2008 Rhodes 22 Pocket Sailor
This is one of the last from this well know custom builder. All updates have been done by his yard to the original one owner's specs. This 22 has it all. The motor has a jack plate for easy raising and lowering of the rarely needed outboard with only 10 hours.
This Rhodes 22 has a new, never used main sail, new sheets (sail lines), fresh bottom paint and too many new items to list. This boat has always been in fresh water (on the Potomac) and has seen little to no use. Unless you buy a new one this is the closest you will ever get to a new one.
This may be the last chance to own a Rhodes 22 by an Iconic builder know by few and revered by many as a master pocket sail builder.
She has been maintained at the factory in North Carolina where, the bottom was professionally repainted. The boat has a 2008 8hp Yamaha T8 engine. It had a full service before it was brought to the factory and ran perfectly. This boat includes all standard equipment including upgrades as follows: cushions and 175 genoa. There is a sink with an electric faucet pump, a one burner butane stove and a large "built-in" cooler (easily removable) in the galley area. There is a separate head with a flushing toilet, holding tank or macerator.
The design of this boat makes it very stable on the water, virtually impossible to capsize. It sails single handedly with no modifications and has room for the whole family with a cockpit 7'4" long and nearly 8' wide. It is a delightful pocket sailer. It can be sailed in light or high winds thanks to its innermast furling system, eight stays plus the 175% 200-sq. ft. genoa is roller-furled on the fore-stay and 100-sq. ft. mainsail rolls up into a 26' mast. With its 1.5 foot draft the Rhodes 22 can be sailed in 20" of water with the board up.
