MG C27 "Oppertune" - £19750

‘Oppertune’ is now up for sale after 4 years of enjoyment and success. She has been improved greatly since being purchased and now offers any new owner a wonderful choice of both safe cruising and competitive racing. This boat is unique in that she is the tall rig mark two version with a lead keel, with 100kg more ballast and a lower centre of gravity. This makes her lethal to windward in a blow having the equivalent of another two men on the side deck, making her very reassuring as a cruising boat, but incredibly easily driven in light airs.
She was fitted with a completely new, state of the art custom Proctor / Dyform rig in 2013. The design of the mast is significant, as the original Proctor section was, in truth, too light for the boat. The new mast is the same weight, retaining the same fore and aft bend characteristics allowing the same feathering of the main, yet it has had strengthening added in the mid sections stiffening it athwart ships. All halyards are Dyneema. She has a new Selden boom with three reefs and new Selden vang with gas spring and 48:1 adjustable from either side, making reefing child’s play when short handed and fine sail trim. A new lightweight Selden spinnaker pole has also been fitted, with downhaul to both sides.
