Re: Which model do I own
I bought a newport 27. No real idea what model it is. I think I have the shallow draft. and the drawings of the 27 mkiii show the stove on the wrong side
I haven't sailed it a lot yet. I still need to add a second bilge pump and replace or repair the manual pump.

|rebelsraft||Got the same problem too. But with your info I finally, found out that it is from Oct 1979. I believe it is a N27S based on the cabin configuration but the sail says N27. I am about to buy a new mainsail and was wondering about the dimensions. My measurements of the old sail were 31ft and 9.5ft (foot) but all rigging configs show 10.25ft foot. I am pretty sure the boom would support 10.25ft. Just wanted to make sure.|

An '85 should be a MK-II. The hull is #862 of the production run; mfr'd in Jan of 85 (based on your HIN). The rig type would depend on what the standard or tall dimension is; measure your mast height and boom length. The "S" should denote a shoal draft configuration; but I'm not certain on that one because my boat is labeled on the instrument panel as a '41-S but it has a full depth keel.

Which model do I own
I am the proud owner of a 1985 Newport 27 (CPY00862A585). I've never been able to figure out the particular model of this boat. I've done some searches and have found a wide array of different models: the Gulf, MK 1, MK 2S, MK 3 Short Rig, Mk 3 Std. Rig, Std rig, Tall rig, 27-3, 27-3 SD, 27ET, 27S, 27S TM, 27S-2 766+, 27S-2 SD, 27S-2 SM and the 27S-2 SM SD. Is there a way to tell which one I have from the hull number?
