1978 Pearson 31 Cruiser Sailboat in Cleveland, Ohio

Stock #222759

This Pearson 31 has spent her entire life in freshwater and has several features and upgrades that make her special including a Yanmar diesel engine.

Another upgrade is the full spinnaker gear: spinnaker pole, a pole track on the mast, a pole topping lift and downhaul, two extra halyards with associated halyard winches, cleats, and an extra set of winches on the cabin top for the spinnaker sheets and guys.

There is the additional quarter berth which provides sleeping room for an extra person on board. The layout also provides easy access to the components that
are aft of the engine (such as the fuel tank, packing gland, steering gear, etc.)

Information On Condition

The boat is in good condition. The deck appeared to be solid and clean. Cushions are in good condition with no evidence of tears. Some of the teak has been replaced with PlasTeak, other teak is good shape but in need of some refinishing such as swim ladder and aft bench. Holding tanks for water and waste have never been used by this owner and are not hooked up. New mast lights were purchased but not yet installed. The refrigerator has been removed and space left for the new owners to decide how to use the space, for refrigerator, stove, or storage. The hour meter is not working, hours unknown.

Replaced all teak handrails, cockpit cubby oval trim, and plywood companionway boards and trim with PlasTEAK in 2017. Fuel filter replaced in 2018. Replaced traveler line in 2018. Kenwood Bluetooth/SiriusXM/CD stereo with remote control and 2 external marine speakers in 2018.

Seller performs all regular maintenance himself.
