Yanmar 3GM 27
The solid fiberglass hull incorporates an integrally molded shoal keel, rugged chainplate system, and an inward flanged hull-to-deck joint that’s through bolted with a slotted aluminum toerail on top. The high ballast to displacement ratio makes for a comfortable ride and easy motion in a seaway. The performance cruising keel insures sure tracking and a safe ride. Underneath the long waterline, the rudder is skeg hug. Steerage is positive and responsive to the helm.
“Loon” has a great cockpit layout, making it easy for single-handed sailing or comfortable for a crew of three or more. All halyards, sheets, reefing lines, and vang are led aft through six rope clutches and to four self-tailing winches. The seat backs are surrounded with a wide, flat, beautifully finished teak coaming that’s not only attractive but also functional for seating on a windward reach to improve visibility for sail trim. The T-shaped cockpit, destroyer wheel, binnacle mounted instruments, and teak cockpit table all contribute to a delightful sailing experience.
Another great feature is the molded-in boarding platform and custom stainless steel swim ladder that provide for easy access from dinghy or swimming. There’s also a convenient hot cold water shower located in the cockpit.
The accommodations are luxurious, light and airy. Beginning forward, the master stateroom can be closed off from the main cabin for true privacy. It features an extra-large V-berth (measuring 7” x 6’ 2” at its widest point) with generous stowage beneath. There is also a bureau with a cedar-lined hanging locker and three-drawer storage. Ventilation is great with a large screened hatch overhead, and a screened portlight.
The fully enclosed head with stainless steel sink and shower is aft and to starboard. There’s a portlight and overhead hatch, both with screens. The head has two doors and can be privately accessed by either the main stateroom or the main saloon.
The roomy saloon is open and spacious and includes a radio stereo system. To port is a hanging locker and to starboard, a bulkhead mounted, drop-leaf table that seats six. When deployed, it reveals a novel spirits locker. The saloon features opposing settees. The port settee makes into a single berth, while the starboard settee converts into a double berth. There’s plenty of stowage behind and beneath the settees. Light and air pour through the 5 screened portlights and two overhead hatches.
Aft and to starboard is the Hereshoff-style navigation station and the electrical distribution panel, which includes dual voltage and ammeters to monitor both the 12 volt DC and 120 volt AC systems. Adjacent to the panel is the VHF and stereo. Completing the package is a chart table with stowage beneath.
The guest cabin is situated directly aft and adjacent to the navigation station. There’s standing headroom as one enters and faces the navigation station. There is large quarter berth. For illumination and ventilation there’s a portlight and overhead hatch, both screened; and an additional portlight facing the cockpit foot well.
Aft of the main saloon, on the port side, is the U-shaped galley. In addition to the generous counter space, the galley offers abundant stowage for both provisions and galleyware in the form of drawers, cabinets, fiddles and bins.
“Loon” is a cruising sloop with partial cutter that exhibits superior windward performance. She is seaworthy and particularly swift off the wind. She tracks true and is stable on all points of sail. Her excellent design and construction quality translate into a comfortable and confident feeling, whether sailing on the Atlantic in rough seas or the light to moderate winds of the Chesapeake this Caliber 35 can do it all.
