FYS Comments

The First 27.7 is a striking looking boat that is both quick upwind and down. “Shazam” has both asymmetric and symmetric spinnakers and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face! With the benefit of a lifting keel for flexibility when motoring and mooring she is a well thought out boat.

“Shazam” has clearly been very nicely looked aftewr and is presented extremely well with a fresh coat of racing antifouling and a recent engine service – absolutely ready for the water in 2021. She is a well known boat localy where the current owners have cruised and club raced her, thoroughly enjoying every minute. She is only for sale as the owners are moving up to a larger yacht.
