Our first boat was a Paceship P23. This is not to be confused with the Paceship PY23 which has more interior room and is a bit slower.

The P23 was a C&C design and according to rumour had same hull as Tanzer 22. I do not believe that is true but they are definitely very very similar boats. The biggest difference I know between a Tanzer 22 and a Paceship P23 is the cooler. The P23 has a molded in top loading cooler and the Tanzer has a side loading refrigerator style cooler which is more difficult to use.

both are good boats. The P23 was overbuilt like most boats of that time and the wiring was bad (but simple) with the fuse box in the cockpit locker and lots of corrosion on the connections.
