Repowered in 2009 with upgraded 55 HP Westerbeke as well as many other upgrades including new LED lighting, new cushions, Max Prop, Tacktick electronics, new Force 10 propane stove, this classic Pearson is well-kept by a knowledgable owner who does the right things to keep her ship-shape. This shoal-keel/centerboard version needs only 4' - 8" of water making exploring inlets safer as well as opening up more docking or mooring options. 2 cabins and 2 heads are rare to find in a sailboat in this size range, never mind one with sleek classic lines. Priced aggressively, this boat is teed up for someone with realistic older-boat expectations looking for a good deal.

New Westerbeke 55C-Four 55 HP diesel installed in 2009 along with a new tachometer which does not have an hour meter. Hours were estimated at less than 100 in 2012 and current owner estimates 60 - 70 additional hours between 2012 - 2018 for a conservative estimate of 200 hours today.
Areas of moisture, cracking and delamination in the deck have been noted during a pre-purchase survey in 2012 and follow-up inspection in 2016. Copies of survey reports available upon request.
The boat was purchased by the current owner in 2012 in Stonington, CT and relocated to next harbor over in Noank, CT where she has been since. Some upgrades of equipment, particularly the new engine and wiring in 2009 are noted, but the history of prior owners is unknown.
The current owner uses the boat lightly with an occasional summer cruise to nearby Block Island and mostly daysailing in Fishers Island Sound. It should be noted that the boat is kept at the mouth of the Mystic River so engine operation is minimal between dock and sailing area, hence the low estimated hours on 2009 engine.
As has been the routine, the boat is currently on the hard at a Mystic, CT marina with all systems properly winterized. Interior cushions and some other equipment have been removed for the winter and stored in a dry environment at the owner's home. The boat is tightly covered with a plastic tarp, making ingress impossible without a lot of work. Basically, she is difficult to view right now and would show a winterized condition if we managed to find our way onboard.
The plan is for the owner to remove the cover and prep the boat for launching in early April, weather allowing. Spring prep plans include waxing topsides, touching up discolored bottom paint along waterline (there is sufficient bottom paint for another season), and possibly replace a salon sole floorboard which has some water damage. I suspect we could remove the cover for showings around mid-March, assuming the weather forecast was looking more like spring than winter - unlike last year.
The ideal buying process for a buyer would include and on-land survey in late March, followed by launching in April for a sea trial and closing soon thereafter if survey results are satisfactory. If this does not happen, the owner plans to proceed with spring commissioning, launching and docking for normal use and possible showings. At that point the boat should show well and be ready-to-go, however a possible buyer would bear the additional expense of a quick-haul to inspect the bottom.
