40' Pearson 40

North Carolina

Description: Pearson 40
Designed by Bill Shaw and built to the highest standards by Pearson Yachts, 'Moonshine' features a shoal draft, displacement hull form with an efficient centerboard that combine to provide excellent upwind performance, comfortable motion in a seaway and tremendous interior volume for a yacht her size. Her draft of four and a half feet with centerboard up allows access to less crowded cruising grounds normally limited to much smaller yachts. Moonshine has benefited by a complete overhaul with a new Beta engine and most other systems replaced, rebuilt or upgraded. Moonshine is well equipped for extended cruising, coastal cruising or racing.
