    This C&C 27 (the Mark V) was introduced in the mid 1980s, and it looks quite different from the classic 27 foot model which was built throughout the 1970s (the C&C 27 Mark I, II, III, IV). With an overall length of only 26" 6" (8.1m) the newer model is also considered smaller than the older C&C 27s, which had a LOA of almost 28 feet. In fact, the Mark V has more in common with the C&C 26, which made a brief appearance in the late 1970s, but was phased out of production when it couldn't find its own market niche. It's a good sailing boat that will appeal to anyone looking for a C&C in the under 30 foot range, and which has a slightly more modern appearance than the models that were built in the 1970s.
