C&C 27 Mark V
I waited many years to buy a C&C 27 because there are fewer on the West coast. Found a beautiful MK I in Calif. with many upgrades others don't have. I purchased primarily due to outstanding build quality for the dollar$ spent. I have not been disappointed in this purchase. Yes, they are higher priced than other boats of the same LOA; but you will appreciate their performance on the water.
Fortunately, mine had a good trailer with it for transportation.
Why did you concentrate on the MK. V series? There are many older C&C's around the Great Lakes region near Canada.
