1969 Pearson 35 Sloop
The Pearson 35 is a moderate design with a D/L ratio of 229. The deeper-draft fin appears to draw about 3 feet, 8 inches and comes with a deeper, elliptical-tipped rudder. Beam and distribution of beam are moderate, indicating a boat with no performance surprises. The bow overhang is strongly raked, giving the 35 a more graceful appearance than the snubbed-bow IMS types. This will also provide for a drier ride to weather and more useful deck area at the bow.
The interior layout is an evolutionary refinement of previous Pearson models and is aimed at family or two-couple cruising. The aft head features a large shower stall. Note the location of the wet locker just aft of the galley. There is a large double quarter-berth tucked aft of the companionway. The V-berths include a filler piece to form another generous double berth. The chart table is more than adequate. The interior of the 35 is beautifully finished in cherry veneers with solid cherry trim.
This rig is the epitome of the simple masthead sloop rig. The spreaders are slightly swept. This should be a no-brainer rig in terms of mast tuning. You can tune this rig at the beginning of the season and pretty much forget about it for the rest of the year. I'd prefer to see a rigid, mechanical vang, but that's an easy option to add. The mainsheet traveler is over the companionway hatch spray hood, which makes it easy to mount a dodger while keeping the cockpit clear. The SA/D ratio is about 16, indicating a rig that should not require a reef until the wind exceeds 20 knots.
This vessel has been out of the water and indoor stored for the last 4 years. The sellers have bought a trawler. So, they are including a long list of extras with this vessel.
