As you can see from the above advertisement banner which appeared in the Practical Boat Owner magazine in December 1984
and the newspaper article to the left, the Dockrell 22 was first manufactured in 1973 and was one of a range of yachts built by :-

Dockrell Yachts Ltd
Parkwood Road, Tavistock, Devon, England.
and
1839 RT 46, Parsippany, New Jersey 07054, USA.
Production continued until about 1995.

The range Dockrell consisted of the 17, 22, 27 and 37 foot models. The 27 was built to similar specifications to the Hurley 27 which was also built in Plymouth at Hurley Marine Ltd.

The Dockrell 27 article on the right appeared in the South West Yachts & Boats in July 1989
