1981 Sea Sprite

23' Weekender-Menuet

For Sale

Flag of Registry:


The Sea Sprite 23 is a trim but rugged daysailer/overnighter from naval architect Carl A. Alberg that enjoyed a 25-year production run.  It's a typical Alberg design featuring a narrow beam, full keel and conservative ballast-to-displacment ratio and graceful lines.  This is a boat that still turns heads when it sails into a harbor.

"Menuet" is a late model Sea Sprite 23, hull #750 and close to the end of the production run.  Built by C.E. Ryder, also the builder of the Southern Cross.  The construction is high quality throughout.  The entire hull and deck are solid fiberglass.  The interior is light and airy with generous use of teak throughout.

"Menuet" is extraordinarily well equipped, with virtually everything in like new condition. In short, this is a Sea Sprite 23 that needs no additional work and can be sailed away with comfort right now.
