Cox 27

Cox Marine produced an eclectic range of boats in the 1970s and 1980s, and is best remembered for its small, tubby, long-keeled motor-sailers. The Cox 27 has fi ve berths: two in the forecabin, two in the raised deck saloon and a single quarterberth. The small rig gives her modest sailing performance, while engines of 33 or 44hp are more than adequate for motoring at 7 knots. They were generally well built.
