Precision 23, 1989

1989 P23 in really good shape with a roller furling jib,

  • main rigged with lazy jacks and halyard led back to the cockpit to make it easy to raise and lower the sail (can even do it singlehanded).
  • There is a boom vang to aid controlling sail shape.
  • The keel pivot pin was replaced by previous owner and keel comes up and down with ease and has no slop.
  • This needs no work or attention.
  • All the SS rigging is in good shape as are the sails.
  • There is a cockpit bimini if you want it on, and I got a new matching color mainsail cover last year.
  • There are also excellent condition cockpit cushions.
  • It has a very well running Tohatsu (Nissan) 8hp 4 stroke outboard with either electric or pull start with a 3 gal tank that sits under the portside cockpit seat.
  • That outboard also has an alternator so when it is running it charges the battery.
  • I changed the water pump impeller and the engine oil recently so it is already to go.
  • There is an ICOM VHF radio with mast mount antenna, and a depth finder I bought last year which I mounted inside the hull, siliconed to the hull so as to avoid drilling any holes in the boat, and it works perfectly.
  • The boat also has a Raytheon automatic Tiller Pilot which snaps on in a second, it works but I have never used it.
  • There is also a tiller tamer so you can let go of the tiller to do something else for a few min. without the boat taking off in the wrong direction.
  • In the cabin are lights and an AM/FM stereo radio.
  • Because of the design of this boat, the cabin is wide open and has the largest useful open space of any boat in this size range.
  • There is a removable table in the cabin between the settees.
  • There is a 12V battery (? 2 years old), and a connected 120V plug in charger for when you need it.
  • Also a manual and a 12V bilge pump, altho the bilge is always absolutely dry because there are no thru-hull openings to allow water in, and no rain ever comes into this boat.
  • Galley has a sink and small storage area and trash bin, there is no cooking stove but there is a spot for it if you want one.
  • There is a large igloo cooler as you enter the cabin, which also serves as the step, with a teak top.

  • Forward is a 2 person V berth and there are settees port and starboard in the main cabin area, so the boat can sleep four. Storage is under the berths.
  • No head, so you have to use a porta-potti or bucket which is kept under the forward berth.
  • There is a solid roadworthy trailer, and I replaced a wheel bearing and tire last year, the other three tires are all very good. Trailer tongue has an extension which can be pulled out to aid launching and retrieval, and an extra winch which I added to the tongue to make raising and lowering the mast much, much easier.
  • In addition to a gin pole, there is also an extra rear mast support (crutch) to help raise the mast, and supports that fit over the bow and stern rails to hold the mast when traveling or trailering. Lastly, the bottom and centerboard have been freshly painted in anticipation of launching it this year, but my SO's enthusiasm for sailing has waned. We have kept it at my dock at the house but it can be trailered also without difficulty and it's on the trailer now.
  • Maybe instead of thinking of selling this great boat, I should get a new SO? Ha, don't tell her I said that.

    This boat is very easy to sail and is a pleasure to sail, very steady and seaworthy, responsive, reasonably quick, and altho I haven't planned on it, I will probably sell it because I won't be using it very much and hate to see it sit in my driveway.

  • And too bad for me but the boat and trailer registration for Florida was just renewed a week ago.

    I'm located in Shell Point FL in Wakulla Cty, south of Tallahassee right on the Gulf of Mexico.

  • Right now the boat is sitting on the trailer ready to go, either on the road or into the water, so let me know if you're at all interested.
  • I am asking $7500 for boat, trailer, and 8hp outboard, and this price is in line with other websites where these are being rated and sold, and with guidance from the quality of this build.
  • I also have all the manuals for the boat, outboard, tiller pilot, depthfinder, etc, whatever came with the boat from the previous owner when I bought it.
  • If you purchase it and live locally, I can help you get it launched and rigged ready for sail. Otherwise hook up to the trailer and drive it away.
  • Located in Shell Point, Crawfordville Florida, due south of Tallahassee on the Gulf of Mexico.
