Cast Iron keels. Later versions housed the engine in the transom locker using a pivot method similar to the 20+. Otherwise as per the K20 (Mk1).

KINGFISHER 20+ 1967 to 1978. Sail Numbers 268 to 464
Rudder shaft inboard through the transom, engine on swivel mechanism within the transom locker, hinged fore hatch located on fore cabin roof. There is also a long cockpit version primarily designed for the American market. Extra 70lbs of weight.

KINGFISHER 20+JR 1975 to 1978. Sail Numbers as K20+ but with JR at the end of the number. Sail number. 414JR is the oldest member number, 412JR being the earliest I''m currently aware of.
As 20+ but junk rigged. Fore hatch back on fore deck because mast stepped though the fore cabin roof. Came with either standard windows or portholes.

KINGFISHER 22 1978 to 1981. Sail Numbers 465 to x
This is identical to the K20+ except for a change in appearance when marketed by Kingfisher Yachts. The renaming to K22 was directly related to the boat length of 21''7" . This model was listed in the P.B.O. guide to yachts in 1978 as the Hasler KINGFISHER 22.

KINGFISHER 22JR 1978 to 1981. Sail Numbers as K22 but with JR at the end of the number.
