1979 Watkins 27

  • I refit this boat to live aboard and single hand in the Gulf and Caribbean. The Fickle Finger of Fate has intervened. This is a Watkins with a hand laid up hull and shoal draft keel, well equipped, and maintained; one of the original pocket yachts with amazing room in the cabin and cockpit. The standing rigging is in good condition, and is a full size larger than usually found on a boat this size. The running rigging is recent and seaworthy. Sails are all in good condition; main has two reefing points; 150% genoa and 90% yankee are hank on. Halyards route to cockpit if desired. Sail covers are recent in good condition. One each CQR and Danforth anchors with chain and nylon rode. Forward storage under V berth has been converted to a baffled water tank that will hold up to 100 gallons. Enclosed head has a recent Jabsco 2000 marine toilet; 15 gal holding tank. Galley has a Tundra AC/DC fridge, AC microwave, Origo 4000 alcohol range, and stainless sink with pressure pump that extends to cockpit for fresh water shower. Nav station has Uniden MC535 VHF to masthead antenna, Standard Horizon HX470S multiband handheld, Garmin GPS 125,and Uniden QT206W sounder. A Simrad TP10 Tillerpilot is set up for all weathers and angles of heel. Auxiliary is a Yanmar YSM-12R in great condition with new starter, high cap alternator, raw water pump, belts and hoses, filters, and an aux electric bleeder pump. Stuffing box is in good shape, as is three bladed prop. If you can sail, I'll check you out; if you can't sail, I'll teach you. Delivery negotiable. This is a fine, seaworthy vessel, and if you look closely you'll see a big crocodile tear on my cheek.
