Hi – this is a listing for my Leisure 23 fin keel sailing boat. I’ve owned her for around 16 months and loved every minute on board, but it’s time for a change, so she’s up for sale. I’ve used her as a weekend getaway – pottering up and down the lake, sitting watching the sun going down behind the mountains with a cold beer and waking up on misty mornings with just the geese and ducks for company… a great escape from the bustle of everyday life. The boat is in reasonable condition, I would say – she’s got some battle scars, but doesn’t look too bad after a clean. Below deck is a nice place to be – around 5′ 8″ standing room, with a double berth in the bow, the seating/table area makes into another double and there’s a single berth to the stern/port. There’s a sink and 2-burner gas hob/grill and a porta-potti in the bow. The boat is a bit of a project – here are the issues:mainsail needs altering or replacing as it’s too big (strange but true). Foresail has been used and is fine. outboard engine due a service – starts fine on the pull-start, but stopped working on the key last weekend – not sure why. Also struggled when I put it into gear and gave it some revs – seemed to choke up and stall.. ran perfectly up until last week. the 12v system needs looking at – lights etc. not working at present – shouldn’t be a difficult fix.hull below the waterline could do with a clean.There’s an active Leisure owners club, which is a great source of information and help:https://www.leisureowners.org.uk/ The boat is on a Windermere mooring, around 10 minutes in my dinghy from Ferry Nab. Moorings on Windermere are not transferable between individuals and I’d like to keep it for my next boat anyway – if the new owner wants to keep it on Windermere, then they would have to organise this through the office. I live in Sheffield, so can’t just nip up to the lake at short notice, but I’m up there most weekends, so please contact me if you would like to view. I won’t accept any offers unless the buyer has seen the boat. Buyer to move boat from mooring within 2 weeks of sale. Cash only. Thanks for looking!p.s. the small outboard you can see on the rail in the first photo is not included!
