I've heard that the tanzer 22 is the same as the P23. tanzer bought the molds from paceship. Can't verify that though.

I believe it is the Paceship 26 and Tanzer 27 that are the same... not sure about the smaller boats.

That is correct Tanzer bought the Paceship 26 moulds when they closed and called the boat 27. The P23 was a C&C design very similar to the Tanzer 22 design. Seems like around 1970 there were a lot of designers and builders that had small to medium size flush deck designs. While there is no headroom you are only supposed to sit or lay down when below anyway. I like flush deck designs in these smaller boats because I dislike practically useless skinny sidedects on the raised cabin models. Each to their own choice.

What did you decide?

Hello Mark,
I am contemplating the same two boats.
Did you decide? And if so, what was your decision and are you happy with it?

Thanks,
Mark

Both are sound proven designs. Both, when raced, will perform to their respective ratings so do you REALLY care if one is one-twentyfifth of a knot faster in absolute terms? When you race either of these boats, your results will be 99% your sailing skill and 1% your boat's factory design.

In older boats like these, your own description says it all... one is in great shape with better sails and outboard; the other good shape with older sails and outboard. Better sails and outboard alone make up the $500 difference three times over.
