1981 Catalina 22, “Serenity” (hull #10493) for sale, currently on the hard on her trailer with her mast unstepped.
Serenity is in overall fair shape and is seaworthy. She has had a dry bilge every season we have had her in the water and she has no deck, hatch or porthole leaks. Her bottom is clean and the chainplates are in good shape. Her swing keel works smoothly and she has good rigging and full set of sails in good condition. The kick up rudder is in good shape and the tiller was replaced this year.
On deck she does need some brightwork repairs, but mostly prep & varnish. The interior & wood are in good shape, both in condition and finish. The pop-top and bow hatch both work fine and while the sliding pop-top hatch does need some glass repair, it is fully functional and does not leak. There are a few places where the rubrail has some dock rash and both the cockpit lockers could use new hinges. But the only system that really needs extensive work or replacement is the wiring and lighting and on the C-22 this is not a big job. There is an AM/FM/CD player installed in the cabin, but I do not know if it works.
Most of her cushions have been recovered in solid Navy Blue and are in good condition, but a few are still in their original Brown & Tan covers and need to be recovered. The previous owner also painted the hull freeboard and it is peeling, I can only assume it was not a marine paint and now needs to be prepped & repainted.
That said, Serenity is a great daysailer and can be sailed as she is. Aside from the brightwork and painting, the amount of work needed to bring her up to rights shouldn’t take more than a weekend or three. Anyone with the skills and desire to do so should also be able get her aright without breaking the bank. I took her on with just such a desire but my hand is forced by financial needs above and beyond my desire to own my own sailboat, and I so must sell her.
She is home ported at Gascony Cove in Ingram Bay on the Northern Neck of Virginia, USA.
