Engine:
The 28hp Volvo engine appears to be original to the craft and known to have had regular servicing. The unit is below the deck, between the Galley and the raised helm position. Access to the fore-part of the engine is with a forward section of the sole (floor) removed - between the Heads and the hanging locker. Access to the gear-box and shaft is similarly by lifting central sections of the deck in the Cockpit - making it easier for maintenance and access to the batteries, etc.
Additional data - for example - the ‘deep-sea’ bearing and seal were replaced in 2010. At the same time, the engine oil and filter were changed, together with a drain down of the fresh water system, and anti-freeze added on the ‘sea-water’ side of the cooling system. The inlet valve for cooling water was re-placed in 2012, followed by the anodes being renewed in March 2013. Both oil & filters were changed in April 2013, - with a diesel additive added at the same time. All external skin fittings (i.e. sea-cocks, etc.) were also inspected and serviced in December 2013. Since that time, the craft has been ashore. With appropriate 'lead time' it is possible to have the engine run, albeit it ashore. - or for the charge of ' a lift to launch and return' can be negotiated.
Hydraulics:
 
Electronics:
2 x 12v batteries are charged by engine alternator, switched for engine start isolation. The engine start battery was replaced 'with new' in 2011. Additionally, a switched and fused '12v electrics panel' for accessories, is also included. A 240vAC 'hook-up' facility was also installed, together
with an appropiate cable. The RCD & 13amp ring main were replaced in Sept 2009. This circuit provides for an electric cabin heater when moored alongside.
Other information:
The LM 27 is one of the most popular of small motor sailers - 'craft- built' by LM Boats Inter'l A/S of Denmark. The accommodation offers a good level of comfort, with 'tailor-made' upholstered cushions for both the Fore- and Main-cabins. Both have upholstered seating and back-rests, doubling as
comfortable sleeping berths. The Main Cabin offers a 'double berth' arrangement. Both Port & Stbd have useful fronted lockers, created 'out-board' of the seating. The Galley is outside of the main accommodation (a requirement by Danish regulations). The generous Cockpit has an over-hang from the cabin construction, for protection of the Helm and Galley. Surveyed for the current owner, all recommendations were carried out, together with a number of improvements - including a 'Copper-Coat' hull application - undertaken in an enclosed workshop in March 2013. At the same time, the hull and superstructure were professionally polished. Since then, the craft has been ashore in the Broker's yard.
A true 'family craft' with the forward accommodation - in V-form - offers a generous twin berth with an infill (included) and cushions. Coming aft a solid door separates the Fore-cabin from the Maiin Cabin, where - to Port & Starboard - the seating has stowage spaces both under and behind the 'back rests'. As a result, a total of 6 persons can be accommodated within the 'fit out'. In the Main Cabin, a table - with hinged extensions- is set in the middle, with seating to both Port and Starboard, sufficient for 'family eating'. Headroom is approx. 6ft. The deck-head has a 'classic' yacht hatch, opening with glazed side and top sections which provide light and ventilation to the accommodation. Forward is the Heads with hand-basin to Port, and a 'hanging locker' to Starboard. This 'well cared-for' craft is with the Broker - ashore at Newhaven.
