The Trusty T23 is built and engineered to a standard rarely found in a boat of this size - and this example is exceptionally well maintained. Ideal for two - but will take four. A great little boat with a bigger boat feel. Economical and a credit to the builder. Viewing by appointment Bangor, NORTHERN IRELAND.
