The Alberg 22 has numbers that a larger offshore boat would be proud to have. Good capsize ratio (1.9 vs 2.42 for the fin keel Catalina 22 for example) and is heavy enough to be more comfortable as well. Not quite as nimble as other lighter boats but steady and comfortable. Pretty as well. The main difference between the Alberg 22 and say an Alberg 30 is size and amenities.
In the era of wooden boats most non racers had a long keel and this carried over to the earlier days of fiberglass.
