The Marshall 22 is just the boat for fun-filled family cruising; a rugged individualist. Her 2´ draft permits gunkholing almost anywhere, yet she is an extremely stiff and seakindly sailer. Roomy enough for a family of four, with lots of extra storage space below. The sloop rigged version of the Marshall 22 has proven to be a winner. Ideal for those who prefer greater sail area and more sail-handling, combined with traditional design. Stability and performance are excellent, with no sacrifice in room or comfort. All lines are handled from the cockpit. No headsails or backstays to worry about. In a sudden squall, you can "reef" by simply dropping the peak of the sail. By design, catboats have a large beam, thereby accomplishing a stiff and stable plane of sailing. The cockpit on the M-22 is self-bailing. Coamings are high to keep out water. In addition to sailing upright, the boat offers a spacious cockpit. The cabin is surprisingly roomy below for the size of the boat, and is large enough for truly ample accommodations. The boat is built with alternating layers of woven roving fiberglass, and 1 1-2 ounce fiberglass mat. Special Airex coring is used in the cabin tops where a full fiberglass laminate would add too much weight. Each boat has wood trim and joinerwork that exceeds the standard of the previous boat built. Fiberglass construction keeps costs of ownership to a minimum. Their boats now number over l200, and are sailed from Maine to Florida, the Gulf Coast, and the Caribbean.
