*** REPEAT CUSTOMER ***:
We have sold 2 other boats on Sailing Texas.
This boat was purchased off Sailing Texas in March 05 for $6500, and have close to $2000 in upgrades since.
Moving up to a bigger boat.
Has always been in fresh water.
This very rare boat is one of the most luxurious and stable cruisers around for it's size.
Has that big-boat feel, for far less money....and is trailerable.
Lots of interior wood, and carpeted headliner.
Light-colored cushions in great shape.
Sails and rigging are in good shape.
Solar panel trickle-charges the batteries w/ no problems....have not had to resort to a traditional charger since the 2nd battery was added last year, and there's a lot of electronics that we use on this boat.
Remember, the outboard is essentially new, and the trailer is recently rebuilt.
Great buy for the complete package (boat, motor and trailer).
Good Morning David -
Please mark the Gloucester 23 as "sold."
The Cheez-Cutter II has been adopted by a fine couple and is going to a good home.
Chalk up another success story for Sailing Texas.
A donation check is in the mail to assist you in keeping this fine site up-and-running.
