Boat is in Rochester, New York.
Moved up to a bigger boat and this little gem has served me very well.
Here is a 1972 Aquarius 23.
One of the best entry level sailboats ever.
Easy to rig.
Forgiving and safe under sail.
A perfect starter boat for anyone looking to try their hand at sailing.
Completely trailerable "Pocket" cruiser.
Huge sail inventory.
Many upgrades and new or custom built parts.
This is the best equipped and best performing Aquarius 23 you will ever find.
Tohatsu 9.8 with electric start and alternator.
Will sleep 4 adults.
Has 2 sinks, a small galley, an enclosed private head, and more storage space than you can fill.
Great for day sailing, weekending, and even beer can ran racing.
The centerboard and lifting rudder means you will be able to launch and haul out this boat from any conventional boat ramp and you can take this boat where fixed keel boats do not even dare to consider.
Anyone familiar with Lake Ontario harbors knows there are many shallow ports where you just can't enter.
Boat is on the trailer now and in winter storage.
She can be viewed by appointment.
Length 23'Beam 8'Draft 14" board up, 4' board down.
Trailer is included in this offer however price is based on the boat only.

Many other miscellaneous items too numerous to list.
This is sturdy vessel and a great entry level sailboat and a very capable and award winning racer.
Roomier than a Catalina 22, easier to sail than a keel boat.
I will even deliver and provide sailing lessons if purchased locally/50 mile radius.
This boat is ready to sail and needs nothing except water and wind.
Trailerable means you can take it where you want with no shipping cost and you can sail where you want with no dock fees.
For those who have heard that the A23 is a slow boat I can assure you that this one has been tricked out to sail well above her current 315 non-spinnaker and 289 spinnaker PHRF.
You can clean up your division in club racing as I have for 6 consecutive years of racing.
If you are not looking to race I can offer a reduced price by removing some of the more desirable racing hardware and sails.
