Notes

The CATALINA 22 is one of the most popular sailboats ever in anything close to this size,. 15,000 boats sold (2009)
It has been built in different plants around the world..(Known in Australia as the BOOMAROO 22.)
(A fixed keel version introduced in the early 1970's)

A 'New Design' was introduced in 1986 (featuring an opt. winged keel), and MARK II in 1995.

The CATALINA 22 SPORT was released in 2003. (Originally called the CAPRI 22 swing keel.)
From a new "fairer" mold though the hull design is the same as the original CATALINA 22.
Thanks to former Catalina dealer Joe Rose and a number of others for providing additional information.
