Broker's Comments

Freeman quotes that this model is "Cheap to run and mechanically reliable with good spares available"

This boat looks and smells as though its just came out of the factory, the woodwork is superb and stowage everwhere. I must admit that this boat is very well cared for and I will give full credit to the owner. I understand that from new this boat has only had 4 owners and the current owner still has the original sales brochure and all the documents.

I would say that you would be very had pressed to find another 23 in this quality condition and a viewing is strongly recomended as you will not be disapointed.
