Broker Remarks

The Halcyon 27 is a well regarded, small, family cruiser from the board of Alan Buchanan. This particular example has been well cared for by the present owners who have refurbished her during their ownership. The topsides have been repainted and the bottom re-epoxied. A new Beta 13,5hp diesel was installed together with new shaft & propeller and new fuel & water tanks. Accommodation for 4 in 2 cabins. Attractively priced and well worth an early inspection.
