Although the windows look different to all H23's I've seen. I have read here that there were 3 different models. Is mine a standard model or has it been altered? Any info appreciated.

Hull number 3394

Sail number 8456

 

Thanks,

Jamie

Hi Jamie, I suspect the windows on your Halcyon 23 have been modified but strangely enough the transom also looks much more rakish than either my Mk 1 or Mk 2 and the rudder also looks different. What is the name of your Halcyon and where is she berthed?

Hi Buff,

Her name is Floresca, but I think that's a recent name, given by the last owner. She's lying in Plymouth. 

She has the 'Offshore Yachts' plaque in the cabin, and the Seamaster hull stamp.

The interior looks like other H23's I've seen.

A view of her on the water.

I agree the transom looks wrong and the rudder looks very wrong, almost like someone has cut some of the back and stuck it on the front, very strange, but a nice looking boat. May be the angle of the photo but the aft end from the cockpit looks longer to.

I read somewhere that Offshore made quite a few different boats. Is is possible that this was a different model? It seems that the Offshore history isn't very completely documented online?

I don't know, the rest of the boat is identical to mine, just the back looks different, have u had a look in the stern locker. It may be at some time it has been damaged and rebuilt giving it a different line

Yeah, I've looked in there and it all looks fine. I think perhaps it's the camera angle.

This isn't the first time ive seen different rudders and nearly always on triple keeled boats , there seems to be a tendancy to add stock to the leading edge i wonder if this is an attempt to balance the helm ? .
Apart from the windows yours looks the same as mine (MK3) Simon .

Strange how the windows can make it look so different! 

Slept on board with my kids last night and went for a nice sail today. Feel like we cheated a last sail from the year. Plymouth sound was empty. No dingy racing, only a couple of other yachts. Just us and Brittany Ferries. It was ace!
