1983 Pearson 303 Cruiser Sailboat in Jamestown, Rhode Island

Stock #185326

This is a very well maintained and upgraded 1983 Pearson 303 sloop. The boat has had 3 owners and it appears that she has benefited from good longterm care.

Bill Shaw and Pearson Yachts were well know for making successful club racer/family cruising sailboats and this is one of the more popular ones they produced. Designed to follow up the well known Pearson 30, this boat was a major improvement in stability and interior space over it's predecessor.

While having a modest 30' length, the nearly 11 foot beam and high freeboard gives the interior space usually found on much larger boats. With ample room to sleep 6 you can cruise comfortably for extended period.

The P303 has a traditional and well thought out sailing plan. Sloop rigged with a masthead design, she has the equipment needed to allow easy single handed sailing. RF headsail is on Harken gear. A traveler is mounted on the well designed bridge deck and there are Lewmar S/T primary winches. Both main and headsail are easily managed from behind the wheel by the helmsman. The sails are both newer and both made of a moderate racing grade material.There is a huge lazarette under the port seating area.

Below is where the P303 really set herself apart. There is ample headroom throughout the cabin interior and space for you and all your gear. A large vee berth forward is provided with ample storage as well. Opening ports (screened) and an overhead hatch give both light and air to the area.

Aft to starboard is a large enclosed head with shower. Big enough to be functional (not the case on many sailboats of this size) it has molded features that make it easy to keep clean. Opposite is a large hanging locker with secure latching to keep all secure.

A bulkhead mounted table has a drop leaf - it can be secured up out of the way, used with the leaf down to seat to or fully deployed to seat the whole crew. Collapsible water and waste containers are under the starboard settee and additional storage is under the port side with more storage outboard of both.

A full galley is aft to port and a large quarter berth is aft to starboard. The galley consists of a two burner propane stove operated by portable tanks, and ice box, storage drawers and cabinets as well as both manual and pressure water feeds.

Two highly desirable upgrades come with the boat. One is a solar panel charging system to keep the batteries full. The panel in mounted on the hatchboard and there is a monitoring system mounted by the quarter berth. The other item is a stainless steel outboard hoist. Designed to be mounted to the aft rail, it make the process of lifting the engine from the dinghy safe for the crew and for the outboard!

I was on this wonderful boat recently and took all the photos. Please call me today to discuss her- I'd be happy to answer any questions, arrange a showing or discuss an offer. You will not be disappointed.

Boat appears to be in quite good condition both cosmetically and mechanically. Owner reports that all systems are up to date on maintenance and that all equipment is working as designed. There is evidence of minor keel damage that has been professionally repaired.
