Shortly after the 35 was introduced, C&C unveiled the 27, which proved to be the company's most popular model, which nearly 1,000 produced. It went through four "Mark" versions, and replaced the model -- the 26 -- that was created to replace it. It shared many of the 35's admirable qualities. Most notable were its phenomenally solid construction and incredible stability. It was not an outstanding performer upwind, but was a great reacher, which suited cruisers just fine. All in all, a terrific cruiser that still attracted a racing following.

Mark I: Hulls 1 to 215 were produced from 1970 to 1972.

 The Mark I's had the slightly shorter hulls, and the shortest rigs with two side shrouds, (one lower and one upper). Their mainsail travellers were aft in the cockpit. They all had tillers, and Universal Atomic 4 gas engines. A few of the very first hulls were built under licence by Hinterhoeller Yachts.
