|"Calenture" a Knoop 27 is a fine example of these respected (and sought after) Wally Knoop designs. Easy to handle by two (or one). Safe, strong and sea worthy. Ideal for cruising the Channel or the Tassie East Coast. These outstanding little boats are still competitive club twilight racers.
Down below the generous beam plus the well designed layout make for a roomy and comfortable saloon. The spray-dodger and cockpit surround curtains ensure a comfortable and dry cockpit. All sail controls lead back to cockpit for safe short handed sailing.
"Calenture" is well built and in excellent condition. Last surveyed for insurance in December 2014. A copy of this report, a record of maintenance work and upgrades undertaken since April 2012 (valued at over $11,000) and copies of invoices are all available on request.
