Broker's Comments

The Kent 27 is a well regarded sailing and motor craft. They have a robust build quality and good performance, with roomy accommodation and reassuring sea keeping abilities, under both motor and sail. For this size of boat, the cockpit is incredibly spacious, which is a comfortable feature, both at sea and in harbour. Down below the accommodation is spacious, with a separate forward cabin, a roomy head and galley.

This version looks to have been well maintained, with the engine replaced in 2008 and upgrades such as the cockpit enclosure. When I visited the boat, I was impressed by its volume of accommodation, from the cockpit, through to the forward cabin. This boat looks to be a versatile and comfortable cruiser, suitable for longer sea passages, alongside cruising estuaries and some inland waters. With the original solid build and current presentation, this boat has the potential for a range of sailing opportunities. If you would like more information, or to arrange a personal viewing then please contact our office and we will be pleased to help.
