Re: Interior Space Cat27vs Ericson27 vs Oday 272
I almost bought an Ericson, well actually did but the seller sold to someone else for an extra $200. I really liked it, and for a 27 foot boat thought it had lots of room. I would think it is better made than either the Catalina or the O'Day. I think the idea of the Pearson 27-2 is worth a look I really like the look of the layout on that boat, but likely at least twice or three times the price of the Ericson or others. By the way the Ericson 27 I tried to by was $2,000 with a low hour diesel and wheel steering (I was going to convert her back to tiller) and in good overall shape, but not perfect.
