Pearson 30s are well-regarded cruiser-racers, well constructed and seakindly with a decent turn of speed. ! This freshwater Pearson 30 your chance to build YOUR boat YOUR way, affordably!
Hull and deck: She has recently had her hull faired and topsides and deck painted, 2012-2014. Hull and deck both sounded well before purchase, with no springy spots noted. Hull is solid laminate, no core. All deck fittings and winch gear are included in sale, but will require installation and bedding in the spring.
Sails and Rigging: NEW main sail included, along with a full complement of serviceable hank-on foresails. all wire rigging and turnbuckles are in good usable shape. Mast, spreaders, boom and spinnaker pole all present and included in sale.
Auxiliary propulsion and mechanical: Atomic 4 engine installed. The engine turns over with good compression. Fuel tank is clean and in good condition. Comes with Martec folding prop.
Steering: Inboard rudder, tiller steered. The rudder is NEW with NEW rudder post bushings, a common failure area on older Pearsons.
Cabin: Refit needs to be finished. Galley equipment is included, including Origo 2 burner alcohol stove and sink. Head has received NEW toilet and NEW holding tank, so that stinky job is DONE! Bulkheads are solid. Cushions are clean, but worn and due for replacement.
All of the hard work has been done- the painting, the fairing, the head installation. Install the deck hardware, splash, step the mast, bend on the NEW main and hank on a jib and you are sailing! Currentlly, she is an IDEAL beer can racer with the cabin stripped down.
This price is essentially the total of the scrap value of the lead keel, resale value of cradle, engine, main sail, etc.
I don't want to scrap her out- I want another dreamer to have the chance to afford his or her dream.
The boats sale is As-Is, and Where is, it is currently on the hard at an auto/marine mechanic in Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada where there is access to Light & Power included in the monthly storage.
