The Pearson Wanderer 30 was designed by William Shaw who was chief designer for Pearson Yachts, one of Americas largest sailboat manufacturers for more than two decades. This Classic Pearson is a Coastal Cruiser with a roller furling jib (installed in 2004- good shape), loose footed, and fully battened main. Rudder was replaced approximately 10 years ago. New dodger installed in 2020, and older sails on board the boat. This Pearson is equipped with a Yanmar 2GM20F diesel (fresh water cooled) with approximatley 420 hours on it (installed in 2000 with new prop and shaft as well). The boat also includes a VHF, Depth Sounder, Garmin Chart Plotter, and a Danforth Corsair Bulkhead Compass. Brightwork done, decks and hull old but well maintained. Yard is maintained as well. The V berth has a modification, installed a panel and cushion that bridges the space between the berths, but the original layout is still intact. Cushions are approximately 22 years old, but are in decent condition. The boat has been stored and well maintained at Atlantic Boatyard in Brooklin, Maine since 2011.
Equipment: VHF, Depth Sounder, Garmin Chart Plotter, and a Danforth Corsair Bulkhead Compass.
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.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA 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
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.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
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.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
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.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
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.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
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.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
In 1970 (model shown here), a number of minor changes were made to the rig and interior.
