The Santana 22 is an American sailboat, that was designed by Gary Mull and first built in 1966. The design is currently out of production.[1][2][3]

The boat was built by W. D. Schock Corporation in the United States from 1966 to 2010. Some were also built in Australia by the Triton Boat Company. A total of 800 were completed.[1]


The Santana 22 was Mull's first design, commissioned by Bill Schock, whom Mull had met in 1965. Mull described the design process, "Bill Schock kept saying, 'What would you do if you were going to draw a boat that would be faster than a Cal 20?' That was the real yardstick boat at that time. We were sketching on the backs of napkins, as we do. "Right after that lunch, I had to fly to New York, and when I came back, there were all these messages on the desk, 'Call Bill Schock; Call Bill Schock,' so I called and said 'What do you need?' And he said 'Where the hell are the drawings?' I said, 'What drawings?' He said, 'You said you were going to design a boat for me.' I said, 'No, you said you were going to call me if you wanted me to.' And he said, 'Well, I called.' I said, 'Oh!' And that got me started designing sailboats. The first one was the Santana 22."[4]

The design competed with the Jensen Marine Cal 20 sailboat in the market.[4]

The Santana 22 is a small recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, an internally-mounted spade-type rudder and a fixed fin keel. It displaces 2,600 lb (1,179 kg) and carries 1,230 lb (558 kg) of ballast.[1][2]

The boat has a draft of 3.5 ft (1.1 m) with the standard keel and 2.5 ft (0.76 m) with the optional shoal draft keel.[1][2][5]

The boat has a PHRF racing average handicap of 249 with a high of 277 and low of 234. It has a hull speed of 5.79 kn (10.72 km/h).[2]
