I owned one of these for 3 years and sold her two years ago. She was my first boat, and I bought her because I love the hullform. Carl Alberg designed beautiful boats.
They are not particularly fast, however. I got the racing bug and sold mine for something a lot faster and more responsive. With the B27, I just wasn't competitive in the predominantly light air we have here on the southern Chesapeake. In the two races I did where the wind was over 15kts, we easily sailed to our rating (234) and did pretty well.
The B27 makes a decent small cruiser and can be easily double- or single-handed. The interior works OK for 2-4 people on short cruises, or 2 on longer cruises.
