Hi Jim,

I don''t have a Chrysler C20 but have been looking for one. If you ever run across someone who is looking to sell I would really appreciate if you could let me know.

It seems like 99% of the boats over 18 feet are cruisers with most of the space devoted to the cabin and very little for the cockpit.
I want a bigger boat but mainly for the cockpit room where I would be spending all of my time.

To me it looks like Chrysler had a good idea with the C20 but apparently it didn''t sell all that well as there are not too many out there and no other builder follow suite.

Thanks in advance,

Joe Karp

I have owned a Chrysler 20 for 10 years. I do have considerable information on this boat.

It is simply the biggest small boat that has been built to date. I have mine in a slip in Mission Bay CA and regularly go offshore in it. Herreshof was the consulted designer on this boat, and incorporated design features of larger boats is the sailing design. You can go out for a leisurely family sail and race it the next day.

The Chrysler Sailing Asssociation used to be the best resource for info. I recently went to it and found the links were no longer functional.

If you have specific questions, please feel free to ask

The Chrysler Sailing Association has moved, not died. You can find it at . Same great content is there, with weekly revisions. There are no popups and the pages come up faster than ever.

If you are looking for something with a good cockpit that sails very well I would suggest looking at the Tanzer 22. Comes in both fixed keel and centerboard versions for a few grand. Cockpit seats are almost 8 ft and still fits two for camper cruising. Actually two of us and a black lab spent three days on one. Of course now I have a bigger boat.... Good luck

I just bought my C-20 and it's great. Working on restoring her a little before i get her in the water. Does anyone know what years the boats were built in? thanks

Chrysler 20 Owner also
Just wanted to say, my wife and I have a Chrysler 20. We actually bought it last year (2006). But we didn't actually get it registered until yesterday (finally).

We still need to do some clean up and some minor repair, not to mention actually learn how to sail. :)

Anyway, I hope to hear more about other Chrysler 20 owner's boats.

But we've got time.
