The Pearson Vanguard is a vessel created by Phil Rhodes. She was designed at the beginning of the mass-produced fiberglass boat period, and that means they were designed as if they were going to be built of wood. Built of fiberglass instead, they were greatly over built as no one had a clear idea of the strength of fiberglass. The result was a boat
with long overhangs, narrow beam, and a thick hull.
