Welcome to the Owners Association and info' guide for the
Anderson 22 and now also Hunter 701
22' and 23' British lift keel cruiser/racers
with transatlantic performance
The purpose of the Association is to pool assistance and experiences for owners,
facilitate 'meet-ups', and provide information to prospective owners, aiding the class profile.
Even now the Anderson is something of a well-kept secret;
those who know of the boats' capabilities seek them out, others are pleasantly surprised !
Membership of the Association is £7.00 P.A,
This goes towards, but does not cover, website hosting , copying & postage costs incurred.
It is in the interests of all Anderson owners to support this Association, both for useful information and the maintenance of the class profile - and with it the boats' value...
Owners - note updated 'Spares' section, Keels, Anchor hatches & Outboard Well Plugs now available.
The 'Sailing Today' magazine featuring the review 'Legendary Lift keeler' was out on the 3rd November 2006 ( December Issue );
to say this is worth a look for anyone interested in an Anderson 22 is an understatement.
Please note our 'reviews' section above; Practical Boat Owner also gave a very favourable review.
Both are available from the respective magazines, see the link on 'reviews' for the PBO article.
Please note, though Duncan Kent's review is very favourable - who can argue with such phrases as 'Legendary Lift Keeler', 'Sought After Classic' & 'Seaworthy as any ocean cruiser',
it was stated that the forepeak is only large enough for children. A good few owners beg to differ,
having carried out cruises with 3 or 4 adults on board.
