The Catalina 22 Sailboat one of the more popular trailer capable small cruisers ever built. It is by no means a blue water cruiser but its price, features and trailerability make it a very popular choice for small sailboat enthusiasts. I would classify it as a trailerable inland waterway cruiser.
Frank Butler, who was formerly with Columbia Yachts, built Catalina’s first model, the Catalina 22, in North Hollywood, CA. The plan was to build 100 boats if all went well. All did go well and to date, more than 10,000 boats been built making the Catalina 22 one of the most popular small cruising sailboats in the world.
We have additional specifications for the Catalina 22 such as LOA, Beam, Displacement, Headroom, Draft, Sail Area, etc.. in our specifications article to the right.
