With a heavy heart & 2 bad knees, I am selling my lovely ANDERSON 22, No. 139, having cherished & upgraded her for 5 years .
Her original name was ISTIO (Greek for “to sail”)
I am not quitting sailing but I’m going for a classic long-keel boat, a few feet longer, with a bit more headroom. I’m retiring from professional seafaring and I’ll be able to spend more time sailing.
A tough little boat from a class with an off-shore history - including trans-Atlantic, Azores and Biscay crossings. Lifting keel. Designed by the famous Oliver Lee.
This boat was bought to take part in an offshore sailing event and almost completely rebuilt with new gear including mast and boom. The rig has been strengthened with stronger chain-plates and mid-ships stanchions have been secured to the coachroof coaming for extra strength.
There is a mini-pulpit type safety rail, around the mast, for clipping onto in heavy weather if you have to go forward.
Mainsheet traveller replaced with longer one, full width of cockpit.
All control lines for main & Genoa are led back to cockpit so no need to go forward in normal use
Ready to sail and rigged for single-handing.
She has sailed to Scotland, the Isle of Man and England and all around the Irish Sea. She’s stronger and better equipped than many larger boats. The lifting keel allows access to anchorages & berths not normally available to the average keel boat
She has been stripped to bare gel-coat and repainted with International Pre-Kote x 3 & International Toplac Oxford Blue - 3 coats. Decks have been done with International Interdeck Beige non-skid.

She has a bespoke 4 wheeled braked trailer, fully road legal, with built-in trap-door to lower the keel for maintenance. This was designed & built for the boat in 2015 by Maverick Rides in Magherafelt, at a cost of nearly £2, 000. It has never been immersed in SW and it has an axle-flushing system built in, if you do immerse it.
If it goes with the boat, I’ll let it go for less than £1,800 or can be used for re-homing boat & returned. I have A22 owners & others waiting to buy it.
I have a full set of new triple-stitched sails (Main & Genoa) which have never been used.
These will be sold by separate negotiation or for a bargain price if they go with the boat.
I have lots of literature, reviews & magazine articles on the prowess of this “Legendary Lifting-Keeler” plus extensive documentation & photos showing all the love, labour & expense I put into her.
If you’re seriously interested in buying my boat, please email me or call me for more details.
