minutes you begin to feel it in your lower back.

Overall, great performance, accomodations, and value without spending huge bucks!
