Precision 23

Sold – Designed by Jim Taylor, the Precision 23 is easily trailer launched and retrieved, yet is big enough for short cruises with long berths and ample storage below in a very attractive setting. Taylor emphasizes sailing performance with all Precision models. Her tall mast has a fractional sail plan for easy headsail handling. The shrouds are located inboard for a tighter sheeting angle and for walking about the deck with ease. The keel has internal ballast within the fiberglass hull and there is a centerboard controlled by a simple rope to offer nice windward performance. This is a three-owner boat and it is in like new condition.

Bella has been an excellent sailboat, but we have decided to move to a larger sailboat. She is extremely responsive and other sailors tell us she is a fast boat. She is in fine condition and the next owner will be very happy with a terrific, Jim Taylor designed sailboat. More information can be found at Precision Boat Works about this great boat. Bella is located at Hooper’s Yachts in Afton, MN.

Here are some of my musings about Bella.
