Have a friend with one...seems very well built as far as hull and rigging,rudder assembly and the builder didn't seem too cheap with the construction materials except the decks which seem to go soft easily with any rot or they simply arent constructed well. Overall I was rather impressed with the Watkins 27 and it's certainly as roomy as alot of 30-footers with that 10-foot beam. The one my friend has sports the Volvo Penta diesel...not sure of how many horses...
