Notes

An earlier version was known as the NORTH AMERICAN 23. It was renamed after North American Yachts was sold off by powerboat manufacturer Glastron.
The 23K has a lead fin keel, larger SA, taller mast, mid ship traveler and one piece FG rudder vs. the Spirit 23
The SPIRIT 23 was also available with a keel/centerboard (See Spirit 23).
Also available with either a standard coach roof or a lifting 'pop top'. Headroom with the "pop top" up = 6.17ft.
SPIRIT 23 was built in Austin, Texas, USA.
