Review of Sun 27

Basic specs., sailing characteristics.

This section covers widely used rules of thumb to describe the sailing characteristics. Please note that even though the calculations are correct, the interpretation of the results might not be valid for extreme boats.

What is Capsize Screening Formula (CSF)?

The capsize screening value for Sun 27 is 1.96, indicating that this boat could - if evaluated by this formula alone - be accepted to participate in ocean races.

What is Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed?

The theoretical maximal speed of a displacement boat of this length is 6.4 knots. The term "Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed" is widely used even though a boat can sail faster. The term shall be interpreted as above the theoretical speed a great additional power is necessary for a small gain in speed.

The immersion rate is defined as the weight required to sink the boat a certain level. The immersion rate for Sun 27 is about 125 kg/cm, alternatively 705 lbs/inch. Meaning: if you load 125 kg cargo on the boat then it will sink 1 cm. Alternatively, if you load 705 lbs cargo on the boat it will sink 1 inch.

The Sun 27 is a 27.5ft masthead sloop designed by Monk/Perry and built in fiberglass by Spencer Boats Ltd. since 1977.

The Sun 27 is a moderate weight sailboat which is a reasonably good performer. It is stable / stiff and has a good righting capability if capsized. It is best suited as a coastal cruiser. The fuel capacity is originally very small. There is a very short water supply range.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

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.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

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.

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.

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.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

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.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

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.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

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.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

sun yacht 27 sailboat

  • Add to quote

anyone ever heard of sun yachts. someone nearby is selling a '78 27' sun yacht. roller furling, 12 hp yanmar diesel, tiller steering. looked at it very quickly and appears to be in decent shape. my neighbor is looking for a boat this size. just wondering if i should recommend it or not.  

sun yacht 27 sailboat

Wchevron- Are you sure it isn't a Jeanneau... They've used sun in a bunch of their product names... the Sun Fast and Sun Odyssey series for example.  

sun yacht 27 sailboat

Sun Yachts were built by Spencer in BC, they produced the 838 (27'), a 31 footer and after a short time began to market themselves as "SUNSTAR", which are the same hulls with slightly different window treatment. They seem to be reasonable coastal cruisers, plenty of them around here. They have a good amount of space, fairly high freeboard but good headroom. Build quality would be average-to-good, Spencer has been building a lot of semi custom bigger boats for years, (many of which have done extensive ocean passages) so they know how to do it. The 27 is probably on par or better quality wise with a Catalina 27 but is a much bigger boat. The Sunstar 31 is a nice looking boat, actually suspiciously similar to the S2 31 footer. I think that there were many more 27s (8.38s) sold than the 31s. IIRC the 31s were underpowered as standard. Here's a link to a Sunstar 28 (later version of the 27) Does it look similar? Sailboats: 28' Sunstar 28 - Listing #: 2483 As always, get a good survey and check it out. I believe they both used encapsulated ballast rather than bolt on keels, underwater profile is moderate fin and spade.  

faster thanks, it does look similiar but i really need a closer look. the boat is at a business and the owner wasn't around but one of the employees told me it was a sun yacht so i'm not positive it's not a jenneau but the employee said the owner told him the boat was built in washington state which is close to B.C. so i think it might be a sun. thanks for the help, i'm going to let my neighbor know about it. it's been on the hard for a couple of years but the asking price is $5000 but negotiable.  

If in good condition at a negotiable $5K that could be a real deal... If the boat came from the PNW I'm pretty confidant that we're talking about the same boat. Google "SUN 838" or "Sunstar 28" and you should get a few more pics to compare.  

sun yacht 27 I have a sun yacht 27. We believe this one was made n 78. Mine has a manual jib with an 8 hp Yanmar diesel. I'm only a novice sailor but we like it a lot. I agree with others that its well built and probably suitable for coastal sailing. We have had to do very little maintenance so far. We keep it in Puget Sound. Like you, I'm thrashing around for specifications. I was told the boatyard was in Bellingham Wa. and it folded years ago. We were also told their was some link to Reinell which was another local boatyard, but again; not sure. Take a close look and get a pro to do a survey. Regards  

I have been looking over one for a while now here in ONtairo Canada. I know it is a SUN 28 and I did manage to get some specs etc from Spencer Yachts.. So if anyone would like me to make a PDF for you.. let me know. Also Faster made a good post in this thread to me last year http://www.sailnet.com/forums/boat-review-purchase-forum/17744-27-sun-sloop.html Yes I would agree $5000 is very fair.. boats this size and build go for $10+ out here.. but because it is little known and hard to get info.. you get a deal. James  

Well no one has posted here again. Den98028.. would you be willing to share some pics of your boat? chainplates? engine compartment, galley, head, your electrical area? I am close to taking the one I am looking at.. it is a fixer upper.. but with a good hull (not cored I understand) a deck that might have 1 soft area, and a good rig with 6 sails, I think this is worth getting into. I have a fair amount of info on this boat now for those that are looking. Wchevron.. what ended up with the one you were looking at?? I have seen some excellent examples of these boats. Mine looks like it has been fresh water, and it came from the Ohio area before getting out east (LAke Ontario) to me.. Anyone want to discuss this boat more? James

Well thanks for the post mitiempo. For those with these boats, it would be nice to get some information exchanged etc. Sailnet is easy to use is already up and lets be honest there really is not enough of these boats to get an honest to goodness association going. What did people do about your windows? Anyone give me suggestions on gasket material to back the plexiglass? or did you use caulking? or what did you do? James  

biker1bob, Dang, it's been a few years. I took the windows out, got the frames powdercoated and installed smoked plexiglass. Since it's not a bluewater boat, I decided against anything more expensive. But I didn't install the glass in frame. I DID caulk the crap out of the window/cabin install. I'm a novice myself and ask a bunch of questions about what to use. I think I ended up using sikaflex which is supposed to be pretty bulletproof. are the pdf's still available? ps. most of the stuff I've read about sunyachts seems to jive with what I've learned about mine (1978 27' - HAD a yanmar ysb8 but salt water ate a hole in the head)  

I also have a Sun 27. I have removed all of the headliner and most of the cabinets in my mildew eradication program. Of course the head and it's smelly hoses were the first things to go (the porta potti has only been used once in three years of heavy boat use) with the giant head cabinet. Water that seaps in from the chainplates, windows, handrails... was getting caught in between the overhead and the headliner hiding leaks. The vinyl came out pretty easy but the foam that was glued to the hull was a bigger problem. Now that it's all gone and the interior has been painted the boat smells fairly neutral. Taking out the engine and putting an outboard on helped with interior smell, noise and vibration. Only the turning circle was adversly effected. When I want an oil change I place the motor in the back of my pickup and bring it to the mechanic. Overall we like this boat for general use, ours is quite a bit lighter without the inboard and all the cabinets and crap inside, we have no problem going 6.5 knots under power and full throttle pops it over 7. 13 knots with the current under the Narrows Bridge. If you use your boat as a boat and spend most of the time outside the wide sidedecks are about as good as I've seen in a lower priced 27 foot cruiser.

Here's some stats: Sun 27 Sun 28 Designed by Robert Perry.  

sun yacht 27 sailboat

It sure looks like Perry's Islander 28. Geo.  

I have a 1978 Sun 27 Some were made near Belligham and some near Vancouver. They came with outboard, 1 cyl. Yanmar , and 2 cyl. Yanmar. Similar to a Catalina27 but much heavier built. They were NOT designed by Perry but by the young Monk. Perry drew the lines for the bow and stern for Monk who rented the first floor of Perry's little building in Seattle. I've had my boat for about 19 years or so. very sturdy and does well in the storms I've been caught in. Very well designed living space with an offset entrance. A good boat for the price. A few things I added, handholds inside the cabin. I have a 20GM Yanmar in mine now, and a Campbell 12 inch prop. Does well in the Northwest.

Savvino-storozhevsky monastery and museum.

Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery and Museum

Zvenigorod's most famous sight is the Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was founded in 1398 by the monk Savva from the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, at the invitation and with the support of Prince Yury Dmitrievich of Zvenigorod. Savva was later canonised as St Sabbas (Savva) of Storozhev. The monastery late flourished under the reign of Tsar Alexis, who chose the monastery as his family church and often went on pilgrimage there and made lots of donations to it. Most of the monastery’s buildings date from this time. The monastery is heavily fortified with thick walls and six towers, the most impressive of which is the Krasny Tower which also serves as the eastern entrance. The monastery was closed in 1918 and only reopened in 1995. In 1998 Patriarch Alexius II took part in a service to return the relics of St Sabbas to the monastery. Today the monastery has the status of a stauropegic monastery, which is second in status to a lavra. In addition to being a working monastery, it also holds the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Belfry and Neighbouring Churches

sun yacht 27 sailboat

Located near the main entrance is the monastery's belfry which is perhaps the calling card of the monastery due to its uniqueness. It was built in the 1650s and the St Sergius of Radonezh’s Church was opened on the middle tier in the mid-17th century, although it was originally dedicated to the Trinity. The belfry's 35-tonne Great Bladgovestny Bell fell in 1941 and was only restored and returned in 2003. Attached to the belfry is a large refectory and the Transfiguration Church, both of which were built on the orders of Tsar Alexis in the 1650s.  

sun yacht 27 sailboat

To the left of the belfry is another, smaller, refectory which is attached to the Trinity Gate-Church, which was also constructed in the 1650s on the orders of Tsar Alexis who made it his own family church. The church is elaborately decorated with colourful trims and underneath the archway is a beautiful 19th century fresco.

Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral

sun yacht 27 sailboat

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is the oldest building in the monastery and among the oldest buildings in the Moscow Region. It was built between 1404 and 1405 during the lifetime of St Sabbas and using the funds of Prince Yury of Zvenigorod. The white-stone cathedral is a standard four-pillar design with a single golden dome. After the death of St Sabbas he was interred in the cathedral and a new altar dedicated to him was added.

sun yacht 27 sailboat

Under the reign of Tsar Alexis the cathedral was decorated with frescoes by Stepan Ryazanets, some of which remain today. Tsar Alexis also presented the cathedral with a five-tier iconostasis, the top row of icons have been preserved.

Tsaritsa's Chambers

sun yacht 27 sailboat

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is located between the Tsaritsa's Chambers of the left and the Palace of Tsar Alexis on the right. The Tsaritsa's Chambers were built in the mid-17th century for the wife of Tsar Alexey - Tsaritsa Maria Ilinichna Miloskavskaya. The design of the building is influenced by the ancient Russian architectural style. Is prettier than the Tsar's chambers opposite, being red in colour with elaborately decorated window frames and entrance.

sun yacht 27 sailboat

At present the Tsaritsa's Chambers houses the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum. Among its displays is an accurate recreation of the interior of a noble lady's chambers including furniture, decorations and a decorated tiled oven, and an exhibition on the history of Zvenigorod and the monastery.

Palace of Tsar Alexis

sun yacht 27 sailboat

The Palace of Tsar Alexis was built in the 1650s and is now one of the best surviving examples of non-religious architecture of that era. It was built especially for Tsar Alexis who often visited the monastery on religious pilgrimages. Its most striking feature is its pretty row of nine chimney spouts which resemble towers.
