after some further thought in my search for a boat, I've found a C&C-27 that without a doubt is probably the intelligent way to go, instead of buying an old iron keel snail of a boat.

from what i can tell its a MK-3 C&C-27 with the Atomic-4 replace with an 18hp izuzu diesel, 3 blade prop, new paint/buff/wax outside, excellent condition interior, good-to really good sail inventory, pretty much in excellent shape for 7000$

worth while?

what can you say about C&C boats? never sailed one, but they seem to be a pretty high quality boat that holds their own at the yacht club races.

are they tough capable boats? are they racers or cruisers? are they worthy of say, a cruise to alaska from washington? what are their limitations?

Re: C&C-27

The C&C's were racer/cruisers and were well designed and built. The model you are looking at will go to weather very well and will be competitive in any of the PHRF races.
As a cruiser it gets back to who is sailing it but I'm sure the boat can take more than the average sailor. The 27's are designed for lakes and coastal cruising.
