The Cape Dory 22 is a compact yacht with "big boat" features. She's available in two versions: CD22 outboard or CD22D inboard diesel. Trailerable and easily handled, the Carl Alberg-designed sloop-rigged Cape Dory 22 goes anywhere, from a lazy afternoon sail on an inland lake to overnight coastal cruising.

The Cape Dory 22 "full-keel" design keeps her safe and stable on all points of sail. This beamy, high aspect sloop drives to windward with ease and speed.

Above decks, generous use of teak and exclusive Cape Dory designed bronze hardware mark the 22' as a true member of the Cape Dory family. The self-bailing cockpit with bridge deck is roomy and comfortable. Below decks, teak and teak trim accent the warm spacious interior. Four opening bronze ports and a Lexan deck hatch provide light and ventilation. In the galley is a deep stainless steel sink, generous storage space and room for an optional two burner stove.
