Broker's Comments

The Leisure 23 is a tough, well built and well designed pocket cruiser capable of coastal passages and more in the right hands. Indeed, at least one has made the North Atlantic circuit and this voyage featured some years ago in Yachting Monthly. I remember it well since at the time I owned a Leisure 23 myself and with my wife and three young teenage children we had some wonderful adventures in her, thoroughly exploring our pembrokeshire coastline and offshore islands. We might not have got as far as some but we did get to Devon and Lundy.
This is the later SL model which offers wider side decks (a definite plus) and slab reefing. She'd make a great first boat for a family who wish to cruise.
