The Aira 22, which is nominated as European Yacht of the Year 2019 in the category Special Boats, is a versatile all-rounder for small budgets built by Netherlands-based Aira Boats.
The Aira 22, designed as a classic touring dinghy, is available in three different versions. The Aira 22 ClubSailer is a training boat, which is available with a robust rubber boat strake and rubberized nose. This version of the 6.50 m long boat is especially designed for clubs, sailing schools and boat rental companies. It has plenty of storage space under the cockpit seats and in the forward cabin and is available with a flat keel (0.90 m) or lifting keel (1.15 m).
Sailing with the whole family The DaySailer version of the Aira 22 is particularly suitable for relaxed sailing with family and friends. Equipped with seat cushions, padded backrests and a swivel table, this version allows you to sail comfortably on the water. On request, you can also order a cockpit tarpaulin, a slatted frame for the cabin and a 2 x 1.40 m air mattress, which even allows overnight stays on the Aira 22. An electric engine with 1.5 kW, that can be deployed electrically in seven seconds, rounds off the DaySailer version.
Pure sailing fun In the MatchRacer version the Aira 22 comes without engine but with a 25 sqm gennaker and gennaker system to adapt the boat for racing. Thanks to the long waterline and the modern lines, the Aira 22 has very good sailing characteristics and is very stable even upwind. She offers sailing fun for up to six people and is easy to trailer due to her compact size. Therefore, it is a very flexible boat when it comes to the question where you want to go sailing next.
