What do you need to know? It displaces 5400lbs, has a fractional rig with a big tall main, the hull is solid FRP, the deck is cored with foam (instead of balsa). The keel is lead. 11hp Universal diesel. I have the brochures for both the 27 and 28 (essentially the same boat). I can email them to you if you want. It's one of the boats I'm researching for my next boat.

Jim Taylor, the designer has a pretty good track record.. it's an attractive boat considering standing headroom in that length, and Precision has a decent rep for workmanship.

SN member Labatt used to own a smaller version and spoke highly of it.

Looks like an interesting boat. Something I think I will keep in mind when I am ready to buy.

Yep... I had a Precision 23. We absolutely loved the boat - she sailed great, appeared to be pretty well built, was very comfortable and she looked beautiful. They didn't try to make her fancy, such as similar Hunter's and Catalinas. Instead, they focused on classic design, a good rig, good placement of deck hardware, cockpit comfort, etc. Anyway, there's a great Precision message board at Precision Sailboats Forum - Message Index
