1970 Ericson 23 MK I - $4500 OBO
Described by Sailing Magazine as, “perfect starter boat in a stylish, well-built package.” http://sailingmagazine.net/article-534-ericson-23.html This 23 Ericson will take you to Catalina and back easily at hull speed of up to 6 knots (about 7 mph). “The second best things about the Ericson 23 is the way she sails. Shes a great performer and is still wining races.”Sails like a dream and is easily sailed by one (with training). Basic sailboat training can be provided by owner after purchase. Jib sail has roller furling. V-Berth can sleep 2 cozily. Galley has bench seat with drop down table to port and small sink and icebox to Starboard. Small head is tucked under V-Berth (currently not hooked up to water source). Recently rebuilt 9.9 horsepower Tohatsu outboard is included! This motor can push the boat to top hull speed at less than half throttle and new is worth around $2500! Offers not including the outboard motor will be considered.
