"Jibe Ho"
Location: Pittsburgh - Lake Arthur, Moraine State Park


"Jibe Ho," a freshwater only Precision 23 is considered to be a "maxi-trailerable." "Jibe Ho" has been stored indoors every winter.

The Precision 23 far outstrips many boats in terms of true usable space, both on deck and below. Special emphasis has gone into giving the P-23 her particular bright and uncluttered interior. The bulkheads are intentionally trimmed back to avoid subdividing the visual space. Of special note, the typical intrusive mast compression support post has been eliminated by clever use of a rugged overhead support beam fiberglassed to the deck. The especially large companionway, multiple cabin ports and forward hatch contribute to the feeling of light & open space. The double berth forward is generous and there are full sized berths aft which will accommodate 3 more. The portable head has a dedicated space forward and the fixed galley is aft where it is convenient to both cabin and cockpit. The Precision 23 hull represents a very careful refinement of the basic form that has proven so successful in all of our well known trailerable cruisers. Lively performance, reliable handling and high stability are all the hallmarks of these designs. They feature a sharp waterline entry, substantial topside flare forward and powerful quarters taper to a shapely transom. This precise combination of features avoids the trim and handling problems that less well balanced hulls suffer when heeled. This design provides a reassuring margin of both reserve buoyancy forward and ensures more knockdown stability.
