I’m selling my 1972 Santana 27 Hull number 193. She’s a simple and solid boat that’s easy to sail on the Bay. The rig’s just a main sail with a headsail on a roller furler. The draft is a little over 4′ so she can access most of the Bay without any worries. She can easily sleep 4 people but could be pushed to 6.

The Santana 27 is a fantastic boat for those looking to gain confidence in their keel boat handling. She is very forgiving underway, is easily balanced, and turns on a dime. I’ve had a lot of fun learning how to balance the sails and reduce weather helm. Tiller steering lets you feel the subtle changes as you adjust the sail trim. Most lines run back to the cockpit, except for the reefing lines.

I’ve been refurbishing the boat for 2 years and have rebuilt almost all of the boats major systems. There are no fancy electronics, just the cabin, running, and steaming lights. The engine runs well, so I haven’t worked on that much other than changing the oil last fall (I only use the engine to get in and out of the dock. No long motoring). Last fall I found corrosion on the mast base, so I took the rig down, stripped it to bare aluminum, repaired the damage, and rebuilt it after a fresh coat of paint. I briefly hauled the boat last month to touch up the bottom paint, change the zincs, and apply antifoul to the prop and shaft. The hull looks good, there is a small keel smile developing (Its pretty common with this model), and the iron keel has some rust (nothing to really do about that), but the keel bolts are clean.

Everything is fully functional and ready to sail there are some cosmetic touch ups that could be added. The cabin interior has mostly been re-varnished and repainted (The pictures don’t do it justice).

I love this boat, but am selling because I’m moving out of the area. I really want to find a good home for her. See below for the list of repairs.
