Broker's Comments

The Varne 27 was described in a PBO Boat Test as "Probably the best secondhand boat you've never heard of".

They went on to say they are " beautifully balanced, close winded and with a motion that could rock you to sleep, clearly designed for weather most people try to avoid".

As you will already have gathered from the details and photographs this one has certainly seen better days and is going to need a lot of attention from the new owner; a project for sure but a worthwhile one for a owner with the ability and time to get her back to former glory!

Note she is a lifting keel version so ideal for exploring the shallow waters of the East Coast.
