Designed by Jim Taylor of Marblehead Mass, the Spindrift 22 is a close cousin of Taylor's better known Precision 23. This boat is a fast, well manufactured coastal cruiser.

With a partial keel and retractable centerboard, gunkholing is simple.

The pop-top and beautifully laid out interior (2 burner alcohol stove, sink and porta-potty. V-berth and 2 full length berths, with 6'+ cockpit seats.) make this a great weekender.

I have found the Spindrift 22 to be very handy, when trailering. I have made several modifications to the mast raising system to ensure safer set up. The boat handles very well and has shown itself to be faster when the wind is on the port side. The cabin is very comfortable and well laid out for a boat this size. I love it's shallow draft (16") which comes in handy when sailing the Florida intercoastal or one our local lakes.

Max draft 4'8",
Ballast 600 lbs,
Displacement 1990 lbs,
Ballast toweight ratio is 30%,
PHRF Rating 258,
Designer is Jim Taylor,
She has a pop top, Deep sink (starboard side), Double Origo alcohol stove (port side),
Spacious V berth, Two quarterberths 7' long,
Anchor locker

I have been very pleased by the way she sails, though she is not particularly fast. Her cabin is better than most I have seen for her size. She uses a swing centerboard with a shoal keel. Bow and Stern pulpits with lifelines between. I am interested in hearing from other owners about their Spindrift 22's since they have not been made since 85 making us a relatively rare breed.

I have owned my Spindrift 22' since 1993 and have found it to be an excellent lake boat. Not the fastest 22', but very stable and comfortable for even a four day weekend. This is really the boat I learned to sail on. Very few problems other than having to renew the lifeline stanchion mounting plates. No sign of any blistering and she stays in the water eight months a year. The interior layout is particular comfortable for a couple. I've added a Magna grill/stove to facilitate meal preparation. The swing centerboard is nice for exploring shallow bays.

Currently, located on Kentucky Lake and its easy enough to get the sails up and going even for an hour or two sail. I do have to step the mast to get under a bridge to go into the main lake for longer outings. Would like to hear what modifications other owners have made to aid in getting the mast up and down.

Cons:

In May,2003, I purchased my 1984,
Spindrift 22. I love the boat for it's aesthetics, accommodations and
sailing behavior. The boat's home is in Door Co., Wis., where I plan to retire in 2004. I would like to make contact with anyone that has a manual for the boat and/or any old literature that has line drawings of the boat (elevation & plan). The only modification I'm thinking about would be to add a mainsheet traveler. The question is, how to mount it high enough above the tiller? I welcome any correspondence with other Spindrift owners.

It appears that the last post here is about 11 years old. I'm buying a 1985 spindrift and was wondering if you guys wouldn't mind sharing some of the modifications you made to make stepping the mast easier.
Thanks
