With its innovative design, the Antrim 27 is the epitomy of race performance for the weekend sailing enthusiast who demands race performance and speed. The Antrim 27 is a stable, upright performer capable of handling a wide range of sailing conditions. It will delight you as a spirited coastal adventurer; or it can be raced with a crew of four or five men or women of any age and experience. The deck-mounted articulating bowsprit allows total cockpit comfort and keeps the interior dry and uninterrupted.
With the Antrim 27, we included some of the great features. The Antrim's retractable keel provides versatility for ramp launching in shallow water areas. And, with a convenient winch that can raise the keel to a draft of just 3'4", the Antrim 27 allows you to venture where shallow water is a concern.
Dry storage and trailering have become a common practice, and at just 2,600 pounds, the Antrim 27 is light and manageable, both on and off the water. Its light weight and the low trailer profile provided by its retracted keel means you can easily tow the Antrim 27 behind most 6- or 8-cylinder passenger vehicles. Smart looks, racer, world-class design and construction take the Antrim 27 to the next level.
