Brief details

Jeanneau, France

The Jeanneau Tonic 23 is a small trailer-sailer with clean modern lines and good accommodation for the size. They were built in both fin and drop-keel versions. Most were outboard-powered, but some were fitted with small diesel inboards

Keel type

Iron fixed fin keel or lifting keel within cast iron stub keel

Built from 1985 to 1995, Jeanneau's Tonic 23 was built with a choice of fin keel or lift keel options, the lifting keel being probably the more popular, as it allowed the use of cheaper drying moorings

The drop keel versions will only sit upright in soft mud, part of the fixed keel housing remaining under the hull body. This layout minimises intrusion of the centreboard case into the saloon

Jeanneau Tonic 23

The saloon has seating around a drop-leaf table, with the centreboard case for drop keel versions, as seen here, under the tabletop. The seating continues forward to form a berth area. Amidships is a chart table and enclosed heads compartment to starboard, and the galley to port. Under the port side of the cockpit seating is a large (nominally double) berth. In the photo below the companionway steps have been removed to show the shape of this aft berth

The galley has a sink and useful workspace, but the standard cooker fitted was often a single gimbaled 'Camping Gaz' burner, with the bottle directly attached

If an inboard is fitted it is installed under the companionway steps, and the engine box does mean that the aft berth is longer outboard than inboard. In outboard powered versions the engine is in a well in the starboard cockpit locker, and the aft berth can be larger

Accommodation plan showing berth layout and engine position of standard outboard version

The accommodation packs a lot (including a proper chart table) into a 24-foot hull. Headroom is about 5' 5" by the galley.

Below: the centreboard is lifted and lowered by a small winch on the aft end of the saloon table structure, which forms the centreboard case.
