Standard features

The Aquarius 23 has a roomy 8 ft. Beam and a swing keel. The boat was designed as a day sailer with a minimal interior.
Vessel was gutted in 2010/2011 and completely refittedwith a Beneteau 23 inspired interior to the turn of $30k+.Insanity, of course. Having downgraded from a Cabo Rico 38, I still wanted the amenities and comfort of a big boat Plus trailerability. I have enjoyed 8 summers on board everywhere from Chesapeake Bay. Georgian Bay, Ontario, Lake Champlain, Narragansett Bay (5 summers). Now past 80, its time to let others enjoy Perfect Timing.
