The Pearson P-22 is a fin keel sloop with 3'6" draft that weighs 2600lbs dry. It was designed as a club racer, but has some minimal amenities below. It is comparatively stiff, and turns on a dime. It's small size makes it easier to get in and out of marinas, and powers well with an outboard of 6-8 hp. It has 7'7" beam, 18'5" waterline and a sail area of approx 217sf.

Weaknesses: iron bolt-on keel (corrosion), deep draft (for it's size), it's rounded bow makes it resistant to pitchpoling, but it also tends to pound in a chop.

Strengths: good windward performance, well made (good quality hardware and sound construction), safe feeling boat (rides over waves, and self-draining cockpit).

This is a great boat for beginners, as it is easy to handle and stable. I have cruised it several times for two week vacations in Long Island Sound, and it has served me well. There is also an active Pearson owner's group with a newsletter featuring advice from the original designer (Bill Shaw).
