For Sale - LM27 'Marguerite £19,450
Sadly, the time has come for us to part with our much loved LM 27, Marguerite. Built in Denmark in 1981 and with only one previous owner, she is an ideal coastal cruising yacht. Robustly made with a canoe stern and a long shallow keel drawing only 1 metre, she goes where many other yachts would fear to venture and crosses river bars at most states of the tide, yet is extremely sea worthy and perfectly capable of crossing the Channel or North Sea. Last summer she took us on a very enjoyable cruise to Holland where her shallow draft allowed trouble-free passage of the inland waterways.
She is Bermudan rigged with roller-reefing genoa and single-line mainsail reefing. The engine is a substantial 26 horsepower Solé diesel (a marinised three-cylinder Mitsubishi). There is tiller steering from the cockpit and wheel steering from the wheelhouse, which also features an opening hatch that allows excellent all-round vision for close-quarter work. There is space for six adults but I often enjoy sailing her single-handed. The wheelhouse provides shelter from rain or breaking waves as well as accommodating the well-appointed galley and fridge. The heads are fitted with a small holding tank. Water is heated either by shore power or when the engine is running, and both hot and cold are electrically pumped. There are dining tables in the saloon and the cockpit, and a full cockpit cover for use in inclement weather. There is a very full inventory (attached).
Marguerite is not a racer, but she sails remarkably well. She is so comfortable to live aboard that we often regard her as a moveable country cottage - and you can't get many of those for £19,450!
