Re: question for experienced boat owners

While the death of your family member is a sad event and you have my sympathies, that you have been left his/her yacht is a "Windfall" (and, if you are at all into sailing, might make an appropriate name). Pacific Seacraft is one of the "World's Best Boats" (or at least the US's Best Boats) and the 27 footer, the Orion, is one of Pacific Seacraft's best models. It is world wide capable yet also makes a great coastal cruiser. The 1983 model of the yacht will be worth something between $49 and $60 thousand dollars (US)--depending upon condition--if you choose to sell her, but will be priceless to you if you are at all interested in the sport/avocation of sailing.

I'm sure others here abouts will agree and have more to offer. FWIW, if the yacht is in Florida, I will be happy to help as I'm sure others here will be in other venues.

Good Luck...
