I have an aft cabin Nor'sea. If you want, ask me and I will ty to answer your questions. Might be good to have opinions from different owners.
Thanks @Skipper Jer. They aren't really questions so much as thoughts on how he likes his aft cockpit. There are so few around and I know most people opted for the aft cabin version. BTW, is you boat still for sale and if so do you have a trailer?

Yes we have a triple axle trailer and no she is not for sale at this time. We put her up for sale to buy a bigger boat for extended family trips. But after several conversations and reflection came to the conclusion that when a larger boat was required it would be more economical to charter one rather own one full time. I'm in the process of adding additional equipment to make sailing a bit easier, dodger, roller furler, maybe lead the lines to the cockpit.

there is one in Kansas that may be still for sale. 15K.

I think that's really wise. It's hard to resist stepping up to a larger boat but honestly I think the 27-30 ft is about perfect size. Nor'Sea 27, Baba 30, Shannon 28, Westsail 32 (though a little larger than I'd probably go).

Daniel @Rhapsody-NS27 would you mind PMing me. I don't have enough posts yet to PM you and I had a couple of questions about an aft cockpit Nor'Sea.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. Wife and I were out of town for my birthday and then phone died.

I love my boat. I've been on Skipper Jer's boat once and it's a nice looking boat. I've been on a couple other aft-cabin versions. Every Nor'sea owner seems to love the boat they have and wouldn't trade it for anything. I guess I would agree. While I can see why others like their aft-cabin, I would prefer to stick with the aft-cockpit.

I know a guy who has a Shannon 28. Been on it once to take a look. really nice looking boat.

David, what part of the country/world are you in? Welcome to Sailnet.

Hey Daniel. Happy birthday! I'm in Destin, FL and after 5 years of being without a boat, the bug has come back and bitten me hard. The Nor'sea has always been one of my favorites but I'm wondering if giving up that extra foot or two in width is worth it for the trailerability, which I may never use. BTW I sent you a PM, thanks for getting back with me.

I've always admired the beautiful NorSea 27 but have a question for the owners - how well does this boat point?

Seems like it has generally good numbers, but the draft....
