1978 Sloop Allegro 27

Grenada W.I., Grenada

£10,917

The Allegro 27 is an award-winning classic canoe stern design, a capable compact bluewater cruiser built in Sweden to the high standard we have come to expect from Scandinavian manufacturers. ‘Papalagui’ is a delightful solidly built boat, fitted with wind vane self-steering ideal for long passages, and she is well-proven, having sailed across the Atlantic and cruised in the Caribbean. The well thought out interior offers impressive space for her size, with plenty of useful storage and solid teak.
