The Balboa 22 was built by Laguna Yachts, the same company that built the Windrose 22 (page 213), also designed by Shad Turner. If you look closely you will see that both hulls have identical dimensions, though the decks are somewhat different. Both hulls came in two choices of underbody: a swing-keel version (min and max drafts shown above) and a fixed fin-keel version with a draft of 2' 11". Ballast for the swing version is 600 pounds, for the fixed version is 900 pounds. Corresponding displacements are 1,980 (swing) and 2,280 (fixed). The Balboa 22 was only produced for three years, while the Windrose 22, with different deck mold, continued until the company ended production of all boats about 1987. Best features: Poptop gives six-foot headroom when erected. Worst features: Construction is below average—definitely not "yacht quality."
