Wooden Ships Comments on this 27′ Bermudan Sloop
Designed and commissioned by a WD Kilroy for his own use and built to a high standard. The present owner bought her in 2005 and he replaced some deck planks – the deck beams were found to be sound. This is a very pretty boat and perfect for weekend sailing or coastal cruising. The owner tells us she sails beautifully and is easily sailed single handed.
