Built in 1979 by Silva Yates Plastics in Jersey, C.I. to an Alan Buchanan design, the Channel Island 22 is a very popular workmanlike boat. She is easily handled and is especially noted for her sturdy sea-keeping abilities. An ideal small coastal cruiser: tough, fun, safe and capable of taking the ground with her beaching legs. "Freedom" is an exceptionally well looked after example of the Channel Island 22, having been continually upgraded during her current ownership of 15 years (see owner's report in the full spec listing)

"Built in 1979 by Silva Yates Plastics of Jersey for home completion. When I bought her in February 1996 she had a BMC 1500 diesel engine and a non standard wooden wheel-house. Pretty awful!! She came with a 1994 survey report that was fine i.e. no osmosis. I decided to return the boat to her original spec i.e. fibreglass wheelhouse with the top engine option of a mermaid Turbo 4 (155hp) diesel, separate heads compartment and galley to starboard. The work was undertaken by an experienced local boatbuilder using the original wheelhouse moulding, but supplied by the new builders Island Plastics of Guernsey, who had taken over the moulds/marketing rights etc from Silva Yates.
The boat is now exactly the same as the original boats and with the big engine is pretty quick, circa 17 knots. Other improvements include a new 133L Vetus fuel tank in addition to the twin built-in tanks, that hold approx 15 gallons each. They are still connected via a two-way tap so could be used to boost range, but I have never felt it necessary to use them, given the size of the new tank."
