Description:
Selling because of health issues
When the P40 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 underbody and a deep centerboard. The hull shape was similar to Ted Hoods center boarders of the time. This boat only draws 4' 3" with the board up.

The deck, however, is the P40s most recognizable feature. It is a racy and sexy flush deck with built in anchor locker and very large deck hatches - a great deck for working on or just laying out in the sun to catch some rays. Not only is the construction top rate, the interior finish is also much better than most Pearson's, with beautiful mahogany bulkheads and oak trim. You will not find mahogany in modern boats today. The P40 is one of those boats that has fallen through the cracks of the used boat market. But this can work to the advantage of the used boat buyer, especially if they are in the market for a lively cruising boat.

Equipment:
Brand new Nanni 38 engine with 0 hours. Lots of high quality rigging including roller furling staysail. Draft with centerboard down is 9.42. Board up is 4.25
