The Catalina 22 is a popular sailboat produced by Catalina Yachts. Its hull measures 21 foot 6 inches (6.55 m), which is rounded up to 22 feet (6.7 m) for use in the model's name. First produced in 1969, it is one of the longest continuously produced sailboats in the world. The boat is one of five charter members to the American Sailboat Hall of Fame.
As of 2007, there have been three versions:
The original, Mark I, produced from 1969 to 1985, with approximately 13,000 built.
The "New Design", produced from 1985 to 1995.
The Mark II, produced from 1995 to 2004.
The Catalina 22 Sport, produced from 2004 to current.
These boats have been manufactured with three keel variants: swing Keel, fin Keel, and wing Keel.
The Catalina 22 has also been manufactured in Australia and marketed as the Boomaroo 22 before being relaunched as the Catalina 22. The design was produced in Europe as the "Alacrity 22" (later known as "Jaguar 22") manufactured in the United Kingdom.
