Notes

Hull # 435-915.
Wheel steering became an option in 1976.
Diesel power became an option in 1978.
Near the end of the Mark III production run, the Yanmar SYP 12 diesel became standard.
Standard keel is keeper than previous versions.
But a shallow draft version was also available. (4.0')
(No boats were ever sold as C&C 27 MK III and it's a designation adopted later.)
