1981 MacGregor Venture of Newport 23 Sailboat. Fully restored in 2012-2013, only selling since we need the money for a house. This is a 23 foot trailer-sailor, with a cast iron retractable swing keel. Sleeps 4-5, and has a galley with sink, room for a stove, plumbed in toilet in the separated head.

The jibs (2) are approx. 5 years old and like new, the main is in good condition but older. Includes all the original lines for emergency spares, several life jackets, trailer with newer tires, new fenders, new winch, new lights, and current Mass reg. The motor is a 1983 Honda 7.5HP 4 stroke outboard, which is stored indoors off season. Never saw salt water before 2013, and refinished exterior and recently serviced by Merrimac Marine. Runs like new, and perfect for this size vessel. Current Mass reg of the boat and trailer, and ready to go! The only thing this boat needs is a new owner, and is a beauty. Lots and lots of compliments wherever we go. It will do approx 8 knots, which is fast for its size, with the 2 jibs. A lot of fun to sail, and no need to pay for a mooring. This is designed to have the mast raised and taken down easily with 2 people in about 20 minutes. The total weight including trailer, boat, and loaded with gear is approx. 4,000lbs, so it can be towed by many smaller vehicles as well. Willing to deliver within a reasonable distance, and launch if needed as well (in case you don't have a tow vehicle and want to moor/dock it).
