Anderson 22 (22ft) lifting keel yacht on a 4 wheel, braked road trailer. Draft with keel down: 4ft 4in, with it raised: 2ft. Please note, the keel does not fully retract, the keel ‘bulb’ sits flush with the hull but remains proud (see photos), necessitating beaching legs (included) if needing to dry out upright on a hard surface.Being sold as a project boat as she requires work and reassembly to finish.I’ve stripped off all the old anti-foul back to bare gelcoat and primed below the waterline with International Primocon. The hull is in good condition with no blistering whatsoever. Any slight imperfections were filled and faired and all previous through hull fittings (marine toilet & speed sensor) have been removed and filled with epoxy resin. This now gives a nice low drag, low maintenance hull.Inside has also been stripped out, leaving only the bulkheads and bunks in place. There is no electrical wiring or instrumentation, apart from the original depth transducer which is still in situ. The inside is essentially a blank canvas ready for a new owner to complete to their own requirements.The main jobs to do would be:Refitting of cabin side windows (4 sheets of 5mm dark tinted acrylic supplied along with the original alloy frames – this gives the option of refitting the frames or fixing the acrylic panes directly to the outside giving a more modern look).Refitting of various deck fittings i.e. stanchion posts for the guard wire, mast step and ‘chain plates’ for the mast shrouds.New standing and some running rigging required – mainly halyards (old items supplied) – the standing rigging consists of stays and shrouds with talurit splices at both ends. These could be replaced relatively cheaply by utilising the original bottlescrews & mast fittings and just getting new wire sections made up with talurit splices at the ends.Reassembly and suitable treatment (i.e. varnish, wood stain etc) of wooden cockpit seats, tiller, cabin roof handrails and washboard.Although looking in good condition, replacement of the lifting wire for the keel would be recommended, as I don’t know its age or usage history. It is easily accessible inside the cabin.The yacht has a new keel plate and Houdini forehatch fitted and comes with beaching legs, winch handles for the sheet winches and keel lifting winch, bunk cushions, backstay adjuster, Plastimo 406-S jib reefing system and outboard well plug. There is no engine included. An outboard of about 5hp would be required, this sits in a well and would normally be lifted out whilst under sail and the plug fitted, reducing drag.There is a set of 3 very good sails, by ‘Banks Sails’, in v.g.c. with very little use (cost over £1500 new):Main sail ‘club racing spec’ in crosscut Dacron, 2 reefing points and new sail cover.Furling genoa ‘offshore cruising spec’ in crosscut Dacron with u.v. strip.No.2 genoa ‘club racing spec’ in crosscut Dacron.There is also a spinnaker (reasonable condition) with pole and the old main and jib sail.The trailer looks a bit untidy but is basically sound with good tyres, bearings and working brakes. It’s the correct trailer for the Anderson 22 and has a winch fitted. There is one small section that could do with repair/welding but is a non-load bearing section.I towed the boat approx. 30 miles to it’s present location without any problem. However, if you were considering towing the boat any significant distance, I would suggest it would be prudent to make sure you were happy with the condition of the trailer first. There is no spare wheel or trailer board.I’m selling the boat as I’m not finding the time to complete her and as I’m paying storage fees, I’d prefer to sell her on. These boats have a good reputation for seaworthiness, well balanced handling and for their size, a good turn of speed.The asking price (or near offer) reflects the work required and the overall condition (please bare in mind she is over 40 years old now and no longer in her pristine youth). For a modest outlay and someone with the time, and practical hands, she could make a nice little boat to enjoy this summer.The boat and trailer is located in Southampton, SO18 1BZ. Other items (sails, bunk cushions etc) are currently being stored at my home, near Basingstoke, RG25 3HY. Any inspection welcome (and encouraged), please message me for further details, questions or to arrange a viewing.
