From Practical Sailor April 19, 2020:
The Chrysler 22 was designed by Halsey Herreshoff. The 22 was conceived as a trailer sailer with a swing keel that draws just 1′ 11″ up.
The boat displaces anywhere from 2,650 lbs. to 3,000 lbs. (depending on which brochure you believe), a bit heavier than most trailer sailers of this length.
The hull is of hand-laid fiberglass with a full inner liner. Foam flotation was standard. Nearly all owners agree that the hull is heavily laid up, and that the spars are larger sections than one would expect on a boat of this size.
In terms of stability, initial tenderness was a frequent comment, though ultimate stability was not a concern. The boat is claimed to be self-righting, even with the keel up. “Goes to about 22 degrees quickly, then stops. Cannot put rail under,” said one owner.
The Chrysler 22 is still much admired for its clean lines and good looks.
One should be able to buy a Chrysler 22 for somewhere between $4,000 and $5,000, depending on condition and equipment, the trailer and motor being the two most important pieces of extra gear. For an introduction to the joys of cruising, we think it’s one of the better mid-70s trailer sailers
