Broker's Comments

This Leisure 23SL built by Cobramould is an exceptionally nice version it is very well equipped and has clearly been very well looked after. A Survey in 2009 described her as being in remarkably good condition in all respects with no significant defects of any kind and it went on to say that this boat must be considered as one of the best examples of her type.
It does look great the hull is original gelcoat as are the coachroof and decks. The extensive inventory includes a Garmin Chart Plotter and an ICOM VHF DSC that is integrated to the Garmin unit. The Main Sail is virtually new; new upholstery in 2009 and the headlinings in the saloon have been redone etc. etc.
Appointments to view can be arranged in advance 6-days a week by contacting the Boatshed Essex office direct.
