Broker's Comments

The Halcyon 23 is a trailerable pocket cruiser from the drawing board of the well-renowned Alan Buchanan.

Ideal for a small family as a starter boat, or single handed sailing. Sizeable cockpit with deep coamings and high guard rails creates the feeling of comfort when cruising.

Sleeping for four with a forward double V berth and two settee berth's in the saloon, a heads and navigation table. This version has been converted for, and includes, an outboard engine and can be reconverted to take an inboard as the shaft and prop have been left in situ, if required.

This version presents as well maintained (detailed throughout the listing) with plenty of recent upgrades including: replacement of the running rigging, batteries and seacocks, also recently antifouled.

Visiting the boat and listening to the boat's recent history suggests it is ready for a new owner's use.
