Broker Remarks

1982 LM 27 £17,500
The well-known LM 27 needs no introduction - this hugely successful and well-built double ender has become a modern classic. A proper little motorsailer with good performance under sail or power. The shallow draft makes her ideal for exploring the creeks and rivers of the East Coast and beyond. This vessel is also fitted with a bowthruster to make handling in the marina easier. This boat has been exceptionally well maintained, and a better example would be hard to find. "Habi" has been copper coated in the past but does have some signs of osmosis in a limited area. This is reflected in the asking price.


Up to four berths in 2 cabins. Interior woodwork is teak trimmed.  The Forecabin has a V-berth which converts to a double, with an infill cushion.
The Saloon area has two settee berths each side of the central folding table. Both of these settee berths can make into double berths if required. Ample storage lockers throughout with additional wine cabinet. Approximately 6'+ headroom Two additional berths in the enclosed wheelhouse. Also, in the wheelhouse is the helm position to starboard with wheel steering, helmsman's seat, engine controls and instrumentation.
To port in the wheelhouse is the well-equipped galley with an opening counter top which reveals the stainless-steel gas cooker The doors leading to the cockpit, can be fully enclosed with the canopy to provide additional living space and there is ample seating for six around the folding cockpit table. Cabin comfort is provided by a Wallas 1800 warm air heating system
