23′ Joel White Sloop


Built by a talented and qualified home builder, Lively is a striking cold-molded version of Joel White’s iconic 23′ Sloop. The December 2017 survey notes the boat’s yacht finishes and meticulous construction. Lively is housed in a barn on the owners property in Cundy’s Harbor, ME. The boat is offered with a 2014 Triad trailer.

A quote from the survey:

“This is a vessel that has been built to a high standard with particular attention to detail. The interior of the vessel shows good housekeeping and maintenance. Interior joiner work and finishes were found to be in well maintained condition.”

The owner/builder has built five boats including Lively and an Ocean Pointer, a motorboat designed by David Stimson. Lively is for sale to make space for the next project.
