Broker's Comments

It's not often that we get a boat in first class condition, beautifully presented, and at a realistic price to start off with!
This one comes absolutely fully equipped for coastal and cross channel cruising, right down to a new set of cutlery! Her inventory is too comprehensive to list on the site but fax's or photocopies are available to serious viewers. Perhaps a new owner might think a hand held GPS would come in handy, but that's it.
The Leisure 23 is, in my opinion, one of the best little cruisers ever built. On a waterline length of only 20ft she packs in four berths over 6ft and one of 5ft 10". Furthermore, she achieves this without looking like a floating caravan and whilst not the raciest of yachts, with her 47% ballast ratio she is a proper little seaboat.
