Pros:
Cons:

Beautiful boat, sails beautifully it is a very solid boat. Lots of teak wood, not all plastic like. We greatly enjoy our boat & do not feel crowded on long weekend trips. Would not recommend 65 mph with a single axle trailer, hard to control, rides smooth at 55. The only thing that can be irritating is halyard clanking noise at night. The boat is stiff hulled. You can walk around while sailing or at the dock without the boat barely moving. I have walked on some boats that you step on the side to get in & feel the rail will go into the water, the Paceship PY23 is not like that at all. We constanly get asked what kind of boat it is as they are very rare (in Wisconsin anyway) We get alot of comments on how beautiful the boat is & how well it handles from other sailors. Where our boat is kept our boat is by far the best built of its size & the most heavy duty. We feel we made a good choice in buying this boat.

I have owned Sea Horse since July and have found her to be a very nice boat. I am new to sailing (just started this year) and she has proven to be a great teacher. I found the mast stepable by myself (6'3", 220lbs.) and although only 23 feet long very roomy below. I started living on board in August and find her very comfortable (and I live in Maine). I have been doing lots of work to her to conform things to my taste and have found good craftsmanship in all parts of her structure. I look forward to living on and sailing her for many years.

I have only owned this boat for a couple of months but have nothing but positive things to say. So far, sailing has been limited to the smooth waters of Mission Bay in San Diego, while I go through everything, but she seems to be solidly built (I have a Canadain built version)and is a good performer in the light winds here. We traded up from an O'Day 192 and have been very happy with the extra space. The cockpit is a little cramped though.

I have owned the py23 for 6 months now. I sailed down the intcoastal from North Carolina to the Fla. Keys for the winter and have sailed through some strong winds up to 30 knts and 5 foot sea... the boat has handled well for its class but can get tricky when trying to raise and lower sails alone... with a rope around the tiller..It would be nice to have the ability to drop sail from the cockpit , which is a matter of attaching more hardware . the ports over settee are AMF cheesy and leak as well as the companionway hatch ... the keel jams in the up position due to the hinge or barnacles... just a matter of diving in with a flat bar and wiggling it out which is sometimes a hassle All in all I have put this boat through the test and is a good vessel
