This well equipped vessel has every option, but you can buy her for less by excluding the equipment you don't need.

"Spring 2016 update: Due to a change in plans, the seller is willing to put a deal together and will consider offers that exclude some of her cruising-oriented equipment and amenities.

"This well-equipped vessel set up to singlehand from the cockpit has every option needed by a coastal cruiser, but you can buy her for less by excluding the equipment you don't need at the time of your offer."

This has been a labor of love for the past dozen or so years. The owner has invested over $40K (his cost and equipment installed) into this restoration project - along with many hundreds of hours of his personal labor. There is nothing like this Catalina for a cruising 22 sailor. It can and has taken the owner up and down the coast single handed in all sorts of truly adverse conditions, both weather and sea - the furthest reach to South Addison, Downeast Maine for a three-week single handed cruise.

This Catalina is a great small sailboat easy to single hand with lots of amenities, e.g., Porta potty, Origo alcohol stove, Garmin GPSMap 478, Humminbird HDR-610 depth gauge, Nicro day/night in-deck solar fan, sliding galley/water tank (which the seller chose not to use and stored away). It even has a 5Mile Wifi antenna to hoist up the main mast on its own slide track.

It has a pair of 12V marine batteries with a 4-way switch which powers everything well, including the seller's laptop, smartphone, outboard's electric-start, etc., and the outboard's alternator keeps them charged up when it's running. The small deck-mounted solar panel with controller keeps the batteries topped off while on the mooring.

The ICOM M302 VHF marine radio with two Shakespeare "Squatty) antennas; one mounted at mast top, the other on the stern pulpit makes it easy and safe to communicate.

Some newer items include :New Ullman Offshore full-batten, loose-footed mainsail in 2007 ($792.73) with mainsail cover. Furlex roller furler system in 2004 ( $1317.75) with two genoas. New Lewmar 14 ST winches with covers in 2005. Rope clutches. Two anchors: Delta (Lewmar) Fast-Set anchor (14 lb); Danforth anchor (14 lb) with 20' of chain and 200' of rode (additional chain and rode with the Danforth). The Delta sits on its bow-roller, the Danforth stowed below in a bag with it's own rode and chain.

The owner replaced its stock rudder with an IdaSailor HDPE rudder - fully swing-up to vertical ($578 in 2007); handy in many situations and almost maintenance-free.

In 2010 he removed, had tinted, and re-bedded the cabin windows, had their frames powder-coated. What a difference that made, outside and inside the cabin.

This Catalina 22 lacks nothing the owner could think of; It's ready to trailer out, raise the mast, launch and sail away.

ConditionThe owner has added some $9k and many additional labor hours to the boat since the 2008 survey. The trailer is a 2003 galvanized Load Rite in excellent condition. The outboard was purchased new in 2006 ($2,273); a Honda 8 HP electric-start 4-stroke that's been extremely well maintained, winterized and tuned up at the end of every sailing season It has two six-gallon tanks, cross-hosed that were even just drained and refilled with fresh gas.

The owner has single handed for virtually the entire dozen years of his ownership and has set up the boat to handle completely from the cockpit. There is no need to go forward for anything except anchoring or picking up a mooring. The RayMarine ST2000 Tillerpilot is included--program, point and sail; let it steer the boat while you leave the helm.

Quote from Surveyor rigging notes: "Running & standing rigging is that of a vessel almost twice her size. The upgrades make her a strong sailboat for winds up to 40mph". Survey findings conclusion from 6/19/2008:
" This being the 2nd survey I have done in the past four years, I have found this vessel is in much better condition than my previous survey. the scope of improvements and the funds that have been spend on her care and maintenance have been intense. She is better equipped than most vessels sailing locally. I feel with her many improvements it is extremely difficult to find any recommendations for her owner. The replacement cost for this vessel is now somewhere around $35k. A new vessel of her size from Catalina would be close to $35k plus all the equipment aboard her, a new owner would be spending close to $50k.
I feel she is a very good insurance risk and should be insured for $25k to protect the investment the owner has put forth. "
