39 views and no response. Somebody has to know something about the Helms line.

It would appear that they were intended to be a competitor to the Catalinaís, not as fast but possibly better built? Have some blister problems, nicely done interiors and loyal owners (one of the 30's has been owned, sailed and raced (successfully) by the same owner since new in 1978). Many of these boats 27/30/32's have been one or two owner boats passed down within the family. Many are lake sailed, some have reported successful racing accomplishments but in the end there seems to be a large lack of info/interest about these boats; not sure if that is good or bad. The McGregor post drew some spirited replies, the IP has it's fans and passionate enemies, Com-pacers love to talk about their boats, the Nor'sea is the boat of boats, the Hunters are loved by their owners and thatís all that matters. The Helms 27 may just be a well-kept secret, an inexpensive no-name sailboat, 27 footer at a daysailor price? I guess I will make the plunge and sail her until the bottom drops off. I will let you know how she works out.

Helms-27

I was thinking of adding a new boat to my little fleet, she is a 1983 helms-27 with roller furling headsail, 2GM Yanmar, wheel steering, and a very clean interior. Externally she appears to be a nice 27 foot sailboat for the money at $8,500. The problem is that after three days scouring the internet I have not been able to find much info. The little info I found was not bad but just not enough to make an offer.

Can anyone shed some light, any owners out there?

Thanks,
John
