    WANTED - E27-E32 any year - SOCAL Area

    Hey guys!

    Looking for an Ericson 27ft to 32ft (1970s-1990s) sailboat in okay condition. I would love to find a boat that has a running engine, solid hull, and dry bilge. I don't mind fixing cosmetic issues. I am a young sailor looking to get my first boat. I have chartered for the past season but have decided that i would like to go farther with something i can call my own. I take a lot of pride in ownership. If you are, or know anyone, selling a solid Ericson in the SOCAL area (I am in LA) please let me know!

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Too big? Too much?

    Chris,

    Please let me know if this might fit your needs. I'm willing to work on price.

    Hi MMLOGAN,

    Thank you for posting this. You have a beautiful boat but sadly our price ranges are a bit too far. Its also a bit bigger then i am comfortable with single handling.

    I understand

    I can work on the price but I'm hesitant to work on the length.

    Best of luck with your hunt.

    Ericsons are truly great boats. Don't give up.

    1974 Ericson 27

    Hey Chris,

    I have a 1974 Ericson 27 in King Harbor that you may be interested in. I am looking to upgrade to an E38-200 or an E-35.

    Within the past two years I have:

    - New Main and 135% Genoa in January 2016
    - Bottom Painted in January 2016
    - New Head and all Seacocks replaced in May 2016
    - Head Gaskets changed, fuel tank refinished, new sparkplugs, in July 2016
    - 1 Starter Battery, 3 House Batteries (forgetting full AMP spec)
    - 30W Solar Panel to keep batteries fresh on Catalina.
    - New Stuffing Box in October 2016
    - New Raymarine i70 Wind, Depth, Speed Transducers

    She does however have a Palmer p-60 gasoline engine which are a bit on the rare side. All major work has been done... exhaust, gaskets, ect. It runs fantastically, pushing to catalina several times each year and starts right up, even on cold mornings.

    I was planning on putting the 27 on the market later this year, but if you are interested I am happy to run down to the boat and take a few pictures.

    prsmith - I am very interested!

    Just a couple of questions:

    Does it have a fresh water tank? I know some of these didnt come stock with them and were added later

    How are the through hulls when you pulled it to be painted? Any blisters?

    Do you have the engine hours?

    Dry bilge?

    Dry boat?

    Transferrable slip?

    Does it have an auto pilot?

    Is it the original rigging?

    Also, do you mind Private messaging me the price you plan to sell it at?

    It might help if you could also give a range of price you are prepared to pay. Also, it's usually better to pay a little more for a boat that's been very well maintained, rather than paying less for one that hasn't and then doing all the project work and replacements to get her fixed up, unless you are very handy and can afford to spend time on it.

    Good luck!

    That is a great idea - Thank you!

    I am looking for an Ericson between 27-32 (will go up to 35 if price works) feet. Looking for a boat that doesnt need much for her to be out on the water in the bay. I am open to any year and any configuration. I am willing to spend up to 15,000 for the perfect boat.

    A little about me - I am a young sailor in my late 20s. The boat will be used for honing my skills as i prep for my sail to Hawaii in 3 years. Shoot - if the boat is up for it i might take her for the 3000 mile journey. Eventually this will lead to my circumnavigation. I have been searching for the past 8 months with little luck. I am hoping this forum will be my gateway to the perfect ericson for me.

    I am located in SOCAL. I would prefer the boat to be within a couple hour drive but i am open to boats outside that area for the right price.

    Thanks!
    Chris
