Used Boat Sales History > 2002 Sakonnet 23 Sailboat $34,950 (6)

SOLD 2002 Sakonnet 23 refurbished and delivered on a galvanized trailer includes mainsail, jib sail, mainsail cover, boom tent, teak floorboards and cockpit seat trim, epoxy barrier coat, a/f bottom painting, lobster trap line preventer, red boot top, and white hull color. The Edey & Duff sales brochure reminds us, "Naval architect Joel White sought to design a very simple boat that offers "good speed, comfortable seating for four, and good looks." A properly designed daysailer, says White, "gives the maximum in boating pleasure for the dollars spent." The Sakonnet 23 is a simple boat to sail and enjoy. With a moderate sail area-to-displacement ratio, narrow 6-foot beam, and light displacement, the Sakonnet easily reaches hull speed in light as well as moderate winds. Her low center of gravity combined with a 920-pound bulbed keel and ballasted centerboard ensure a safe, comfortable sail. Shoal draft of 22 inches (with the centerboard up) makes her well suited for gunkholing and beaching and her narrow beam and shallow keel make trailering easy. Refreshingly handsome from all angles, super-swift, and with just enough teak trim to accent her low, traditional lines, this distinctive double-ender is ideal for the sailor who wants a roomy, inshore daysailer for weekend and evening sailing with family and friends."
