Re: Which 27 footer to buy.

Ok, it was only 15 years. But I loved that boat.

Why is it a better boat than the Vega? Where do I start? To begin with its a far more modern design with a fin keel and big outboard rudder. It's a frac rig and doesn't need big genoas in light air. It's a Peter Norlin design and he was a very good designer. There would be no comparison at all in the overall performance of the Vega compared to the Cirrus 7.8.

First:
It is a rare boat around here but common in Scandinavia. Mine was the only one I ever saw. Heard rumors of another up in BC though. I really liked the look of it. As my bumper sticker says, "Life's too short to own an ugly boat".

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
