Designed by Jim Taylor, the Precision 23 is just another one of the very popular trailerable sailboats offered by Precision Boat Works out of Florida. They are pretty in design and useful in function. Below they have berths for 5 in an airy and open cabin.  There is a galley unit with stove & waste basket.  The head can be stowed beneath the forward berth and the partial main bulkhead with thwart mast support opens up the cabin, but there is a privacy curtain separating the forward cabin from the main salon.  The companionway is super large and there is also a forward deck hatch.  The deck has lifelines as standard. The mast is hinge-stepped on deck for easy raising. The rig is fractional which means the main is large and the headsails are smaller for easier sail handling. The boat is very attractive with keen lines and we’ve never heard a negative word about how she sails or handles.  The keel is shoal draft with a centerboard.  That is a perfect launch and retrieve configuration. The centerboard is heavy enough to stay put for great windward performance, yet easy enough to raise with a rope and your hand (no winch required). With the lead ballasted shoal keel, the boat is self-righting regardless of centerboard position.  The cockpit is large and there is a very big sail locker and fuel tank storage area so you are not stumbling over a gas can.
