1977 Chrysler 22

Added 18 January, 2013

About this Sailboat:

Chrysler Marine built this Halsey Herreshoff designed swing keel / swing rudder masthead sloop from 1975 to 1978 specifically as a family day sailor, overnighter, racer, easily handled and sailed by a single person or full crew. As one of the finest trailerable cruisers, she has a strong following with an on-line support group… for good reason. She’s easily trailered and is one of the most stable sailing 22 footers built. With an easily managed swing keel at its minimum, draft is 1’ 11”, at its maximum 4’6” and weights in at a substantial 825 lbs. I’ve found the generous ballast makes the Sandpiper safer and far more capable in heavy air than other boats in her class. The masthead rig sail plan with a hank-on head sail is uncomplicated and easily handled. With the single reef main sail, sailors at every level of experience have options for handling many different sailing conditions. I have a good deal of documentation for the Sandpiper as well as there being a vast amount of information available at http://chryslersailors.com and youtube. The mast is designed to be raised and lowered by two people, which helps keep maintenance costs affordable
