Generations of boat building experience have taught that simplicity and seaworthiness are the keys to providing the safest, smoothest ride and the 23 delivers just that. The strong, hand laid hull is rated for 300 hp and can be powered with single or twin engines.
Safe and secure is the feeling she conveys, no more plunging into the trough to spear the next wave. The full bow, along with the 3 piece construction, also provides this 23 with a great deal of interior space. A modified-V hull and low center of gravity combine for stability at rest. She feels like she is bobbing, not snap rolling. Go ahead and cut the power, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Mid-range performance, from 20-36 mph is where she is in a class of her own. She is easily driven, and her well balanced hull allows her to plane at a dowdy 18-20 mph. When conditions are rough, maintaining a plane in the low 20’s is great, and not possible on most outboard boats. Don’t try and steer her, just let her dance her way through the sea naturally. In moderate to good conditions, she provides a soft ride in the low to mid 30’s. At either speed, the fine entry is slicing through the steep stuff while the round bilges aft yield to the impact of the water.
