Gallion 22

Ian Hannay designed and built two boats in GRP

under the Galion name at the end of the 19605

and beginning of the 19705 of which this is the

smaller and the most successful. The other

was the Galion 28. A sharp racer in her day

(1968), particularly in the JOG classes, she

also managed a reasonable cruising

accommodation. The high, Van de Stadt styled coach roof creates 5ft 9inch (1.7)

headroom under which are four berths

two of which are claimed to be 7ft (2.1 m)long. A good number

survive and make reliable and

economical small family

cruisers. Most are outboard

powered but a few had Vire

petrol inboards.
