Broker's Comments

A beautiful example of the Elizabethan 23, owned in total for 18 years by the current owner she really is a lovely boat. Classic lines and true sailing performance. She has sailed to Ireland, Portugal and the channel islands providing admiring glances wherever she has been. I would strongly recommend a viewing.
