1982 Etchells E22 Daysailer
YOUNG AMERICA is a uniquely customized Etchells E22 built to mimic the look of the iconic WINDWARD PASSAGE. She was constructed in 1982 by Ontario Yachts, as hull # 571. Lengthy refit and customization took place at the Yacht Works, Inc. yard in Door County Wisconsin. Her owner is an extremely fastidious yachtsman who demands the best.
YOUNG AMERICA is configured to be single-handed. A below deck jib furler and Harken Magic Box facilitate easy handling. A cockpit control center is built on a mid-cockpit Sampson post. The forward dash panel houses an Autohelm Tri Data, wind instrument and Raytheon GPS.
Sails have only two very limited seasons on them and are main, jib and spinnaker. A 12 volt marine battery, maintained by a solar charger, powers the Autohelm auto pilot, running lights, cockpit lights, automatic bilge pump and stereo. She also has a manual bilge pump.
Original floor boards were replaced with a teak cockpit deck. Topsides and decks are AwlGrip and a heavy duty trailer built for her round out the extensive feature list for this beautiful yacht. And she is fast.
