The Marlow-Hunter 22 is an American trailerable sailboat that was designed by Glenn Henderson as daysailer racer and first built in 2010. It is a development of the 2003 Hunter 216, but with the hull built of fiberglass, instead of thermo-plastic[1][2][3][4]

The design was originally marketed by the manufacturer in 2010 as the Hunter 22, but was usually referred to as the Hunter 22-2 to differentiate it from the unrelated 1981 Hunter 22 design. When Marlow bought the company in 2012 it was officially renamed the Marlow-Hunter 22.[1][2]


The design is built by Hunter Marine in the United States. Production started in 2010 and the design remained in production through 2018.[1][2][4]


The Marlow-Hunter 22 is a small recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass. It has a fractional sloop B&R rig with no backstay, a plumb stem, a rounded, open reverse transom, a transom-hung rudder controlled by a metal tiller and a lifting keel. It displaces 1,700 lb (771 kg) and carries 500 lb (227 kg) of lead ballast.[1]

The design emphasizes cockpit space at the expense of lower deck accommodation. It does have a V-berth in the bow and room for a portable head. In 2018 the manufacturer's base price was US$29,990.[4]

The boat has a draft of 3.50 ft (1.07 m) with the keel extended and 1.00 ft (0.30 m) with it retracted, allowing beaching or ground transportation on a trailer.[1]

The boat is normally fitted with a small outboard motor of up to 10 hp (7.5 kW) for docking and maneuvering.[1]
