The TANZER 22 was the most popular of all the Tanzer models. Most were constructed in Dorion, Que.(CAN). But some were produced in Edenton., N.C. (USA), (270 boats) and in Arlington, WA (USA). (167 boats).
About 200 were built as keel-centerboarders.

After Tanzer went out of business in 1986, the tooling was aquired by Kisber & Co., which built Tanzer models for about a year before selling out to Canadian Yacht Builders which never built any.
At some point, The TANZER 22 class association acquired the design, tooling and name of the boat by selling shares to members but is unknown if any more have been built since then.
A rare variant, the TANZER 22 T/4, has a slightly modified rudder and sailplan allowing it to rate at, or below the 1/4 ton level under IOR MkIII. The rule itself was changed very soon afterward so this version was sold for only a very short time.
