This KittyWake 23 or South Coast 23 is located in RI.
The history on this classic is a little hazy. It's being labeled as a Kittywake, but
the year (1965) might make it a South Coast 23.
The KITTIWAKE derived from the earlier SOUTH COAST 23, built by Kenner Boat Co for South Coast Sea Craft. In about 1965 South Coast took the molds and moved to a different location. A hull was left behind which Kenner cut up, enlarged by a few inches, and re-faired to make molds for the KITTIWAKE.
Right now, this KittyWake (or South Coast) is one dirty bird, as you can see from the photos.She's been sitting idle for over 14 years and was part of an estate sale. She had been Awlgripped and looks like she's never been sailed since.
She looks like the owner had planned on a complete restoration and never managed to complete it. There's a new compass (never used) new vang (never used), new wiring and electrical panel.
She comes with 2 masts representing both the tall and standard rig. The tall rig is brand new as you will see from the turnbuckles and the shrouds.
There are 4 sails that come with it. 2 jibs, main and spinnaker.
As a HUGE plus there's a really top notch 2005 Tri-ad single axle trailer that's worth about as much as the owner is asking for everything.
For the sailor that is looking to spend a little time and energy scrubbing, waxing, sanding, painting and varnishing, you can have a classic sailboat that can provide years of fun for the family, and I'm guessing she'd do well on the round the buoys circuit too.
There's no motor with this boat.
