The Danish LM 27 has long been probably the world’s most successful small wheelhouse sailing cruiser, with over 1,500 built since the designs introduction in 1975. First built in Denmark, the moulds later came to the UK when LM ceased building yachts and started to manufacture blades for wind turbines. The hull lines and robust construction owe much to the traditional Scandinavian “Colin Archer” sailing lifeboats, although the originals of these designs, long regarded by many as the epitome of seaworthiness, are rather larger. For such a small motor-sailer, with bluff bow and long shallow keel, the sailing performance is remarkably good. When introduced, Yachting World reported that, “she sails surprisingly fast”, and Yachting Monthly said, “Can she sail? Undoubtedly this one can, in a very satisfactory way” This one has benefitted from the following: a refurbished fresh water system, new anchor chain, new engine sea cock, new VHF aerial, revamped starter circuit, new wheelhouse window covers, windows re-sealed, new clock, barometer & thermometer, toilet overhauled and new interior LED lights.
