Default New 2019 Young 27 Build Thread

Hello THT, I’ve followed a bunch of builds on here and I’m in the process of building a Young 27 with Robb Young so I thought I would start one for anyone that wants to follow.

They are pulling it from the mold next week so I will update the thread as often as I can.

Here are some of the specs:

Young 27
Hull color will be “Sky Blue”
Twin motors will be the new Mercury 225’s – White
Custom half tower – Full seat on the t-top with a “sunroof” that slides open. Similar to what you are seeing on the barker’s and Seahunter.
Power pole, trolling motor (spot lock ), Dual Jack plate
Full head, forward seating w/table insert, aft seating with dual backrest. (aka – The family package)
Llebroc helm seating
White powder coating
Trim tabs, dive platform

Electronis will be Simrad – Twin 12” Evo 3’s and 4G radar.

So far, the build has been super exciting and I’ve been amazed at the customer service from Young. Their staff is top notch and pretty much every special request I’ve asked for has been handled with a “No problem”. Can’t wait to take delivery in early November.

Default Super happy for you

You won’t be disappointed. Robb and crew seem to have only one answer to any special/custom request: “Yes, we can do that.” And then they do.

I'm sure it will be a top notch build. Which lay out did you choose?

We did the forward seating layout and added the removable backrests and the table insert w/cushion.

Going to be sweet! Love the layout of this boat. Curious though...what other builders / boats did you consider and why did you decide on the Young 27?

Short back story, I had a 24 bay for 10 years, bought a new Ranger bay 2510 in early 2017 and loved it and really liked that it could go offshore on very select days. Some of those days turned into "Not so select days" and realized that if I wanted to go offshore more I needed a boat that could handle it. I love taking my family offshore, nothing to do but enjoy each others company - No ipads or electronics! Plus every offshore trip (20-30 miles) was a Friday night call for a Saturday trip. We also go to Islamorada a few times per year and really love getting out in the blue water for Mahi and Tuna.

So essentially I wanted a boat that was 70/30 offshore/inshore and then the ability to add all the things that would entice my wife to allow mew to buy it . I think the Young 27 gives me that ability.

I looked at the Barker, YF 26 Hybrid and the Seahunter 28. The barker seemed more like my ranger as far as size and weight so that didn't check all the boxes, YF was considerably lighter and I wasn't impressed with the fit and finish. I really liked the seahunter but they just seemed overpriced and it drafted more than I would have liked - I think it was around 20". I did a wet test on the YF Hybrid and the Young 27 (With an owner, not Young) 2 days apart. We took the Young out in some slop, nothing I would ever go fishing in personally and it handled so well. We should have been slamming but would come down off a swell like it was on a pillow - We also floated it in 17" of water when we were bringing the boat back to the lift.

The half tower/t-top will be new for Young - It will look similar to what the Seahunter 28's have but I will have a full seat on top of the T-top.



Hopefully I'll have some more pics next week of it coming out of the mold!

You did your homework and the prize will be one awesome boat. Young is a great build/quality boat. If you are doing front seating look at ttopcovers.com for a removable shade top. You will need a forward rod holder that is pointed slightly forward and out on each side. I have one and it gives the extra shade needed up front. I am also a Young owner and have had nothing short of the best experiences with our boat.

Congrats and thanks for sharing the build. Robb and his team are easy to work with and build great boats. Their customer service is among the best in the marine industry.
