This legendary (and rare) unsinkable Offshore 27 has been upgraded with all amenities--all new electronics, upgraded engines, new upholstery! From 2007 to 2016 she was in fresh water. The entire boat has been well maintained by her current and knowledgeable owner. She is clean and a terrific family boat to picnic and overnight. And she offers the speed and stability you need to get where you're going fast while keeping you dry. She comes with her own trailer. She would be well over $200,000 new, and with all the upgrades and new electronics she is a terrific value!
