43 Pearson Motor Yacht

Hey folks. My wife Sonnie and I want to introduce ourselves. We liveaboard at Jordan Point Yacht Haven in Hopewell Va. Are there any Pearson Motor Yacht owners out there?

Re: 43 Pearson Motor Yacht

Hi FF and Sonnie and welcome to the forum.

I have a Pearson and it has a motor. Does that count or does the mast disqualify me?

Actually I had forgotten that Pearson made motorboats. Is it a 43'? Have to say that overall I'm very happy with my 42' sailboat and think it's a very good value for the money.

Re: 43 Pearson Motor Yacht

Hey skipmac. Nice to meet ya. Yes, it's a 1985 Pearson Motor Yacht with twin 200 hp turbo Perkins diesels. I am a sailor also. Pearson makes such a great boat, I feel fortunate to have been able to end up with her. I believe I have the very last one made. 11/11 in 1985. It is a great liveaboard. The add is still on yacht world. It was the one in Yorktown Va. My bud has a 35 pearson, 1965 Alberg. Handles great, points high, responsive with just enough weather helm. A joy to play with. If you get to Hopewell, look us up
