Description Nutmeg is a 27’ Ericson looking for a new Captain.
Gorgeous boat with many upgrades in 2019 and 2020!
Mast inspected, new rigging lines, new batteries, new solar panel battery charger, electric bilge pump, new professionally done steering cable mechanism, new safety lines, professionally inspected and tuned shrouds, comfortable seating, gas grill, very spacious cabin, pull out eating table, comfortably sleeps 5, rebuilt fuel tank- professionally done, cockpit cushions, cabin cushions, 2 anchors, main sail cover, rolling furler, sail bags for main jib, freshly painted bottom, new zinc, no damage to hull or body
The boat was well built and well cared for. Shrink wrapped every winter after entire system is winterized. Great sailing season, but I am moving to a bigger boat. READY TO SAIL AS IS OFF MOORING TO NEW HOME.
If interested call me on my cell 732-7404495 or email at email@example.com
Equipment: EQUIPMENT Compass, 2 new marine batteries, battery charger, electric bilge pump, solar charger, solar panel, radio, boom vang, head/jib sail, furling jib, mainsail, gas stove, sink, cockpit table, cushions, emergency tiller, fenders, flares, lifelines, 1 anchor, anchor chain, 1 backup anchor, Universal atomic 4 diesel engine
The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
The ERICSON 27 was one of this builders most popular models with more than 1200 built.
Inboard power and wheel steering (with ‘T’ shaped cockpit) were options.
I: 34.50’ / 10.52m
J: 11.25’ / 3.43m
P: 30.00’ / 9.14m
E: 10.00’ / 3.05m
Tot. SA (100%): 344.06 ft2 / 31.96 m2
