27'''' with long vee berth?

I''m going to start scouting 27'' boats but I need one with a vee berth for someone 6''2". A Catalina 27'' doesn''t cut it. Does anyone have a suggestion?

I''ll use the boat in the Chesapeake and for short coastal runs. There will be two of us in the vee.

Thanks for all ideas.

27'''' with long vee berth?

Check out a Pearson 27, sometimes called a P-27II. It''s the model made from 1987-1991 when Pearson went belly up. I own a 1989 model. When you come down the companionway, the cabin is open all the way to the bow. The settee is a horse-shoe shape, and the table drops to form a very large "v-berth." I haven''t measured (but will if you want) but I''m sure it will handle your 6''2" frame. It''s also a great boat. If you want to know more, send me a message here on Sailnet.

The Islander 28 has a long starboard vee-berth. The port side is shorter. A great sailing boat. Featherlight tiller and will outpoint most to weather.

The Cal 2-27 has a V-Berth with 6''3" headroom. It is also a real great boat!!!

I am 6''6" and own a 1994 Precision 28. I can sleep comfortably in either the v-berth or the quarter berth. It is a pleasure to sail.

Does the boat have an anchor locker?

If there is no anchor locker access from the deck many boats have virtually unused space immediately forward of vee berth. This can be modified to provide additional length in Vee Berth. Usually only one of the two people requires the extra length.

This may give you more flexibility in which boat you buy. I do belive that most berths in mid eighties were 6''2" or 6''3".

Just a thought.

Mike

mrb222:

How about a Pacific Seacraft Dana 24. There are several on the Chesapeake. You should be able to check it out easily.

I had an ''88 Pearson 27. Open cabin with a sizable v-berth. Should accommodate your frame, no problem. Also, about 6'' headroom.
