23' American Marine Angelman 23 '61 "Sea Babe"

A true classic. This Angelman 23 is set up as original. Built of teak by American Marine with a spruce mast. SEA BABE is diesel powered and a well found little ship. Beautiful brightwork makes her a head turner. Her gaff rig and club footed jib create a simple sail plan. Interior is basic with wood accents. Seller is motivated as shown by the price.
