Islander 23ft sailing boat. Bilge keel so great for estuary sailing or coastal.This boat is incredibly seaworthy. I sailed her through the English channel from Southampton to the East coast. We have 10ft waves and 15MPH winds and the performed really well.Great for cruising and overnight stays or longer cruising.She does need TLC and rigging tightening and a general look over but she is all there and in the water.4 single births in the main cabin. There is a V locker/cabin forward which houses the anchor chain and sea water toilet. The toilet is blocked off at present but could be put back into use.The V cabin/ locker at the front could easily be turned into a V birth with a little bit of work. Again, no time and there is normally only 2 of us when we are sailing so there is room enough.Battery and solar panel.Nav lights, cabin lights, nav aids such as wind, depth and log. These need to be calibrated and tested as I admit I never really use them.Sink with electric pump. Pump needs looking at.All rigging is there, main sail is old but still serviceable. After my last journey I cant hoist it right to the top of the mast. I think one of the slides is stuck. Easy job but no time. So, when I take it out at the weekends I batten the sail to 3/4 size.Genoa is quite big, old but once out it flies with the right winds.5hp Crescent 2 stroke engine. Again its old but reliable. This sits in a well in the cockpit.Cockpit has lockers either side.Anchor, ropes and everything needed to sail or motor away.This sailing boat will give you loads of fun.currently afloat on River Orwell near Ipswich.
