Broker Remarks

This LM 27 motor sailor is a well maintained and updated example, she has many upgrades throughout her life, some of these include, cabin heating, pressurised hot water system, galley refit, with new oven, sink & worktops. Other noticeable upgrades are to the navigation equipment, with AIS radar, new wind, log & DSC VHF radio, the standing rigging has also been replaced in 2008 & the starboard side Lewmar winch is electric, there is also a Quick electric anchor windlass. The most recent upgrade is a new genoa in 2017.
The LM 27 has a high-quality finish to it and the sailing performance for a motor sailor is excellent, Yachting Monthly backs this up in a sailing review of this yacht. 
This Lm 27 motor sailor is a clean example, the gel coat is in good order and woodwork is also in good condition, the Bukh 36 hp diesel engine has been fully overhauled in 2006 & very well maintained since.
