Trusty T23

When you own a T23 you'll have to get used to the frequent compliments from fellow boaters.

The classic lines and traditional shape of the hull make for a truly distinctive looking boat. In fact our customers tell us that's one of the things they most like about a Trusty. It definitely stands out from the crowd. But not only does the T23 look like a "proper" boat it's also designed to be seaworthy. Those in the know will immediately recognise the sea-kindly shape. The full displacement hull with centre and bilge keels is a tried and tested marine design. It's inherently stable and makes handling a joy.
