Dockrell 27 (1987): Sturdy English Cruiser Located on Miami Beach - Asking $8000 USD

Dockrell 27 (1987): Sturdy English Cruiser with Cutter Rig, Completely Stocked Anchored Off Miami Beach.

The Dockrell 27 was designed by Ian Anderson and built throughout the 70s and 80's by Dockrell Yachts of Tavistock. This is a solid blue-water fibreglass boat with an excellent reputation for safety and would be an ideal boat to live-aboard or explore the Caribbean and beyond. The unique British design with a full winged keel and only a 3 foot draft is perfect for inter-coastal cruising and allows passage into shallow harbours that other boats shy away from. This boat is "turn-key" ready and can be sailed immediately, in fact I just completed my own trip from Canada down the east coast of the United States and throughout the Caribbean. Since I purchased this boat I have invested a lot of my own money and time preparing it to sail - so most of the equipment has backups, tools are included, etc. I am selling it because my own adventure is over and I am planning on going back to school in the fall.
