FYS Comments

The Vancouver 27 is a great little yacht with an enviable reputation as a blue water cruiser, equally at home coastal cruising. Recent engine & recent standing rigging means she is pretty much ready to go.

‘Charlotte Sound’ has six owners from new and FYS have sold her to four of these. She has been well maintained and is a nice example of the class and well worth viewing.


In this instance Fox’s Yacht Sales are acting as brokers for the vendor.  The vendor has provided the information and whilst we endeavour to ensure the accuracy, the details are believed to be correct but are not guaranteed.  Any prospective purchaser is advised to check the boat specification thoroughly and to employ at their expense a qualified marine surveyor and/or engineer to check the specification and condition of this craft and its equipment.
