Libra is currently on a 4 to 6 month cruise from the Annapolis, Maryland area to points Northeast.  My wife, myself and our 85lb Labrador, all from Seattle, are spending the summer exploring the East Coast and found the C&C 27 was the perfect boat for it.  Offshore capable with her 2.08 capsize ratio and 4’ 3” keel, she is also small enough to explore almost any inland waterway and with her 18.46 sail area to displacement ratio, she can do it under sail.  Libra is proving to be a very capable and comfortable boat for 2 adults and one dog on a 4 to 6 month cruise.  She has sailed to weather in 30 knot blows plowing through 4 to 5’ seas like she was born to do it and, she has ghosted across the sounds with her 170% genoa up still moving along at over 5 knots.  She is offered for sale at a very competitive price knowing about the many items that have been upgraded on the boat, her pedigree, and the steady working diesel sipping Westerbeke diesel motor.  Comparable boats are listed at well over $10,000 throughout the Great Lakes, Canada, and the NE.  Her decks have had the non-skid redone (June 2012), many of the items being re-bedded and all is in working order.  Her light blue hull has a few scratches from her years of service, but it is nothing a little filler and easy-epoxy couldn’t fix and leave Libra in bristol condition. 

Let us know your interest in Libra and we’ll let you know where you can find her or let us know where to deliver her.  Libra is available anytime after July/August time frame.  We are open to unique offers/trades or ideas/deliveries on this sale.

Starting in the bow is the anchor locker with hawser pipe for rode.  Next aft is the forepeak bunk 6’ 3”, plenty of room for two adults.  Shelf storage space runs down both sides of the forepeak.  The Middle V board is removable and underneath is a partially enclosed boot storage area.  The forepeak cushions are original but serviceable.  Under the forepeak bunk forward is a good size storage area followed by the 36 gallon FRP water tank followed by the 6 gallon holding tank to port.  Starboard under the bunk is open for storage.  There is a folding door to close off the forepeak from the Head area.

Aft of the main bulkhead to starboard is the long salon bunk running fore and aft with a large storage shelf behind the seat back.  Ample storage is under this bunk with the center storage area being molded into the seat to keep items from resting against the hull and possibly in bilge water.  There is a lee cloth under the bunk that connects to the handrails on the cabin top.  Headroom is 6’ 2” in this area.  To Port is the Dinette table that drops down easily into a double bunk. There is storage under both seats and a storage shelf along the wall under the deck.  The Salon cushions have been replaced and are a royal blue color. 

Next aft, behind two half bulkheads, to Starboard is the Galley Stove with new counter tops replaced 2012.  2 burner stove up front with ample dish storage behind, drawer under stove with large cabinet storage below the drawer.  Then looking aft across the back of the cabin is the Stainless Rectangular sink with foot pump fresh and salt water with DC panel behind sink.  Centered on the companion way is shelf space with Stereo, VHF, Fire Extinguisher and Battery switch mounted along this area.  To Port is the large well insulated top loading icebox with sliding bin.  Outboard of the icebox is a large dry storage area.  Along aft wall is the new, 2012, Bluesea shore power breaker panel.

Interior manual bilge pump is located under the starboard bunk aft, accessed from in the salon.  Exterior manual bilge pump is located in the cockpit floor.  The cockpit has ample storage under both seats w/ motor under companionway and fuel tank out of the way on the forward edge of the starboard lazerette.
