FYS Comments

Designed as an enjoyable yacht to sail, fast upwind and able to plane downwind – the 27.7 is sure to make you smile!

The keel system allows the keel to be raised for motoring and mooring, it is fixed when under sail and gives a low centre of gravity.

A striking looking boat, fun to sail and with simple accommodation.

"Behave" was sold by us new to her present owners.
