Anyone know what the approximate hull weight of a 1986 27 foot cuddy?

Center console w/cuddy cabin is 4200#
Whaler 27, traditional cabin is 4520#
Whaler 27, Full Cabin is 5235#

These are all 10' beam models.

The new 8-6 beam "270" Outrage is 5160#

Thanks for the prompt reply, is that committed to memory, or do you have another source?

Straight from my 1986 & 1987 catalog collection! Also, in case you are thinking about buying new, a Commercial Products 27 Guardian center console model is 4500#, and is about $60,000. I believe.

I might add the 27 ccc is one darn solid boat. We have one we brought north from Florida (1400 miles mostly on the ICW)and have used her in the Delaware Bay her performance even with twin 200hp Yams '87 motors is outstanding. She is like a sports car where the cabin models are more like SUV's.

You can find used '86 through '88 cuddy cc for between a low which needs some work or could use repowering in the $25,000 to as high as $40-$45,000 if pristine with relatively recent engines --- they're just not easily trailered because of the 10' beam.

PS our 27ccc is for sale and the price reflects some work she needs and repowering even though the Yams are strong engines but we have to be realistic.

Does your boat have a Whaler drive? A trailer? What would you take for it? Are the engines still running strong? Any pics you could send?

Another question, is the 27ccc a Center Console Cuddy? I have any looked a one like this and it seemed that the space to the right, left and forward between the CC and the Cabin was not all that usefull. While there was a seat in front of the CC, when sitting you can't see over the sides. How many different 27 models did Whaler make in the mid to late eighties?

Lewis you can see our boat here and here

I do have a few more shots available if the above still interest you please post interest and I will email you the information and pricing. No trailer since to move the boat intrastate or interstate you need a heck of a tow vehicle but more importantly permits for extra wide loads. Just not practical in my mind.

There were a couple of variations on the console, ours has the deluxe wide with electronics cabinet plus the forward locker seat set up (the gals like the seat because it gets them out of the wind).

The Yams are running just fine compression excellent and a year ago had both lower unit s seals redone (my shop said they were amazed the excellent condition of the lower units, shift shafts and drive line looked almost like new for 13 year old engines).

The early 27 ccc's were offered with standard outboard transom setups (highly recommended) or the OMC Sea drives the Whaler Drive was not introduced until late '87 on early '88 models I believe. The Whaler drive does not enhance the performance of the 27's according to my BW sources to the contrary it actually detracts slightly. Anyway that's an opinion which I am sure could be debated.
