A bit more stable than most 22'ers, the Watkins 23 has a full 8' beam and within the 2,500 lb. total weight the Watkins has 900 lbs of ballast rather than the typical 500 to 600 lb ballast. Complete with a tandem axle galvanized trailer and very long shaft Evinrude sailmaster outboard this Watkins is most attractive with the cream white hull and sporty red stripes and underbody.
The keel centerboard design gives a draft with the board up of only 18" and yet with the board down she has a respectable 6' 0" draft for good windward performance. We come into this boat as a trade where the owner enjoyed this boat as his first boat and now after 2 seasons recently stepped up to a 7,000 lb 27 with inboard diesel and wheel as he developed comfort with his sailing skills with the Watkins. Hopefully this Watkins 23 can do the same for you and your sailing experience.
Take a look at the photos and you'll see a great starter boat that can give you years and years of sailing enjoyment. Hopefully in a few seasons we will be taking the Watkins back in trade as you move to the your next level. Let the fun begin !!
So, come on in and let's get a deposit put down on this great 23' Watkins.
IT'S YOUR MOVE !!
