Pros:
Cons:

Designed by Carl Alberg, the Electra was the precursor to the later Ensign. Both share the same hull; however the Ensign has a small Cuddy Cabin. The Electra has a small doghouse and a larger cabin for overnighting. Also while the Electra has a full rig the Ensign has a fractional rig. At 22.5' LOD and a displacement of 3000#, the Electra heels over and digs in when sailing in about ten knot - twenty knot winds. She is stable with a full keel. The boat sails wet in weather and features teak spray rails. Our Sprindrift is complete with jiffy reefing and with all lines lead aft she is easy to single hand. Her strengths are her design and rugged construction. Due to the Electra's size the cabin accomodations are a bit cramped. I enjoy the stability and excellent sailing characteristics of the Electra. She is a comely boat to look at and sailing gets exciting when you are only a couple of feet above water when rolling along at ten knots! We enjoy our boat immensely; our only wish would be for a trailer to trailer sail her.

Pros:
Cons:

If you are considering a boat in the 22-25 foot range, you must give serious consideration to the 22.5" Pearson Electra. Designed by Carl Alberg, these full keeled beauties are built solid, fast, and easy to handle. They are somewhat like miniature versions of larger Alberg designs, such as the Alberg 30. There is space for two to cruise for a week or so comfortably, and the large cockpit is a great place to relax and have a cocktail at anchor. Belowdecks, it is very cozy, as long as crew are not over 6'2" or so. Compared to similiar sized boats, such as the O'Day 22, the Electra's design heritage and bulletproof construction is vastly superior.
