Displacement: 2450 KEEL: Shoal w/Centerboard
Designed by Jim Taylor, the P-23 is considered to be one of the most popular trailerable boats around.  With the shoal draft fixed keel and centerboard, hinged mast step and kick up rudder, the boat is super easy to launch and retrieve off a normal ramp, and then step the mast and rig the boat, all in just minutes.  The lead ballasted shoal keel provides self-righting safety regardless of the position of the board, which can be raised and lowered by a single hand line.  No winches required.  The large cockpit is self-bailing and has a huge sail locker to starboard and a fuel compartment to port, which is sealed off from the cabin for safety and smell free use as well as tucking it out of the way so you are not tripping over it.  The mast is easily stepped and the side stays are inboard so that you can get a tighter sheeting angle for upwind sailing efficiency. And it makes it easy to head to the bow where you will find an anchor locker.  Below there is sleeping for 5 tall people, a head and a galley unit.  The best thing about this boat besides the fabulous use of interior space, is how well the boat performs on points of sail.  This boat is well cared for and looks like new. During the summer  it always has been on a lift and during the winters stored inside, but the current owner never sailed the boat due to health issues, so he is forced to sell.  3 owner boat – always fresh water.
