1974 Catalina Yachts Swing Keel
- Stock #083212 -
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.
