Re: US Yachts

As promised here is my opinion:

Definitely not what I would consider fast but it is easy handle on all points of sail. She likes a beam reach best and 5-6 knot pace is doable.

I have only had real time on small boats as a child but I jumped on board after splash and single-handed her 4 hours to my mooring without incident. That is a testiment to how forgiving these models are....highly recommended

Re: US Yachts

I grabbed a US27 and will post a review of her performance as soon as I launch in the Spring. I will say that the PO reallys seems to have taken good care of the major parts of the boat.
It has the wheel option, 13hp diesel, and a roller furler so I was happy.

Re: US Yachts

I've got a 1981 US27 and I love the way it handles. We're refurbishing the interior, tidying up the teak, and generally bringing it back to it's glory. This one never had an inboard, outboard only. Considering the year that's probably a good thing. It's really easy and simple to just pop a new outboard on the back of her.

I agree, it seems to be a well-built solid boat that I've been really happy with. I can't speak for any of the other boats in the US line, but this one is ridiculously fun to sail. It's a good boat to set up for single-handing as well and tolerates high winds with surprising comfort.

I guess the links don't come out right if done on an Android tablet. Here you go....

Re: US Yachts

I can't speak for the Bayliner Buccaneer version from the same molds, but the US Yacht boats were laid up heavy.

Mine had no blisters at all after years with no bottom job.

Schnool is right, very heavy for their size.

Re: US Yachts

Light construction? Really?
We had a 1981 US 27, and that beast was a pig in the water, tough as nails and heavy as all get out! it wasn't happy unless there were 30 knot winds or more!

To this day I prefer racer/cruisers because that boat was so slow in the water. Granted it had a 13hp Volvo diesel, wheel, and fixed prop (probably the slow portion of this equation)... but darn, last thing I'd call it was light.

Re: US Yachts

My US 25 is for sale with trailer. Swing keel.

You can find lots of info on them here.

We have loved her but moved up to a bluewater boat, 3 boats are too many.
