The Hunter 23 is a single masted sailing dinghy made by Hunter Marine from 1985 to 1992. Early models were fitted with a swing-wing keel until 1986, when production switched to a regular cast iron wing keel.
The 23 bears design similarities to the smaller Hunter 18.5 and larger Hunter 28.5 models. The foredeck has an anchor locker which also contains the forestay. Working backwards, the foredeck gives way to the flat, subtle pilothouse. "Hunter stripes" ahead and behind of the windows give way to the gentle slope of the companionway. Steep gunwales continue the line down to the transom.
