Leisure 23 'Phoenix' - For Sale

Post by Phoenix Jeff » Wed Jun 26, 2019 11:06 am

Phoenix - 1978 Leisure 23 bilge keel with Yanmar 1GM inboard engine is for sale.

Designed for serious cruising, the first thing that impresses most people about the Leisure 23 is the ample deck space, large deep cushioned cockpit and surprisingly roomy accommodation for up to five people. With a high ballast ration of 48%, the L23 proved a most seaworthy yacht.

Phoenix has a Yanmar 1GM fitted. This was rebuilt in 2017 and a stainless steel exhaust elbow fitted.

The accommodation comprises a main saloon cabin in a dinette arrangement, with a large fore cabin. Five berths are available. The galley consists of a space for a two burner stove and a sink with cupboard space underneath. Much use is made of teak and teak veneers throughout the cabin giving a warm appearance.

Phoenix was bought 2 years ago and since has had the engine rebuild with a brand new head, lift pump, fuel tank and exhaust system. New Plastimo roller reefing fitted for the Genoa. Deck painted with international Interdeck to provide extra grip. Lines run back to cockpit. Cushions cleaned with a upholstery cleaner. The plan was to continue the refit inside however a young child and other commitments have slowed this down significantly.

The inside refit does need completing and the electrics need work. It comes with a spinnaker and cruising chute. Viewing is available at Eling near Southampton.
