The Trusty T23 is an ideal sturdy little coastal and inshore cruiser. She is finished to a very high standard inside and out, and is easy to handle for one or two people. Her Owners have equipped her to a very high standard, and she lacks none of the features commonly found on much larger boats. If you are looking at coming out of yachting, she is ideal for motorboating without the gin palace stigma and would grace the pontoon outside the poshest of yacht clubs! Undoubedly a proper little motoryacht. A glowing review of this boat was published in the Nov/Dec edition of Powerboat and RIB magazine, and this can be emailed on request.
