Seller's Description

Classic World sailer, This Pearson 40 is all the boat you need for any voyage.

This particular boat comes with a centerboard keel which allows you to get into any shallow spot you want. Only 4’ 3” is needed to move this boat.

Another feature of this boat is the solid rigging, for more reliability and easy service. Also, this boat comes with an extra pole for an extra sail if you want.

Currently this Pearson has solar panels and a 1,000w inverter to power the cabin while on the way. Also, there is a digital autohelm unit as well as windvane for keeping your heading while on a long trip.

At the cockpit, a full bimini and dodger provide lots of protection from the elements. All of the electronics are in the line of sight and you could operate all your lines from back here, as well as the centerboard.

The cabin is one of the most comfortable layouts you’ll ever meet. A couple of steps down on the starboard side, you have your galley with a double sink, stove, microwave, oven, and refrigerator with ice box. Across, on the port side, you have your nav station and a single berth. A big bench and desk to work comfortably from here. All of your breakers are in this area too.

Midship, you have a big dinette area. It comes with a fold-down table, and 2 large benches on each side with lots of storage all around. Next, your enclosed head with shower. Plenty of room to operate here. The head is manual, so it is easy to maintain, and won’t use up your freshwater tank. Plenty of storage in this head.

At the bow, your main bedroom, a V-berth with lots of storage all around. There is also plenty of closet space in this bedroom. The big hatch provides lots of natural light here.

Overall a great boat for a long trip, or live-aboard.

Calculations

Hull Speed
7.6 kn
Classic: 7.49 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Formula

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

7.59 knots
Classic formula: 7.49 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
16.0
<16: under powered

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

Formula

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
15.98
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
53.5
>40: stiffer, more powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Formula

Ballast / Displacement * 100

53.51
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
333.0
275-350: heavy

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

Formula

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
333.01
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
35.7
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Formula

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
35.74
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
1.8
<2.0: better suited for ocean passages

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

Formula

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
1.76
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
