There were two 23 foot Paceships. I am assuming that you are talking about the one from the 1970''s vs the one from the 1960''s. There were both keel and keel/swing keel versions of this boat. The keel versions sailed very nicely. They are not fast enough to race competitively but are fun boats to sail with nice handling characteristics. I have not sailed on a keel/centerboard version but from seeing them underway, they do not seem to have the same performance as the keel version but still appear to sail well without any obvious quirks.

Anyone experienced with the Paceship 23 who could tell me about its'' performance, etc? I am considering a purchase.
