Broker's Comments

This little gem will float on a heavy dew, but lower the lifting keel and she’ll tramp off across the oggin leaving you with a view of her rather racy-looking stern, and you’ll be wondering why all boats aren’t made like this. Her Hood in-boom furling main is fully battened, and her furling headsail is brand new for this season. Light, handy, and really rather cheeky, this Swift 23 for sale with Boatshed Port Solent could be the answer to your yachting prayers. Not a great deal of money, she is a great weekender, ample room down below, and some nice design features, decent galley, comfortable berths, the roomiest heads you’ll find on a 23 footer, she has got to be a consideration for a young family. I love the space under the cockpit sole, aft of the companion steps, similar to the Etap 23i, you could put anything there from a dog kennel to an MFO box. What is an MFO box? Ring me and I’ll tell you, but you’ll have to promise to come and view this Swift 23 with lifting keel here at Boatshed Port Solent – and once you’ve seen her you’ll have to buy her, she’ll grab you by the binnacles!
