I am very pleased to offer for sale an outstanding and unique example of
the William Shaw designed Pearson 530 staysail ketch. Built in 1983, these were the largest sailboats Pearson ever built. Their numbers are few and they are coveted by those who desire a high quality, seaworthy, ocean-going sailing craft.
VAGABOND LADY (Hull #27- formerly SEA RETURN and ECLIPSE) is widely known along the eastern seaboard as a truly exceptionally equipped and fastidiously maintained vessel. Her present owner (only her 3rd) has had her since 2013. The 2nd Owner was a graduate of the Maine Maritime Academy and a long time owner and operator of multiple large off-shore commercial ground fishing vessels - this owner was uniquely qualified to bring this Pearson 530 to the high level of sophistication. The current Owner is also very experienced and has continued to upgrade and maintain this Yacht in ready to go condition.VAGABOND LADY has routinely traveled up and down the east coast from Maine to the Caribbean with speed, in great comfort, and in complete safety. This is a serious blue-water sailing and cruising vessel which is deserving of a new owner who appreciates her for the extensive capabilities she holds.
VAGABOND LADY is exhaustively equipped and has received numerous upgrades and improvements over the years. It is nearly impossible to list all of her aspects within this listing. Suffice it to say that I would be very surprised to learn that there is any Pearson 530 that is comparable to this one. This is a new listing and additional information will be added as it is developed. Please feel free to contact me at any time should you have any questions.

The Pearson 530 is elegance without ostentation. She is the consummate performance cruising Yacht.
Designer William H.Shaw (Bill) - quote:
"I can't think of a single good reason why a big, roomy cruising boat with all the comforts of home should sail like a house. Just because that boat has a generator, air conditioning, wet bar, queen size bed, two heads with separate showers, and enough room to play hide 'n seek is no reason at all for the boat to be unresponsive or dull to sail. Sort of like a limousine with sports car handling.
The 530 will appeal to the sailor who loves to see the bow of a powerful boat shoulder aside the sea, while going upwind with a minimum amount of leeway. She will appeal to the sailor who appreciates what an extra few knots mean over a long passage, And, with her double-head rig and it's self tending staysail, she will appeal strongly to the couple who wants a boat this size without the need for crew.
The 530 was meant to be, and is, a true performance cruising Yacht. A gentle, forgiving, easy to handle boat that, quite frankly, fools you. She makes it easy to forget that she weighs over 21 tons!
My guess is that if you've come far enough to be considering a boat like the 530, you know precisely what I am saying. It boils down to this - if you like a boat that sails powerfully, in complete comfort and safety, you will like the Pearson 530."
