1980 Pearson 40 Sloop Sailboat in Bellingham, Washington

Stock #193949

1980 Pearson 40 with a Westebeke inboard model,

#79 hull of the Pearson 40 model.

The flush deck design is the signature feature on the overall hull.

Often overlooked - this is a particularly advantageous opportunity for anyone in the market for a solid cruiser. Comfortable and offshore capable, the centerboard design allows for gunkholing in the thinnest of waters.

This boat was designed to offer a luxurious sailing experience. It's roomy with a generous beam of just under 13' (12'5"). The layout is well thought out for easy entertaining and comfortable cruising.

With a shallow draft of 4', you can adventure into many waterways with ease.

You can't go wrong with the shallow draft, generous deep cockpit, and the flush deck.

Pearson 40 design by William Shaw is a grand dame sloop and the flush deck was a surprising innovation

Built with a cored hull

Teak on the exterior and Mahogany interior - well maintained freshly oiled. Stunning. These details are what makes this an outstanding sailing vessel - the whole enchilada!

DOWN BELOW:
The interior plan is straightforward. A V-berth cabin is forward with a small dressing seat and plenty of storage.

The head is next aft to port with a hanging locker and a bureau opposite.

The saloon includes a drop-leaf centerline table that accommodates six and pilot berths with built-in leeboards.

It is hard to resist not turning these berths into storage areas but they do make excellent sea berths, up and out of the traffic flow.

The settees slide out to make comfortable berths.

Enjoy preparing meals in the fully functioning U shpaed galley. - its starboard and includes double stainless sinks and the stove with oven located outboard.
6 cu' Refrigeration - Sea Frost
3 Burner stove w/oven

There is ample counter space, useful fiddles and a huge fridge. Plenty of lockers for food and utensil storage behind the stove and facing aft.

The navigation station is opposite the galley. The desk can accommodate a full-sized chart with storage below. There is also space to mount instruments and repeaters on the partial bulkhead.

A small quarter berth is aft, which has been converted to storage on most boats.

The interior is nicely finished with mahogany and ash.

All running rigging and standing rigging is over-sized. The boom vang is removable.

Pulled every year. Bottom paint and boat detailed and waxed in OCT 2018.

"Nearly round, there is a trace of a keel at the lowest point and the original rudder is mounted on a full skeg.

The tendency is to think that stability has been compromised, but that is far from the case. The boat is fairly heavy, displacing nearly 23,000 pounds. Lead ballast of 12,200 pounds, or more than 50 percent, keeps the boat on its feet. The angle of positive stability is 129 degrees and that's a good number for offshore work.

The board-up draft of just 4 feet, 3 inches opens up shallow cruising grounds that are normally off-limits for 40-footers,
emphasizing the versatility that devotees love.

With an air draft of just under 60 feet, the P40 carries 802 square feet of working sail" - SAILING MAGAZINE
