I know there are owners on this website. I have a US 27 in Texas.

Anyone else out there?

Used to have a 1980 US 29

It was bought new in Orillia Ontario, and sailed on Lake Superior and Georgian Bay by my family for many seasons.
We sold it in the early 90's when our family moved away from a major body of water.
The boat sailed terrifically, and was asthetically pleasing. There were some structural issues due to it's light construction however.

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.

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.

A couple of videos featuring "Windlass", a US YACHT 27, under sail:

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.
