Broker's Comments

WARNING: If you’re the type to fall in love easily, look away now.

You get the ‘feelgood factor’ as soon as you see this super little boat. Based on the popular Leisure 23, the 23SL has a different deck moulding with a wedge shaped coach roof and higher side decks, giving increased headroom. Designed for serious cruising / racing, this boat has ample deck space, a large deep cockpit and surprisingly roomy accommodation for five people.

This example has been extensively and professionally re-designed and modified for racing. The customised alterations include a sugar scoop stern, plumb bow, deep spade hung rudder, lead fin keel and a taller rig. All sheets lead back to the cockpit. The modifications maximise racing performance without prejudicing the sea-keeping ability and ease of handling. She is well balanced and very fast.

She’s a well cared for, well-presented boat – inside and out – with performance and accommodation to satisfy most types of cruising as well as the potential to win races.

These boat details are subject to contract.
