    The PY23 was originally built in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, and later by AMF in the United States. Unlike the interior of many boats built in the 1970s which have a dinette arrangement, the PY23's layout features two settees which are parallel to the centerline, and a table which folds up against a bulkhead. This layout often provides for more open space in the main cabin. It's also in this size range that boats get big enough to have a semi-private head located behind a bulkhead. The Paceship PY23 was available with a swing keel or a fixed fin keel.
