Catalina 22

For those to whom price is all-important,--the catalina 22 is appealing but it's lacking in performance..

catalina sailboat interior

In its 10th anniversary issue in 1980, Sail magazine named the Catalina 22 the boat that had represented the breakthrough in trailer/cruisers in those 10 years. There is no denying the popularity of the Catalina 22: more than 10,000 of the model we review here have been built, and that doesn’t include the Sport models now being sold. For many buyers, the Catalina 22 is their first “big” boat and an introduction to the Catalina line. Many remain with Catalina and buy up within that line.

Catalina is the largest sailboat in the US in dollar volume, and the firm is one of the lasting success stories in the industry. It foregoes national advertising in favor of local dealer-sponsored ads, and has remained a privately owned company while the trend has been toward conglomerate-owned boatbuilding.

Like all manufacturing boatbuilders today Catalina builds boats to a price, making the most of volume buying of materials and hardware, long-lived models, a high degree of standardization, and all the cost savings of high volume production. The Catalina 22 was the first boat built by Catalina.

The Catalina 22 that we are reviewing here was in production from 1969 until 1995, when the Catalina 22 MkII was introduced. During this more than quarter-century of production, several incremental changes were made, with several significant upgrades in 1986, when a wing keel version was introduced.

The boat has been replaced by the Catalina 22 Sport. Introduced in 2004, the Catalina 22 Sport is still in production and it closely adheres to the original boat’s dimensions, and weight.  Although the post-’95 boats have resolved many of the problems we find here in the original, they did so at the expense of a feature that racers admired—a lighter weight hull. So, although it might not have all the improvements of later models, the one we look at here will hold a certain appeal to sailors in areas that are home to active C22’s fleets, as well as to sailors looking to start sailing for under $5K, and aren’t afraid to put a little sweat equity into the boat.

Just as it was when the boat was first introduced, the Catalina 22 is a common landing spot for those who are just beginning to dream of an escape. It is to Catalina’s credit that the 22 continues to sell and continues to be many sailors’ first boat. And perhaps one of the biggest selling points of all, is the broad and consistent support in the form of other owners. There really isn’t anything that can’t be fixed on these boats, and dialed in, they can be fun to sail. One need only drop in on the website for Chip Ford to get an idea of what’s possible with this boat.

Catalina 22


It’s hard to argue with the construction of a boat after 10,000 have been built, but we do. In these early boats the hull-to-deck joint— a plywood reinforced hull flange is joined to the deck with a rigid polyester “slurry” and self-tapping fasteners. This not our idea of ideal construction. The same type of joint is used on larger boats, although we are less concerned because obviously the structure is for a much smaller boat. Larger boats like the Catalina 30 also used this method, and the C30 has enough loyal followers to earn it a spot among our recommended 30-footers from the 1970s.

Catalina 22 has remained essentially unchanged from the day it was introduced in 1969. Only the pivot for the swing keel version was changed about boat #250 and then, according to a Catalina statement, it was done for production purposes. Later a pop-top option was added and now 90% of the boats sold have this feature.

Catalina takes credit for pioneering the one-piece hull liner that has become standard in most high volume small boats. However, it should be noted that the liner is basically a cosmetic component, not a structural member, and the hull must get its strength from the hull laminate and bulkhead reinforcement.

Catalina 22

The swing keel, also chosen by 90% of the buyers, is cast iron and, when retracted, remains substantially exposed (accounting for more than half of the 2′ draft of the shoal draft model). It is a rough 550 lb. iron casting of indifferent hydrodynamic efficiency, but you can order templates for fairing quite easily.

The swing keel is hoisted with a simple reel winch located under a vestigial bridgedeck with its handle passing through a plywood facing. We’d guess that Catalina owners soon become conditioned to its presence, though it can trip those stepping up or down through the companionway.

The drop keel of the Catalina evoked a number of observations from owners in the PS boat owners’ questionnaire. Several note that the keel hangar mounting bolts loosen or seize.  Another reports he had to replace his wire pennant twice. Replacing the pennant requires hoisting the boat high enough to have access to the top of the keel.

As with all Catalina-built boats, decor is a major selling point. The line, including the 22, is attractively appointed. They create a highly favorable impression which has to encourage sales, especially for first time boat buyers.

In fact, the Catalina 22 outside and inside is one of the most visually appealing small boats we have seen. It has enough trim and finish to look pretty. Similarly, her hull and rig, although dated, are well proportioned. It is about her performance and livability that we have the most serious qualms.

Catalina 22


By any objective standard the Catalina 22 is hardly a sprightly performing small boat. There have been too many compromises to performance: trailerability, shoal draft, cockpit space, low cost, and interior accommodations, as well as giving her a placid disposition for novice sailors. The boat needs a genoa jib, a smoother, and more efficient swing or fin keel shape and some hardware of even the most modest go-fast variety. Even then the prognosis is that she will remain a rather tubby boat in an age when much of the fun of boats is in their responsiveness, if not speed.

With almost all the Catalinas having been built with the swing keel, the appeal has been her shallow draft for trailering. Yet even with 2′ of draft with the keel hoisted, the boat has too much draft for beaching. Given the tradeoff in performance, the difficulty of maintenance, and loss of stability, one hopes that indeed buyers of the swing keel 22 have made good use of it for trailering.

The deck of the Catalina 22 is a decidedly unhandy working platform. The sidedecks are narrow and obstructed by jib sheets and blocks. The three shrouds per side effectively block access to the foredeck, and complicate headsail trim and passage of the jib across in tacking. In fact, so difficult is it to go forward on the 22 we recommend getting rid of the lifelines. They are already too low to offer anything but token protection and they anchor near the base of the bow pulpit where they give no protection. Instead, handrails should be installed on the cabin top.

Ironically for a boat as popular as the Catalina, the boat incorporates the most incredible amount of wasted space we have ever seen in a sailboat large or small. In a size where stowage is at such a premium, there is a cavernous unusable space. The entire area under the cockpit and most of the area under the port cockpit seat (except where the gas tank sits) is all but inaccessible. The loss of this space limits stowage to scuttles under the berth bases.

Catalina 22

The convertible dinette which seats only two with elbow room is a vestige of the 22’s design era and the vee berths forward form that combination of bathroom and bedroom that is common on a daysailer of these dimensions. The alternatives, here, have their shortcomings.

The easy solution is to relocate the head to the cockpit when you finally decided to retire for the night.  Otherwise, the settee on the starboard side, and even that berth is shared with the optional galley facility that in use takes up about half the berth area. The Catalina 22s now have a pop-top as standard; most of the cabin top lifts 10″ on four pipe supports. Most owners we have heard from seem to like the system, particularly those in warmer areas. Headroom at anchor is pleasant but we’d rather see room for stowage, sleeping, etc. as well.

One safety point in these older models that is worth raising is the stowage setup for the portable gas tank for a transom-mounted outboard auxiliary. The tank sits on a molded shelf (part of the hull liner) in a seat locker at the after end of the cockpit. This puts a portable gasoline tank inside the cabin.The locker is vented but it is not isolated. This arrangement can allow fuel can to make its way unimpeded to the inaccessible low point right under the cockpit. This design flaw has been corrected in later versions and if you have a boat with this arrangement, we recommend securing all portable tanks above deck until it is fixed.

One of the Catalina’s better features is her cockpit. It is long (7′) and comfortable, a place where the crew can sit with support for their backs, a place to brace their feet, and with room to avoid the tiller. It is unobstructed by the mainsheet that trims to a rod traveler on the stern.


Many boat buyers shop for a boat of this type with price foremost in mind. They probably will get no farther than their local Catalina dealer, where they can get a boat that is the same size and similarly equipped as boats costing far more. It’s apt to be a boat identical to many of those sailing on the same waters. Better still, they are more than likely to have sailing friends who not only have (or had) a Catalina but belong to one of the most widespread and active owners’ class associations in the sport. The whole package has a powerful appeal, especially to a newcomer seeking moral support.

For performance, accommodations and even construction they might do better at a higher price, but with Catalina’s proven staying power through decades of change, they understandably turn to the 22.

At a weight of about 2,500 lbs. loaded for the road plus a trailer, the Catalina 22 can be hauled by most cars. If anything but a jaunt to the boat ramp is envisioned, however, it’s big enough to recommend SUV with a trailer package.

Pearson Rhodes 41/Rhodes Bounty II Used Sailboat Review


Still a useful review! FWIW, I was shopping for a Catalina 22 Sport at the Annapolis Boat Show last fall and Catalina was saying that they were close to $50,000 with common options and the wait time for a new one was 6 months. I realize that this is a small boat in the range of what is on the market at that boat show, but my goodness, were those sales people blasé about selling a boat to me. Ended up with a 5 yo boat for about half that much money. Unfortunately, she is still on the hard until spring in the Chesapeake!

Nice review of the Catalina 22. Out first boat was a Capri 22, which I was told was the “hot” version of the Catalina 22. It has a deep draft keel (6-7’?) and out-pointed every other boat on the lake. We slept aboard once….no fun!

This is a totally misleading article, focused entirely on exaggerated flaws. This article should really be written by someone who has actually owned a C22, and spent more than a cursory time sailing one. IMO, they’re great boats, and a ton of fun can be had with one – but only if the self-gratifying snobbism is left at the dock. The boat is squarely in the sweet spot of carrying costs and sailing fun.

These are great boats for beginners and sailors that want an uncomplicated boat to day sail and overnight on. I have taught ASA beginner classes on the C22. Also one of the popularities of this boat that was not touched on in this article is it’s one design racing class. Large fleets continue to turn out for weekend and national regattas.

No mention is made of stepping the mast. At 77 years of age and somewhat physically fit can I handle it?

Thanks, Bill Tucker

If the C22 is without a roller furler on the jib – stepping the mast is pretty light work. Check YouTube for videos on mast stepping a C22 – there are many good tricks and techniques to be learned. It can be stepped very easily by 2 people, or even just 1 person with a small bit of experience. On boats with a roller furler, stepping the mast is still not hard, but the roller furler acts like a 100 lb wet noodle, so it adds a bit of planning. I have a roller furler – but still, with the proper tricks, it can be done alone. Don’t be discouraged by this article – and I should add, almost all of the criticisms made only apply to the very early models, and the C22 additionally underwent a substantial redesign in 1986. Personally, between the 2, I favor the post 1986 boats, known as the “New design.”

IMO, it’s the best bang for the buck in sailing. It’s no small pleasure to know that as you enjoy the same wind, water and sun as the larger boats, you’re spending thousands less a season than literally everyone else. I could afford a larger boat, but for me – the smaller the boat, the bigger the experience one gets out of it. I’m in it for the love of being on the water. If you’re interested – check out the C22. https://forums.sailboatowners.com/forums/catalina-22.59/

i have a 2005 Sport I’ve owned since new. I’m old and gray, but yes, it’s doable to raise and lower the mast (I have hank on sails). I had a fella build me an folding A-frame that helps. I use the vang and jib halyard, attached at the top of the A-frame, to “lever” the mast up and down under control. I can also use the A-frame with my trailer winch and the halyard.

I love my Sport. Racing is getting behind me, so I’ve “comforted” it up a bit. I have a bimini (installed backwards so it folds forward out of the way for docking and getting underway). I added a “downhaul” retriever line up by the headstay. I attach the line to my genoa/jib so when it’s time to douse, I just “haul the sail down”. That holds it to deck, with the sheets pulled back safely, so that I don’t have to go forward. Winches were moved to the cabin top (helps with halyards, led aft), with ratchet turning blocks at the old winch locations. I can usually hand trim using the ratchet action. Only heavier winds require the winches. Backstay is partial spectra line for adjustment, and the traveler has controls in the cockpit.

I can single hand it all day.

I think the review was pretty harsh. These boats hold up well and sail to their rating. And the OD Class is awesome.

With a chain and a pulley using the main halyard, yes.

Fun to read this review. My parents got one in the mid-’70s and I “inherited” her. My wife and I spent our honeymoon cruise on her, later we packed our 3 kids and a dog in there for a 5-day cruise, and then I fixed her up again for a 25th anniversary honeymoon-reprise cruise. Not a fast boat, but to learn to sail and cruise? Perfect. And growing up cruising in such tight accommodations made the trimaran I have now gravitated towards (a reaction to sailing slowly?) quite tolerable. A perfect starter-boat. Mast-raising is easy if done carefully and slowly with appropriate gin-pole and some “baby-stay” guy wires: the trick is to get the baby-stays to rotate around the same point as the mast-base so they are tight all the way up. Or to have some help keeping the mast straight during raising.

The review does focus on many negatives, but missed the wicked weather-helm under some conditions. It took me years to realize I could simply move the center-of-effort aft by raising the swing-keel some, which helped immensely, despite seeming counter-intuitive (raise the keel to help upwind performance in high-wind conditions? Huh?). Don’t be scared off, but do inspect, for eg, the plywood cores for saturation and rot on older boats, and for signs of separation of the deck from the hull at the bow: I installed a turnbuckle from foredeck to the bow-ring to take the forestay tension when I fixed ours up. Cheers all.

That’s a great tip about the swing keel – makes perfect sense. A minor adjustment can make a difference in that regard.

Way back in about 1978 or so I made a new friend, Tony, that had purchased a Catalina 22 and was docked a few slips away from my dock, at the time, on lake Ontario at Wilson Boatyard in Wilson, NY, I was living on my new Challenger Ketch. Early one nite I noticed Tony on his Catalina 22. Tony was about 60 years old and knew almost nothing about sailing. We talked and he asked me to teach him how to sail his new 22″. We practiced sailing almost every nite with the evening offshore wind. He eventually got up enough confidence and courage to sail across Lake Ontario to Toronto Harbor on the North shore of the Lake where he and his 3 lady guest stayed on the boat and in a motel for a few days. Tony loved his Cataliona 22′.

Catalina 30 Review: Features, Performance and Tech Specs

7th feb 2024 by john burnham / samantha wilson.

Rightboat logo

The Catalina 30 has had a long and illustrious life and remains to this day a favorite on the used market. Over 6,400 Catalina 30s were sold during its 25-year production run starting in 1974, testament to its solid construction, functional layout, ease of sailing, a modest price, and the strong Catalina dealer network. 

So what makes it so popular? While it’s not really intended as a bluewater cruiser, the Catalina 30 handles coastal and inshore sailing with ease. It is ideal for weekends or week-long cruises thanks to its cleverly thought-out interior space. Overall, the Catalina 30 sails well, is a stable design in stiffer winds, and can be sailed single-handedly by a competent skipper. 

Despite several versions throughout its production run, including the MKII, first built in 1986, and the MKIII, in 1994, the basic dimensions of the model remained unchanged: LOA 29’11", beam 10’10", displacement 10,200 lbs., and standard draft 5’3". Likewise, the interior was never altered. Catalina’s approach to the huge success of the 30 seemed to be ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’.

Catalina 30 Key Features 

There have been many versions of the Catalina 30 throughout its long production run, with different configurations. There have been standard and tall rigs, each with a bowsprit option, as well as shoal, wing, and deep fin keels. Following on from the MKII in 1986, the MKIII in 1994 made some noticeable changes, namely a slight widening of the hull aft, which allowed for a transom boarding platform. 

The Catalina 30’s hull, like all of Catalina’s models, is built of fiberglass and polyester resin, with a deck constructed of either balsa or plywood between fiberglass laminates. Belowdecks, the Catalina 30s layout remained unchanged throughout its life. With a wide companionway creating a spacious feel to the cabin, able to accommodate up to four with a separate head, large galley, and cozy saloon, it proved popular and user-friendly. The boat has an aft cockpit with a closed transom.  

While this model undoubtedly ticked a lot of boxes for many sailors, it had a few common problems, as described in various owners forums. Compression fatigue at the maststep on deck and in the bilge under the compression post has been commonly reported over the years and may need to be fixed. Likewise, old wooden spreaders sometimes fail, and leaks and separation may be experienced at the keel-to-hull joint. Ensuring these are all inspected in a thorough marine survey when buying will highlight any issues the boat might have.

Catalina 30 Performance

The Catalina 30 impressively straddles the line between performance and comfort, offering decent speeds compared to competitors of the same era, despite a lower sail/displacement ratio of 15.22. The fin keel version has deeper draft, lowering the center of gravity and providing better performance upwind. A higher ballast/displacement ratio means the Catalina 30 stands up well in stronger winds.

Catalina 25 Interior Upgrades

' src=

The Catalina 25 is the most popular keelboat in its class with close to 6,000 examples produced. The 25-foot mini-cruiser is easily trailerable and a popular sailboat racing option because of its relative spaciousness despite its size, lightweight construction, and reasonable cost. There is a vibrant owners community and despite going out of production, Catalina Yachts still produces spare parts for the model.

Seeing as the first Catalina 25s were produced in the late ‘70s and the last one rolled off the production line in 1994, you will need to upgrade the boat with some modern necessities if you haven’t already. 

When should you upgrade the interior of a Catalina 25?

You can upgrade your Catalina 25 at any time. The only limitation is cost and space. The upgrades will also depend on the model year as the boat underwent a radical design transformation throughout its sixteen-year production run.

The later models of the ‘90s were far more sophisticated than the 1978 models. They would therefore need the least upgrades, at least from a technological perspective. These later models had powerful inboard motors instead of having to rely on an outboard, pressurized water that could be heated at will, and more complex electrical systems. But you can still give the interior a facelift if the stock model doesn’t meet your particular standards.

How should you go about upgrading your Catalina 25?

A catalina 25 in the sea

Upgrading is a fairly intuitive process. It’s your boat, you know what it needs. Cosmetic upgrades are the easiest. Sanding the deck and polishing the decks doesn’t need much skill. Just remember to use gentle cleaning agents to prolong the lifespan of the wood.

As for electronic systems, upholstery, and furniture, you can set up most of them yourself or with the help of a friend. It’s the upgrades affecting the structural integrity of your boat that will require employing a professional if you lack the skills yourself. 

Take installing a new inboard motor for example. If your boat came with an inboard, it’s mostly just a matter of unscrewing the old engine and putting in the new one. If it came with an outboard, however, or if you’re installing a bigger engine, some drilling on the hull may be necessary

Modernization upgrades for you Catalina 25

A lot of modernization centers around your electronics suite. Some of the technologies we may take for granted were either not invented or not in common use when the boat came out. Think of a device like the seakeeper which helps prevent seasickness by stabilizing the motion of your boat. Those things didn’t exist in the ‘90s.

There are other components of the electronics suite that may need to be installed or updated periodically: AIS, VHF, GPS, radar, chart plotter, depth finder, fish finder, Wi-Fi, wind meter, autopilot, night vision, etc. Since the hardware and software powering these technologies gets updated constantly, keeping up with all the latest advancements may not be practical. 

You would find yourself overhauling your electronic suite every year because the new model has a touch screen, better graphics, 3D features, or something else. Not to mention the cost of these overhauls. Doing that once every five years or so should be fine. 

You should always download free software updates immediately but newer paid versions can wait. You don’t need new toys if the ones you have work reasonably well. However, if money is no problem, go nuts. The best approach is to use electronics made by just one or two companies and use a single monitor for display in order to reduce clutter.

Steering upgrades for your Catalina 25

The helm of a boat showing the wheel

These mostly center around making your boat easier to steer. These are things like installing an anchor launcher, roller furling genoa with luff foam, an auto tiller, and running lines through the cockpit or tethering them there. 

These improvements allow you to pilot the boat without needing much help from anyone. You would be very thankful for them if you find yourself alone in rough conditions or carrying a bunch of noobs.

Miscellaneous upgrades for your Catalina 25

Other upgrades are mostly targeted at improving comfort, cosmetic appeal, and plain old upkeep. Things like overhauling the vinyl and the carpets in your helm, sanding or repainting the deck, reupholstering the cabins, putting in new furniture and bedding, changing the faucets, plugging leaks, checking for mildew, adding a freezer or an icebox, etc.

These upgrades are in no way minor. They can require extensive labor and resources over time. In addition to making your sailboat look better, they also improve your mood, make it look newer, and can come in handy when you decide to sell and upgrade to a different boat. Keeping up necessary maintenance also saves you a lot of trouble down the road as poor maintenance often leads to quicker degradation.

Take something like the hull. If you don’t clean it regularly you will not be able to catch and patch up tiny cracks on the fiberglass that tend to widen over time and undermine the structural integrity of the entire hull.

Advice on interior paneling repair

  • Thread starter Monheganlover
  • Start date Apr 27, 2023
  • Catalina Owner Forums
  • Catalina 310


I am in the process of re-bedding all the chainplates and stanchion bases on my 2002 Catalina 310. I have some visible warping and discoloration at the top of the panel above the starboard settee. I've attached some photos. The damage is above the window in the photo and to the left right behind the chainplate tension rod. It feels very dry where the damage is and I haven't seen any leaks. But it sure seems like water damage to me. Once I re-bed everything, my question is might it be possible to remove that panel and replace it with something that at least comes close to matching it? I can see all the screws that would need to be removed and, presumably, so would the internal frame of the window. Any advice on doability and where I might source a panel? Thanks in advance.  



It would probably be easier to repair what you have than try to match it. Hard to tell from the pictures but it looks fixable. If you can remove the panel it looks like you could sand the damaged surface to clean it up (not too much, almost assuredly it's a veneer) and then glue the plys back together and clamp some large flat boards on either side to flatten out the panel. Otherwise, maybe Catalina or Catalina Direct would have a panel. Or you're looking at getting some teak veneered plywood and making a new panel and matching Catalina's finish (which they publish).  

The plastic trim ring inside the port is a "crimp" (?) fit, you can see on the end one of the tabs holding it to the interior metal frame. Grasp and GENTLY pull it towards you to remove, then you can see if metal portlight frame must be removed to remove the wood panel. I don't know what that panel is for matching purposes, the 320 uses a very light colored beadboard.  


Not a knock on Catalina (I've owned a few and currently have a 315), but that panel is probably not particularly robust. My guess would be 1/4" ply with a thin, and I mean THIN veneer of teak. If it was my boat, my first inclination would be to remove that panel and use it as a template to create a new panel with a new one using the same type of veneered ply. I wouldn't attempt a repair on the existing panel, as it's likely warped and damaged into oblivion. That thin veneer will tolerate very little sanding. You can confirm what Catalina used to finish their interiors in 2002, but I'm going to guess that it's some sort of a poly finish, with possibly no stain. Which is good, because that means you don't have to match the stain. I'd start by working on a scrap piece, and see how the scrap looks with a few coats of clear poly. If that looks too light/sterile, then I'd try a couple light stains, or maybe just some sanding sealer to warm it up. One of the nice things about a Catalina interior is that they are reasonably easy to repair.  

Thanks to all! I am going to finish my re-bedding job to, hopefully, stop any leaks if there are any. The water damage could be years old as I have seen no evidence of leaks inside in the 2 years I've owned her. I hope I find that one of the PO did a decent re-bed job sometime in the past. Having finished that, I will wait until she is on the hard this winter and see about replacing the panel. I am going to call Warren Pandy at Catalina and see if he has recommendations for a replacement panel or if they might even have some laying around somewhere. He came through for me when I replaced a port light as he had the original patterns for my model year 310 and was able to cut an exact copy. The other thought I had was to get a piece of the marine plywood that Chesapeake Lightcraft uses in their boat kits. It is light and flexible and close in color, perhaps, with the right light stain, I could match my teak veneer  

I once heard Gerry Douglas tell a bunch of owners "You should just plan on rebedding chainplates every couple years". In our climate and continuous use I've found 7-8 years to be average. When they were building here in California the wood was done by H&R Woodworks, unfortunately the owner passed and that is no longer a source.

Catalina uses Target varnish and you can buy it online from them. It is a water based varnish (seems like watery polyurethane to me). Good stuff. I suspect Catalina does that all in house now as they have a really nice wood and paint shop in the factory, and some pretty talented folks doing that work, which is likely why when I refinished the panels in my forward cabin they looked good, but not that good.

Power supply, accessories, semiconductor, development, further information, grundig yacht boy 700.

Manufactured by Grundig, Fürth .

In the same year, when Grundig presented the first portable receiver with a PLL synthesized tuner, the Satellit 300 , which got a few negative reports because of poor sensitivity and selectivity, Grundig brought out a single conversion superhet with digital frequency counter. This travel radio was slightly smaller and cheaper then the junior „Satellit 300“ and became more successful.

Technical data

  • Principle : single conversion , IF 468 kHz / FM 10.7 MHz
  • Modes : A1 with BFO, AM (A3) , FM (F3)
  • Frequency range : VHF, LW, MW, 6 x SW (1.6 - 26.1 MHz )
  • Frequency dial : analogue dial, digital display 5 kHz
  • Frequency memories : none
  • Signal strength indicator : S-meter
  • Signal processing : two bandwidths, 5 kHz RF filter
  • Features : digital clock, timer
  • Sensitivity : AM (A3) / Selectivity : two IF bandwidths
  • Mains : 110, 220 V
  • Batteries : 4 x 1,5 V ( UM-2 ), 1 x 1,5 V ( UM-3 ) for digital clock
  • 270 x 170 x 55 mm, weight 1.7 kg

The Grundig Yacht Boy 700 is a portable multiband radio with an integrated frequency counter to display the operation frequency. With it's dimensions of 28 x 17 x 6 cm and a weight of 1,4 kg (without batteries), it is still quite well suited for travel use.

The Yacht Boy 700 was the top of the range set of the early Grundig travel portables series with analog bandspread dials for several shortwave bands. In contrast to the „little brothers“, it comes with a digital frequency display and even two IF bandwidths and a BFO .

The set is powered by five UM-2 batteries / baby cells for the radio and an additional UM-3 / AA clock battery, but there is also an integrated power supply that can be switched to 110 and 220 V mains. The antenne is a flexible / rotating telescopic antenna, the set has no external antenna connector.

The set covers VHF / FM boadcast band, long- and mediumwaves and the shortwave band from 1,6 - 26 MHz in five ranges (1,6 - 4,8 / 4,3 - 7,2 / 6,8 - 10,3 / 9,8 - 15,5 / 14,5 - 20,5 and 19,5 - 26,1 MHz ).

At the left part of the front panel, you find the big speaker grille.

In the upper part of the right half of the front panel, the signal strength meter, the time / frequency LCD display and the switch and pushbuttons to set the clock and alarm times are located.

Just below, there are the slide controls for volume and tone, the switches for the two IF bandwidths and the switchable 5 kHz - audio frequency filter and the BFO, at the right a slider switch to select the six shortwave segments and pushbuttons for the SW / MW / LW / FM bands and on/off. The main tuning knob and an additional fine tuning control are located at the right face of the cabinet.

The sensitivity of the Yacht Boy 700 on shortwaves is fair - good, the set is well suited to receive signals from the international shortwave broadcasters and you can even pick up some tropical band signals and some strong amateur radio signals with the BFO switched on.

The most useful feature is the LCD frequency display, which does a very good job to find a station on a certain frequency.

The set has a conventional design with a single conversion superhet circuitry connected to a frequency counter - it has some problems with mirrors due to the 468 kHz intermediate frequency, but in contrast to the Satellit 300, the receiver is quite silent, no synthesizer hiss.

As the Yacht Boy 700 was well priced and offered similar or better performance then Grundig's first digital Satellit 300, it was the one to go for, when you could live without frequency memories.

The Grundig Yacht Boy 700 still makes a fine radio for travelling by car (you would take a lighter set on an airplane, would you…) or for easy listening in the kitchen or the workshop. With the built in frequency display and a clock, it has the most interesting items for a useable shortwave radio. It is interesting that the radio comes with two bandwidths and a separate switchable 5 kHz AF filter, in the earlier Satellit sets you have the same options (two IF bandwidths and an AF filter) switched by the three step bandwidth switch. But in conclusion, the Grundig Yacht Boy 700 is to be considered as collector's item; get one, if you can find one for a few Euros at an online auction.

Very capable portable Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I'm actually on my third YB400. First two succumbed to hard drops on concrete by other people.....long story. These receivers were great company to me for many years while I travelled out of town during the week. I have also taken them with me to the Caribbean and Florida while on vacation. Coolest experience with my YB400 was while in Aruba I was monitoring an Aruba station working the CQWPX CW contest and actually heard my station back in Illinois work him which I was controlling remotely via TeamViewer and Pignology K3ui. I still regularly drag it out onto the patio while I'm grilling dinner. My Grandfather got me interested in SWLing. I think he would have been very fond of this receiver.

It works just fine Time Owned: more than 12 months.
One of my very first 'modern', contemporary manufactured SW receivers, purchased waaaay back in the early '90s, this little guy worked and works just fine for its price point, and even more so for its much lower resale prices.

It was the first receiver I used with a dedicated SSB mode and though it was touchy, I was able to use it pretty well very quickly, and I don't recall it getting too drifty most of the time. Certainly, having long since used much better and pricier receivers, I now consider the YB400's SSB to be worse than mediocre, but not worse than its average used price would promise.

FM sounded nice for such a little radio, and MW/SW AM signals were clear and mostly crisp and intelligible, no worse than on most portables of its size and retail point. In fact it sounded better than the Tecsun 600 I had for a while (which certainly had better SSB but was still not great).

It's not a powerhouse performer, it's not even a decent DX machine, but it's just fine for SW b'cast listening, AM/FM bands and if you don't mind twiddling with a little finesse and patience, amateur SSB can be enjoyed to some extent, too.

Certainly performs well for its current price range.

Three Thumbs Up Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I've had three of these including a silver PE for many years and they work great. Bought 'em all used for very little $. Performance to price ratio is high. Now they aren't meant to compete with high priced pro-grade receivers so one must adjust his/her expectations accordingly.

OK Choice if SSB not required Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
This review is for the almost identical G4000A.
I also own an E5,7600GR, and KA1103, so this review will focus on where the G4000A falls short or exceeds these models.

*Sensitivity/Selectivity on SW/BCB/FM matches or exceeds the previously mentioned models.
*Sound from the built in speaker is richer and fuller.
*Has a non-radio (beep) alarm with snooze
*Push button frequency step control. (7600GR also has additional buttons for same function.)
*Memory system is easy to set and use. (but only 40 presets.)
*Volume control feels smooth and is easy to set anywhere from silent to loud.

*Did I mention SSB? CW was a warbled mess, and SSB voice took forever to tune in a signal that was easy on the other radios, to only halfway intelligible on the G4000A. For an SSB radio I'd rate it 1/5 if I was being generous.
* Overall Control quality. The buttons and switches feel sloppy and cheap compared to the other radios. They work, but don't inspire confidence.
* requires 6 rather than 4 batteries.

So... Buy this radio if you are looking for BCB/SW unit to put on your nightstand with a beep alarm, and use a few memories.

Do not buy this radio if you want to monitor SSB/CW ham transmissions, if you plan to operate mainly on batteries, or have hundreds of presets.

Bought mine in 1994 Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I guess I'd give my YB400 a 5 just because I've been using it almost daily for 15 years and it has served me well. Whether at home, in a motel room or in a tent while camping I've listened to the bands nearly every night. It absolutly isn't the best receiver I own but it is the most versatile and I can always find something to listen to on it. I bet I'm still listening to it 15 years from now too!

Good general use portable Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I've owned mine for seven years. This radio has very good sounding audio. Not particularly good for surfing the bands because of the push button tuning and it's annoying to tune with headphones on. But for casual BCB on SW/AM/FM it's a good radio. Headphone L/R channels aren't balanced in my set until the volume is turned up high then it's too loud, so I have a little in-line volume control to compensate for it. Overall a good general use portable radio.

Very Nice Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I have had my Yachtboy 400 since 2003; bought refurbished from Universal Radio for $99.00.

I have used this radio at home and camping, with internal and external antennas, on MW, FM and SW bands; this radio has been great. It performs well beyond the expectations of a $99.00 radio. It's actually built in a manner that makes portability easy and safe for the radio. The earbuds, external antenna and carrying case included with the radio made the purchase even better.

The radio is great in every aspect with only a few exceptions. The audio is terrible with the built-in speaker. I use an external speaker with the headphone jack and it sounds much better. I am not too fond of the battery level monitor that shuts the radio off when it thinks the batteries are low.

Other than those two things the radio is a keeper even at full MSRP.

I like this little beast! Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I have been a swl for 53 years and have owned many radios from 1926 models to present. I got my YB400pe 3 years ago and really enjoy it. Paid 149 at Radio Shack and it's worth every penny.Remember, it's not a 2 grand tabletop! I would never consider Degens or Kaitos because of a huge gap in coverage. This radio looks great and construction quality is good but not great. Refurbished units can be had for about 99 yankee dollars. Get one--you will like it.

Get One while they are still in good shape Time Owned: more than 12 months.
Hello All,
I have used several portable radios in it's class and must say although the Grundig 400 is discontinued you can still find them on Ebay for
reasonable prices. I have used the KAITO 1103,SONY 7600GR and now have the G4000A which is
just like the 400PE but with a leather case.
I liked the KAITO but it had a VERY SENSITIVE front end and NON CONTINUOUS tuning across the entire spectrum of the shortwave bands. Although the Kaito 1103 charges
it's batteries inside the unit it takes at least 12 hours and while charging the charger/adaptor
introduces a nice "BUZZ" all over the bands.
The Sony 7600GR is nice but doesn't come with an AC power adaptor,no Signal strength meter and not as good sound from it's speaker. Is it really worth the Sync detection to sacrifice those?
For those who like to use a portable SW radio with AA batteries just go to your local Best Buy
and buy those Energizer rechargable batteries that come with a charger. They charge in 15 minutes in this charger unlike the 12 hours in the Kaito. I will list the Pros and Cons of the YB 400 as I see them..

1.EXCELLENT sound from it's built in Speaker
2.Good reception across all the bands
3.Simple tuning and no band switching needed when tuning across the entire SW spectrum like the Kaito 1103
4.SIMPLE memory operation(No goofy pages to use)
5.Memory Tuning,Direct Entry,and auto tuning built in
6.Radio when new comes with manual,real antenna,and power adaptor.
7.Signal Strength Meter
8.Two times
9.Sleep timer
10.Good SSB reception,just takes a little patience
11.unlike the KAITO 1103 this guy has a DEDICATED volume knob,the Kaito you had to hit a button and then adjust the volume! Even with the New G5(I have not had) apparently does NOT have a volume knob,you have to adjust the volume with buttons!
12.well layed out keypad
13.Alarm clock to wake up to radio
14.Good location of the "LIGHT" and "Snooze"

1.a little large for a portable these days
2.No Sync detection
3.No Dedicated LSB/USB like the SONY 7600GR
4.No Tuning Knob.
5.Display light won't "stay on" but bright enough to see what your tuning in the dark. Light will stay on for 10 seconds and go off. If you tune the radio while the light is on by letting go of a button and then pressing the same button you originally pressed or another one in the ten second window the light will stay on.However if you are HOLDING DOWN a button while the light is on the light will go off in 10 seconds so if you want to have the light stay on you have to let go of the button and push it again in the 10 second window for it to stay on OR tap the light on button.

Don't let the poor reviews fool you. I consider this radio to be a favorite of mine and for me it's a little better then the SONY 7600GR

I liked the Sony but if you want to jog through more then 10 memories you have to change pages,the sound is FAIR at best from it's built in speaker and no signal strength meter.
It is a good radio though but I think you get more bang for the buck with a used Grundig 400.

The eHam.net Team, Revision 07/2020.

Europe's Premier Medium Wave DX Club


This review was compiled independently. The Medium Wave Circle and Radio Netherlands has no financial connection with R.L. Drake, the manufacturer of this receiver.

Reviewers: Jonathan Marks, Diana Janssen, and Willem Bos.


The Yacht Boy 500 appeared in most of the Grundig outlets in Europe in the course of October 1993. In North America the situation was different. Some of the US radio dealers we spoke initially disappointed that Grundig North America gave the exclusive distribution rights in the USA for the Yacht Boy 500 to a mail-order house called Willabee & Ward. Their toll-free number is +1 800 367 4534. In 1997 a salesman there told us the Yacht Boy 500 is still available at US$299. That does indicate though that Grundig in North America has brought some of its prices down to more closely match the competition from the Far East.

This radio was first shown at the Berlin Audio and Video Fair in 1993 and initially caused an impact on the European scene. The receiver offers coverage of FM with the Radio Data System, longwave, medium wave and continuous shortwave coverage from 1611- 30000 kHz. Unlike some of the Yacht Boy series, the 500 is double conversion.

The radio has an enormous number of functions with many of the buttons on the front of the receiver being used to do two or more things. Press a button gets you one function. Pressing and holding a button gives a different result. The display tells you what you’ve selected. We gave this radio to some visually handicapped users who reported they had difficulty setting up menus and accessing the memories without help from a sighted person. Things are not helped by a truly terrible translation of the (quite clear) German language instructions. In 1997 this had not been improved much if you want to get a quick overview of how the set works. Pressing 0 we’re told in the manual gives “passage from the ROM table to the normal memory and back again, with transfer into the tuning memory”. Reception may increase during evening and night hours due to “much more better propagation”. Nevertheless keep the instructions at arms length because unless you make frequent use of the memory and scan functions it is easy to forget the correct button sequence.


Many stations in Europe (and a growing number in North America) now transmit a silent data code with FM signals. If the signal is strong enough the radio decodes the data and puts the name of the station on the display. The radio also knows of any alternative frequencies that many be in use and can check to see if these sound better. There are around 100 stations using RDS in the USA. During tests near Baltimore and Washington DC we noted WHFS with an RDS signal on 99.1 MHz. You can’t use the function for DXing though. Weak signals cause too many errors for any RDS decoder to function properly. We found the FM sensitivity best suited to a European environment. During our tests in Baltimore and Washington DC during November 1993, the unit we had purchased had overloading problems with nearby stations. Retracting the telescopic whip helped if you wanted to listen to stronger FM signals. The set also has a signal strength meter on FM (really designed to optimise the RDS feature) which is useful is getting the angle of the FM whip correct for maximum signal.

The radio works off 4 penlight batteries and consumes around 65 mA at normal listening levels. That’s quite economical. We got around 24 hours of listening on a fresh set of batteries. A dual-voltage mains adapter is supplied and if this is used the audio power of the amplifier is noticeably boosted.

Shortwave tuning is achieved by tapping the desired frequency onto the keypad, or moving up and down the dial in 1 kHz steps. If you hold down the TUNE buttons the steps increase to 5 kHz. This set offers SSB (but not sync detection), and comes complete with 95 major frequencies of 9 international radio stations already programmed into it. A further 40 stations can be put in the memory. A 77 mm loudspeaker gives an adequate sound for the size of the radio, and the bass response can be boosted for pleasant FM listening.


The single 3.5 kHz bandwidth filter is narrower than most other portables. That gives a distinctive mellow sound to any shortwave signal. But the shape factor of the filter is only fair/poor. At night in Europe the background noise rises considerably as a result of second and third order intermodulation products. The marine band of 1.8 MHz is full of harmonics from the medium wave band. Although it may look sophisticated, the radio is only really designed for reception of the stronger international broadcasters. The Yacht Boy 206 and 207 offered much quieter results on the 49 metre band for instance, with considerably less intermodulation. We had really expected a bandwidth option for a radio in this price range (in North America the cheaper Yacht Boy 400 has this for much less). The Yacht Boy 500’s mellow audio is something you either like or hate. The audio distortion problems in early models have been solved and dealer stocks are only the new versions.


This is a radio with a lot of functions. If you need simple shortwave performance, we feel the extra frills on the Yacht Boy 500 may be unnecessary and too complicated to use. Once mastered, however, the data bank of pre-programmed stations is handy while travelling and FM audio is great for a radio of this size. In our opinion, shortwave performance is only fair. Results will be better in low signal areas (e.g. US Mid-West and Pacific).
