Seller's Description

PRICE REDUCED! Perfect Lake/Bay boat. Extensive upgrades. This 1988 Pearson P-27 sailboat is hull 134 of 239 built. The P-27 II has one of the largest interiors of any 27ft boat. It has a 12-hp Universal M-12 diesel with under 200 hours since the last overhaul. All running rigging is run to the cockpit for single-handing ease. It has a shoal draft wing keel drawing 3’6” that is wonderful for exploring Chesapeake and intercostal waters. Updates include a 2000W Victron Energy inverter/charger with a Battleborn 300Ah lithium house bank. Two GCFI A/C outlets for head and galley appliances. Galley has a sink and an alcohol stove. 8000 BTU A/C installed by Horton Marine Services of Annapolis cools or heats all cabins. Vaccuflush toilet and recently replaced fresh water pump (does not smell like other boats that have raw water heads). The Navy blue dodger offers sun and spray protection. A B&G NMEA 2000 Vulcan 7 MFD is used for instrumentation and navigation. Entertainment includes a pivoting screen and a dual-zone fusion satellite radio with aux-in. Two large berths with recently updated cushions make this Pearson 27-2 the perfect entry-level pocket cruiser for couples or small families.

Calculations

Hull Speed
7.3 kn
Classic: 6.36 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

7.25 knots
Classic formula: 6.36 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
16.5
16-20: good performance

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.
16.45
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
37.5
<40: less stiff, less 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

37.51
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
227.1
200-275: moderate

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
227.13
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
19.5
<20: lightweight racing 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
19.47
<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
2.1
>2.0: better suited for coastal cruising

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
2.05
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
