We have a 2000 model NorSea 27. The last two winters we have spent three months in the Florida Keys for a total of six months living aboard. We now have decided that we need more room if we are going to spend a lot of time on our boat. My wife is little but I am over 6'2" and 225 lbs and am finding the NorSea uncomfortable, 8' beam and inadequate headroom. The NorSea does not provide room for guests which is a bit of a problem for us. I first sailed a NorSea in 1980 and always felt they are great boats, still feel that way, they sail well and are very seaworthy but, I'm getting old and want more comfort. We trailer the boat from Iowa to the Keys which, requires a large pick-up (F350 diesel). If you are on the water the cost of tow vehicle and trailer are not an issue but should be considered if not.
The boat is currently on the market in Annapolis, MD and when/if it sells we will move up to a PS Crealock.
