27‘ Sailboat For Sale . Condition is Used.
Hi, I am selling my Watkins 27 Sailboat (yanmar Diesel inboard). It is currently on land at the Chesapeake Yachts. One of the main things to mention is that the hull is in perfect shape. Engine was running fine as of last year, I would suggest an oil change though. It got a complete two months long deep clean and is ready to go! Read Less
