The Pearson 40 Sloop comes from the tradition of prestigious working vessels that evolved along the New England coast. Bill Shaw designed and built many of the recognized sloops during the old days of sailing, whereas 71 in total were made. Few are left. This one is a treasure! The owner loved her for the last 15 years.
She is constructed of balsa core to fiberglass but retained both the performance and beauty of the original wood boats.
With her large mainsail, she moves in the merest whisper of a breeze while the retractable keel holds course and facilitates self-steering. The boat is stable, strong AND FAST. A sheer delight even in high-wind conditions that leave other boats at their moorings. The 8-foot cockpit welcomes guests and stays dry with the fully enclosed dodger.
The mahogany-trimmed cabin has standing headroom and enough space for an afternoon nap by the whole crew of seven, or even for several days of cruising.
Dinghy included: with Mercury 2HP 4 Stroke outboard 7 yrs old
Excellent condition due to ongoing work being performed diligently. Owner was in the marine industry and had many contact to get work performed and labor done for him. This has been his hobbie and passion for decades. He currently is varnishing the Vessel with 5 coats of LO Just because it is time. The only thing next to do is to pull her out of the water and bottom paint.
Engine has been rebuilt inside and out.
