The Shaw 27  

November 27, 2012. Alden Harris (Schipperke) sent in a Craigslist ad link to a Shaw 27 for sale in Los Angeles. This is an interesting historical tidbit. Bill Shaw has his fingerprints on the Shaw 24, the Dolphin 24, the Mermaid 24 (a wood Dolphin 24) and the Tartan 27 - sometimes called a big Dolphin (standing headroom!) When Bill Shaw left Sparkman & Stephens in 1961 he went to work in Hong Kong for a company building custom yachts. The boat in the Craigslist ad was built there and has a familiar look - a big Shaw 24, with 6' headroom!

Beautiful wood sloop built by American Marine in Hong Kong. American Marine built all of the Grand Banks trawlers and this boat is of equivalent quality. Hull is strip planked mahogany construction. 11HP Universal diesel engine. Needs some work but it is structurally and cosmetically good and ready to sail. I am looking for a caring owner for this classic woody. Send email with contact information if you would like more details.
