Designed by noted naval architect Bill Tripp, the Pearson Invicta was introduced in 1960. She's yawl-rigged, has a full keel with internal lead ballast, and has a centerboard to enhance performance when close-hauled. With a draft of only 4' 6" with board up, the Invicta can venture where most boats her size are unable. She's ruggedly built and is a fine sailer. Big news in the yachting world in 1964 was Invicta, BURGOO's, first place overall finish in the Newport to Bermuda race. Her deck design is distinctive with a flush deck and "bubble" deck house. The Invicta's interior is spacious and attractive.
PERSISTENCE has had good ownership and has had only three owners. Her engine was replaced in the mid-1980's with a Universal M4-30 diesel engine, and her sails were new in 2008. Her current owners have owned her for 20 years and have given her good care. She's been hauled for the winter and may be easily inspected.
