  1. I had a Mac27 for 17 years- Matilda. Just perfect as a family boat. Now moved up to a Malin.

  4. Hi there,
    I am on the way to buy a MACWESTER 8.50 dated 1969. As I have no experience in this kind of boats, could anyone tell me how these shallow keel boats perform at sea, expecially in rough weather?
    Many thanks

    • Hi James, I can’t comment on the 27 specifically, but it’s widely accepted that Macwesters are generally sea-kindly boats rather than racing boats. My understanding is that they’re heavily-built compared to more modern boats, which means they don’t bob around on top of the waves; they tend to be more steady and move through waves due to the weight. So for example our 32ft Malin comes into it’s own when it gets a bit windier, when some lighter boats might become less comfortable. The down side is you’re unlikely to win races. Not everyone will agree with this, but that’s my understanding. Hope this helps.
