Description: Zinful Pleasures is a well-maintained Bay and Coastal cruising boat. If you are new to sailing and especially if you have a small family this is an EXCELLENT beginner boat, because it's roomy, stable and easy to sail. This is the perfect time of year to buy this kind of boat, because by the time opening day arrives, youll be ready to go sailing!

Pearsons are very well-made boats with the performance and stability of a comparable Hunter and a lot more room than a comparable Ranger. They are very similar in build quality to an Ericson, arguably a little better than a Catalina. They were built on the east coast and were very popular there and in the Great Lakes.

This is the cruising version of the 26, with the larger cabin and standing headroom. (Well, if you are 5'6" or less) It has the dinette layout, which converts to a double bed. Altogether there is room to sleep 5 in the boat. (Although you better be very friendly.)

Notice that the companionway is very low its super easy to navigate in and out; no steep ladder to climb!

Finally, Zinful Pleasures is berthed in Alameda in a transferrable slip. (Youll have to qualify of course.) The Alameda estuary is a perfect place for beginners to get their sailing chops in because its protected and interesting, and just a 40-mintue sail into the main part of the bay for some rough and tumble fun. 

It does need a few things:
The bottom hasnt been done for at least two years. I have it cleaned regularly, but its time for a haul-out.
The topsides (sides of the boat between the water and the gunwale for you land-lubbers) paint is chipping here and there. This could be touched up when you have it out of the water.
The masthead fitting needs lubrication at least, and maybe replacement.
The jib is tired, but serviceable and it trims just fine.

Upgrades and recent improvements:
It has a four-stroke 9.8 Tohatsu outboard. (Tohatsu makes most of the other brands, like Mercury and Honda.) This engine might be just a little larger than you need on this boat, but its nice to have the extra powe

Equipment: 9.8 HP Tohatsu 4-stroke outboard
Anchor, life jackets, etc.
