Here is a shoal draft 1988 22 foot CAL 22 fractional rig sloop, fin keel, transom mount rudder, powered with an 8HP Johnson Sailmaster outboard in excellent running order in Stamford, CT. This sailing yacht is offered with a marina slip in Stamford CT, for sale to qualified buyers, or rent to non residents.
When you are ready to move up to the stability, sail-carrying power and safety of an externally ballasted keelboat, the CAL 22 is a most logical step. C. Raymond Hunt has designed this shoal draft fin keel sloop, a wonderfully efficient pocket cruiser perfect for near shore waters.
To make sailing easy, this Cal 22 comes equipped with all sail handling lines lead to the cockpit. The main halyard and a single piece reefing line allow the mainsail area to be reduced in less than a minute without ever leaving the security of the cockpit. The 130% Genoa, on a roller furling gear, is designed and cut with vertical panels for efficiency when partially furled.
The CAL 22 is a “bigger” boat in many respects when compared to center boarders in the same size range. Because the boat is heavier and the rig is bigger, spar sections are stronger and rigging beefier.
The CAL 22 concept was developed with the understanding that most use of this size boat is as a daysailer, but weekend and overnight accommodations are also important. There is an enormous 7’2” cockpit encompassing contoured seats and surrounded by coaming and deck surfaces that are comfortable underneath you. The mainsheet traveler allows sail set adjustment because it is far aft on a rail. Beneath one cockpit seat is the fuel tank locker, and under the other cockpit seat is storage for sails, gear, anchor, outboard, etc.
The accommodation below is for overnighting, weekending, or longer cruises. There is a privacy curtain to separate the vee berth forward from those aft in the saloon. A galley unit with water supply and swing table is situated just aft of the vee berths, and enjoys ample sitting head room. The bunks are oversized for adults.
These CAL 22’s are extremely fast even by today’s standards. Terrific in light air, the CAL 22 is an easy sailing fast boat that can clean up in the club racing circuit. This CAL 22 is in nice condition, clean and well maintained. The sails are well sailed, but should hold up for the next few years. The Johnson Outboard replaced the earlier Honda outboard, and starts easily, runs well though we have no idea how many hours have been clocked. The teak trim and toe rails are good shape though it is time for them to be wooded and refinished. Keel bolts were recently tightened and the keel refared, the bilge is absolutely dry.
Here is a lovely small cruiser/daysailer in excellent condition and ready to take a young family on lifetime adventures. Should you be convenient to Stamford, CT, there is a dedicated marina slip already earmarked for this boat on lovely Long Island Sound.
