C&C 27 Mark V

I am looking at one of these boats. My first walk through looked good, but before I schedule a haul out, survey and trial sail, I'd like to get some other opinions on these boats: technical, construction, maintenence, sailing experiences. I sail on a large NC lake, so draft is not an issue. Could transport the boat to NC coast in the future. I single hand alot. All opinions welcome.

Check the C&C 27 association web site

The Mark V is very different from the Mark I to IV. YIf you have not doneso already ou can read about it at
C&C 27 Assoc – Sea Change – The Mark V

I think it would be a good choice for your intended use.

Nice looking boats, tend to hold their values in our area, and are generally on the pricey side.

Wink 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.
Happy hunting.
