1978 Pearson 323 Sloop Sailboat in Mattituck, New York

Stock #126400

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

The Pearson 323 is built on a solid fiberglass hull, with a full keel (4,500 pounds of ballast) and a skeg-mounted rudder. The masthead sloop rig provides nearly 500 square feet of sail area with a large (284-square-foot) headsail. Auxiliary power is the standard 30-hp Atomic 4 engine with V-drive, mounted under the companionway.

The boat sleeps five. (The early starboard quarter berth was eliminated in favor of a nav station.) The private master cabin is forward, with a V-berth, bookcase and alcove storage. The enclosed head (with optional shower) is adjacent. Moving aft, the main saloon provides bench seating to port and starboard -- convertible to berths -- a single to port and a double to starboard. There's a folding table on centerline.

The L-shaped galley is set at the foot of the companionway, to port, with a standard sink, two-burner stove and icebox. A nav station is positioned across the way, to starboard. Both are convenient to the cockpit. Accommodations include a quarter berth to port.

BACKGROUND

The Pearson 323 was produced by Pearson Yachts in Portsmouth, R.I., from 1976 through 1983. It was designed by Bill Shaw, who was chief designer of the America's Cup defender Columbia while he was with Sparkman & Stephens. The 323 was designed as a comfortable, seaworthy and stylish cruising boat. As Shaw himself says, a boat should be "safe, attractive and a delight to sail." The formula worked; 385 Pearson 323s were built during its 8-year production run. Pearson Yachts closed in 1991, later emerging as TPI (Tillotson-Pearson) Composites, then as Pearson Composites. Today, it's known as the Pearson Marine Group, of Warren, R.I., the builder of True North, Alerion and North Rip boats (www.pearsonmarinegroup.com).
