40′ Pearson Sloop



Located In: San Carlos, Mexico
Year: 1979
Hull Material: Fiberglass

When the Pearson40 was introduced in 1977 it was loaded with features that broke the Pearson mold. The hull was balsa cored for strength and insulation (she is cool inside when it is hot outside and warm when it is cold outside), with a unique whale-shaped under-body and a deep centerboard. The hull shape was similar to Ted Hood?s center-boarders of the time. This boat only draws 4′ 3″ with the board up. This boat shows very good, click on full spec’s to see all she has to offer
