"Shinook" is a 27 foot cruising yacht with deep safe cockpit, shallow draft, long keel with winged base and inboard Volvo Penta engine. Her keel ballast ratio makes her very stable and an ideal choice for those with a young family wishing to get into yacht ownership. She can sleep 4 in comfort over two cabins and has a separate heads compartment with sea toilet. Galley is adequate and features a two burner gas hob with grill and a 12V ice box for perishables.

These include a colour chart plotter, wind speed/direction, VHF and a deck mounted life raft. Below decks is in super condition with recent varnish to woodwork.
Below decks is bright and airy thanks to the double saloon doors, large port lights and deck hatch. The headlining is easy clean GRP with teak battens. The interior joinery is teak and mahogany faced ply which has been recently varnished and in super condition.
There is a galley to port with slide out 2-burner hob and grill. Small sink with foot or 12V pumped fresh water and a coolbox with lid. There is a 12V fridge fitted where the hanging wardrobe is, so this can be removed if the space is needed.
