This amazingly fast Santa Cruz 27 Keelboat is ready to go race. Designed by Bill Lee, the SC27 is a high PHRF boat and will rate about 25 IOR or about 29 CCA, the rating system currently used by MORC. This may seem high for a 27-foot boat until one considers that a rating is simply a speed prediction and that a well-designed fast boat such as this will have no trouble winning her fair share under either rating system.
Our Santa Cruz 27 represents a superior investment in a racing boat. Her 8-foot beam allows her to be easily trailered, and her 3000-lb displacement allows her to be launched from larger yacht club hoists. As she is not designed specifically to a rule, she will not be obsoleted by rule changes.
All standing rigging was replaced in 2013 and Slingshot is a phenomenal boat that is a ton of fun to sail! She is well equipped with a Raymarine Electronics package and 6 hp Evinrude outboard.
