GENERAL: Chrysler's outstanding new 22' trailerable family sailer, sets a new standard for versatility and performance in small cruiser-racers: She sails with amazing stability--a result of her wide 7'9" beam, 3000-lb. displacement and 725-lb. swing keel (Also available with a fixed keel, 1010-lb.). Safety for families and racers include foot-gripping deck surfaces, self-bailing cockpit, self-righting capability and foam floatation. She's just right for a family of five, a racing crew of 2-3, or the single-hander.

FOR TRAILERING the easily raised swing keel and thru-hull pivot-up rudder keep center of gravity low, provide convenience for loading and launching. The hinged mast step and mast carrier make rigging simple. Her custom trailer saves dockage/storage fees (she'll berth in your backyard), and makes sailing fun mobile. Use it as an on-land camper on your way to and from waterways.

FOR CRUISING there's plenty of extra room and comfort. The whole family can rest easy on five 6'3" full-length cushioned berths. Cabin is light and airy with windows, translucent sliding companionway hatch. Double berth converts to a dinette (also great for charting, youngsters' games). Optional slide-away galley is positioned near companionway to give standing headroom and plenty of cabin ventilation with hatch open. Optional portable cooler forms step into cabin.

There's storage galore--even special space for an auxiliary outboard tank. The boat interior has full-length fiberglass liners to make maintenance easy. There are optional portable or permanent toilets with window and privacy curtains; lights, and an optional self-tacking boom kit to fit working jib.

FOR RAClNG she has a variable-position keel with easy-control winch to let you fine-tune performance; a clean-sweep deck for minimal wind resistance; full-length aluminum toe rails that eliminate need for genoa track because blocks may be positioned anywhere and changed easily underway; and a thru-hull pIvot-up rudder that's controlled from the tiller.
