27' SeaCraft SeaMaster Brochure
The SeaCraft 27' was a Fly Bridge Cruiser, boasted of 6'1" standing headroom in the cabin, V-Berths, skylighted forward cabin, a convertible dinette, a complete galley area and a fully enclosed stand-up head. It was detailed with Burma Teak trim throughout.
The need for a larger boat had become evident as the company was growing and there was demand by the offshore fisherman. In 1967, the SeaCraft 27' SeaMaster was designed and went into production.
The original design and manufacturing included using stern drives. Unfortunately, the stern drives received a poor reputation in larger boats which curtailed the sales effort on this ocean-going boat. The backup power of twin Chrysler engines with Vee drives was mixed when the first 3 of the 4 Vee drives failed. Eventually, the boat was powered with twin 160hp Mercruisers.
The original hull plans incorporated the possibility of lenthening the hull up to 30'.
