Marblehead 22

Designed By Westlawn Alumnus Doug Zurn

Designers Comments:

Zurn Yacht Design, in collaboration with Samoset Boatworks, is pleased to announce the debut of their latest creation, the Marblehead 22 DS — single-line sailing at its finest.

Above the waterline, the Marblehead 22 appears as a true classic: a nar-row-beamed hull accented by a plumb stem, sweeping sheer, counter transom and varnished coaming boards. Below the water she’s all per-formance. A fine entry gracefully transitions to a powerful mid-section that finishes with just enough rocker to bring the sea peacefully back together. The low center of gravity and efficient lift of the bulb keel com-bined with the balanced spade rudder contribute to the Marblehead 22’s ability to effortlessly climb to weather.

The weather deck is open and uncluttered, featuring wide, flat surfaces around the cockpit to comfortably accommodate several crewmembers. Control lines from the North mainsail are all led to the middle of the cockpit where either the helmsman or crew can adjust the mainsheet, cunningham or outhaul (a.k.a. “snotter” to wishboom traditionalists). The 45-pound, Hall Spars ™, carbon-fiber, un-stayed rig is designed to work in unison with the sail to provide power in the light air, while bending off to open the leach and reduce power in the gusts, keeping the boat at an optimal heel angle for a smooth, comfortable, fast sailing experi-ence. The 11’ 9” of usable cockpit space is nestled between lockers aft and a small cuddy forward for stowing gear.

Speed, stability, and good looks combine to ensure hours of pleasure on the water, by oneself, or with a crowd.
