Other information:
Mitchell 23 sea angler fishing boat
I have been told this is one of the best examples around
Full marine survey and carried out and printed report present for your inspection.
Totally refitted out in 2014 with 1000’s of photos….

Mitchell 23's are renowned for being very seaworthy boats and can take any weather you throw at them.

The hulls are constructed in 'simulated clinker' fiberglass which makes them very robust indeed.

This Mitchell 23 is one of the later models with the 'molded' fiberglass wheelhouse (not to be confused with the older version with leaky wooden wheelhouse's !)

They are an extremely easy boat to handle and you can manage this one completely on your own with no worries, and with the added bonus of a self-launching anchor system there is no need to go up front and the anchor can be easily pulled up with the electric winch form the cockpit, very safely.
She comfortably cruises at 7 knots and will make 9 knots with the tide.

This boat has been my ‘pride and joy’ and I’m really not worried if this beautiful boat doesn't sell as I will be more than happy to keep her for another season.

Only reason for sale I’m considering upgrading to Mitchel 31, so if you have a Mitchell 31 I would consider a px with cash adjustment.

This boat has taken lots of hard work and no expense has been spared on anything, please read itinerary and look at photos.

If you are after a’ completely finished’ very easy to handle, cut ‘above average’ fishing boat then this could be the boat for you.

All you need to do is turn the key! It’s even full of fuel and ready to go.

The asking price is the price if you want to own this lovey boat, it’s worth every penny and I’m not prepared to drop as I honestly would rather keep her, so please don’t waste both our times and make any offers as the answer will be no, sorry.

Without trying to sound rude!
I don’t want to px your old Cortina, Range rover, caravan, boat or your ageing gran. Hard cash will purchase this fantastic boat.

The boat is at Sutton Wharf, Rochford, Essex.
SS4 1JU and any inspection / marine survey is more than welcome.

Transportation can be arranged at your expense.
