Nice boat. I would guess $10-15K tops in this market.

Look at your competition on yachtworld, sailboatlistings.com, Craigslist, eBay, sailingtexas, etc. Lots of boats sitting there not moving, prices dropping...

What do you think she should sell for?

Re: C & C 27 1971 in beautiful condition

For starters, which C&C 27' model is it? There are at least 5 different C&C 27's listed on sailboatdata.com: C&C 27-1 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com
Knowing which C&C 27' model it is can shed some light on the year the boat was made as hull #13 was likely made the first year of production (of that model).
It sounds like your boat has some nice and recent equipment.
Unfortunately I'm with JamesWilson in that I think you'd be lucky to get 10 - 15K for her in this market.

As for places to list the boat I'd suggest Sailboat Listings - sailboats for sale
It is free, nationwide and google knows how to search it.
