The Stuart 23

Stuart 23

The 23 Stuart Boatworks model is the perfect size single engine boat for both nearshore and offshore use. Easily manageable singlehandedly, yet also adequate space for multiple passengers and provides a solidness of feel and a softness of ride equivalent to a much larger boat according to many of our owners. A few of these owners have moved down from larger boats and claim this is the largest feeling 23’ center console they have ever experienced and provides a ride comfort far beyond their expectations. Several owners have made multiple trips to, from, and throughout the Bahamas on their 23 Stuart with friends and family on a regular basis.

Built to last a Lifetime with a level of Fit and Finish very rarely found on boats of this size, and designed with the concept of keeping it clean and simple, easy to maintain, and virtually no “gadets” that might catch your eye at a Boat Show, but often fail shortly after usage.

Loaded with a combination of features not available on any other boat:

• Fully Resin Infused Hull with integral Stringers, Liner, & Deck Cap.

• Liner fully bonded to the hullsides from rub rail to chine and from bow to stern for a “Rock Solid, No Flex Construction”.

• Custom “Under Deck Overboard Drain System” for all hatch gutters as well as the cockpit sole drains.

• “Rounded Bilge Hull Design” for the softest ride imaginable.

• “Small Magical Keel Design” for the utmost predictability in directional stability while running as well as at rest/drifting.

• “Instant On-Plane Hull Design” with virtually No Bow Lift, No Visual Loss of the Horizon, and the ability Come On Plane and Stay On Plane under 20 MPH.

• “Ultimate Get-Home Protection Hull Design” with the ability to Come On Plane on a single 115HP or larger 4 stroke motor with the other motor trimmed completely out of the water (when ordered with twins) and run in the 22 to 32 MPH range without having to change props or use any trim tab adjustment downward.
