1966 Pearson Vanguard located in California for sale

33' Pearson Vanguard


Description: For sale is our 1966 Pearson Vanguard, Volunteer. This boat is a proven traveler having been up and down the eastern seaboard and through the Panama Canal. The Vanguard is a solid, heavy boat, great for the windy Bay or the open ocean. At least 2 Vanguards have completed a circumnavigation (this one hasn't, yet). We've had the boat since 2015 and take her out almost every weekend.

This Vanguard has a unique custom teak interior built by the previous owner. I didn't know him but he was clearly a skilled carpenter. You will not find another Vanguard with interior trim this nicely done. Most came with an imitation blond oak veneer.

The Volunteer is in great shape for her age but is indeed a 50 year old boat. There is a some general wear and tear I will try to list here. Electrical works, but is in need of upgrade. The sink pumps will need to be replaced or rebuilt to get water flowing to the sink. The diesel tank should be cleaned and reconnected to the engine. I have been running off of an auxiliary tank. There is a rain leak around the starboard aft galley window.
