1978 Hunter 27' Fixed Keel

Oriental, North Carolina, United States
$7,900 USD

The Hunter 27 is a very good sailing boat of the famous Cherubini design.”SallieGee” is  the perfect boat for weekend cruising and gunk-holing around the rivers and sounds of eastern NC. She is a great starter boat.The owner has been sailing with family or single handing her for a few years and is ready to go up a few feet. She is equipped with a reliable Yanmar diesel and features a roller furler jib for ease in handling. Great starter boat. Big enough to be stable and with comfortable-standing headroom. The inboard Yanmar diesel makes “SallieGee” reliable and safe.

Don’t let the year fool you, this is one clean well maintained Hunter that will bring you and your family many years of enjoyment!

She has recently received many new upgrades in 2015 including:

  • Pressure water with new pump and fixtures!
  • New mast wiring, navigation and spreader lights!

Calculations

Hull Speed
6.6 kn
Classic: 6.29 kn

Hull Speed

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.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A 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

6.63 knots
Classic formula: 6.29 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
15.0
<16: under powered

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

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.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
15.0
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
42.9
>40: stiffer, more powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

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.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

42.87
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
292.9
275-350: heavy

Displacement / Length Ratio

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.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
292.89
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
23.6
20-30: coastal cruiser

Comfort Ratio

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.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
23.55
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
1.9
<2.0: better suited for ocean passages

Capsize Screening Formula

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.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
1.93
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising

Notes

Shoal draft/wing keel: 3.25’, Disp. 7200 lbs.
Later boats were available with Yanmar diesel.

Tall Rig:
I: 37.50’/11.43m
J: 11.30’/3.44m
P: 32.30’/9.85m
E: 9.30’/2.83m
Total (100%): 362 ft2/33.63m2
