1996 Wellcraft Excel 23SE Cruiser in Bridgeport, Connecticut

Stock #160269

This Wellcraft 23 SE offers about as complete a package one can find in a smaller cruiser; good performance, plenty of outdoor space, ample headroom, a full-length berth, an enclosed head, and a serviceable galley.

The 23 SE has nearly 6 feet 2 inches of headroom, the forward berth is a surprising 7 feet 5 inches long, the decent sized enclosed head has a portable toilet, and the galley is sufficient for most weekend cuisines.

This particular boat has professionally installed shore power, hence the original ice box in the galley has been replaced with a refrigerator, the galley counter has a sink, a one-burner alcohol stove, and enough counter space to make sandwiches or set up a party bar.

The cabin has nice upholstery and ceiling liners in warm tones. The big berth forward doubles as a dinette, Tucked under the cockpit is another large (48-by-78-inch) berth for kids or guests. Even better, it's surprisingly airy because the designers used the cockpit seating to provide good headroom in the aft cabin.

The cockpit is the living area for the 23 SE, though, and it's well-suited for the job... it's big, with an L-shaped settee to port and an adjustable helm chair behind the wheel. Aft is a bench seat, and there's enough room to add deck chairs for guests... And, unlike many boats of this size, there's a walk-through to the integral stern swim platform.

And though she is equipped with a windlass to minimize the need for trips forward, a walk-through windshield makes the job easy if tanning or deck handing is called for.

With plenty of power below deck to move her along at decent cruising speeds and about all one could need for a day or weekend on the water, this boat should fit the bill for many, many folks at either entry-level or the down-sizing points in their boating lives.
