Broker's Comments

Little sweetie this one! Now I don’t like the phrase “great first boat” because boats can be all things to all people. This little Leisure 23 could indeed be a great first boat, but she could also be a great boat for an experienced sailor wanting to take to single-handing, or for a retired person who wants to potter about, or for a youngster who wants to hone his or her sailing skills or for a young family (she can sleep five at a pinch), or for…well anything you like really! All the essentials are there, and the sails are very nice - clean and crisp. I like the large saloon table, I like the decent forecabin and seamanlike quarter berth. For this money, you can get out on the water, and with a fin keel she will slip along very nicely thank you! Come and have a look – viewing is easy, she is in the water and I have the keys handy.
