The Mobile 27.8 Cruiser is a maxi trailerable bluewater cruiser, a single-handler capable of globe-girdling or taking the family up the coast in safety. It shares the amidships sections of the Bruce Bingham-designed Flicka, the world's most successful mini-cruiser. However, the 27.8 has a hollow entrance, a flatter run, cutaway forward profile and more aft buoyancy to support the weight of a loaded cockpit. Hull and decks are 100 per cent hand-laid solid fiberglass lamination. The 27.8 Cruiser's draft gives it lateral plane and increased stability and useful space in the bilge. The deep, "stem of the wineglass" design is one of the reasons for interior space and for comfortable motion. The galley is designed with the cook in mind with an oven or cook top, a deep well sink with pressure water system or hand pump, icebox or refrigerator - only a few of the options available in the interior. Available as a basic kit or more advanced stages of completion.
