Alas, it has come time to bid the Bubble Tub adieu. This restored 1978 Catalina 22 Swing Keel Sloop is a joy to own and operate. She’s proven herself on numerous trips to the San Juans and is equally as enjoyable for day sailing. It’s the perfect starter boat for someone looking to transition from dinghies to cabin boats (myself) or for the family that doesn’t want the commitment of having a boat full-time in the harbor. For those interested in racing, she is rated at PHRF 318 for the 2020 season and took second place in the double-hand division at the Shaw Island Winter Classic.
Equipment: Sails: Jib, Genoa, Main - Anchor w/ chain and rode - Fenders - Dock lines

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.
