Channel Island 22 - £12,750

Of the Channel Island 22 "Motor Boat and Yachting" magazine in an article July 2016 by Peter Cumberlidge said, "Despite being an old design the Channel Island 22 remains an admirable prototype for a small capable seaboat with its cuddy and awning protecting the helmsman from heavy spray. .....their workboat style hulls established a reputation for seaworthiness in rough conditions. Whilst their accommodation is simple, these pocket cruisers have ranged surprisingly far."

This 1979 version, "Freedom", is in good condition. As the owner says, she is not immaculate but everything works fine and the important kit, engine, rudder, solar panels, batteries, fuel tank (new 2003) etc is in first class order. As well as the all over cockpit tent cover the boat has a very neat (virtually new) cockpit cover that allows the rain to drain off rather than lodge in the top of the cover, which is great for when the boat is ashore.

Freedom offers hydraulic steering. The Mermaid engine was new in 1985 and was reconditioned 1996 with original Mermaid instrumentation. It has done a maximum of 800 hours since. A new Vetus 133 litre fuel tank was installed 2004, and there are two 50 litre reserve tanks. She is shaft drive with 4 blade propeller.

She has been well looked after and continuously updated since the present owner bought her in 1996. The hull was repainted in International Toplac in 2003.The present owner in 2002 had the designer, Alan Buchanan, modify the rudder arrangement. She now has a semibalanced stainless steel rudder on a skeg, which also protects the propeller.
