That's a very different style of boat to a FC8. Not so much a move "up" as "sideways" I'd say.

You don't generally see new cruiser/racers of that size being raced in the Solent so I can't comment on racing performance. People typically either buy smaller sportsboats or bigger cruiser/racers.

Yachts and Yachting magazine tested the 27.7 a while ago. If you are a subscriber you can access the test by clicking here.

Or you can purchase the test by clicking here.

Hope this helps.

they have a harder IRC than the (superior) Laser 28.  Nice enough design idea but proabbly hard to get going to it#s number compared to the Laser/redforx 28 which is a darn site cheaper budget for just as much fun

 

Thought the 27,7 had an inboard?

 

slower than a FC 8.

 

One managed to get passed us in the B25 Platou because of a broach. ( an alternative day racer if you race in mixed fleets with 4 or 5 onboard)
