Broker's Comments

This Leisure 23 is an ideal boat for both cruising and pottering about they have a large deep cockpit and surprisingly roomy accommodation for 4 people; the 5ft 7” headroom is pretty good too.
This one has a few cosmetic scratches but overall its original gelcoat still looks pretty good. The interior is tidy with good upholstery and there are no headlining issues; the Leisure 23 has an inner moulding with neatly fitted plywood panels for access.
Appointments to view can be arranged in advance 6-days a week by contacting the Boatshed Essex office direct.
