Seller's Description

Located in Indiantown, Florida is this 1982 Pearson 424 Cutter Sailboat.

The Pearson 42 is a production built fiberglass cruising sailboat built by Pearson Yachts in Rhode Island. This model Pearson was in production from 1978 until 1984 and about 225 of them were built.

The boat is cutter rigged, has a conventional trunk cabin and an aft cockpit. The rudder is skeg hung and it has a fin keel. The boat is beamy, of moderate draft, and has 7,600 pounds of encapsulated ballast.

Two Sea Anchors with a Windlass keep this boat stable when at anchor. Great Lewmar winches make easy work with sail management.

This Cutter comes with a pedestal helm and has a full array of electronics to guide you to your favorite spot or help find you a new one.

The engine is a 54 HP Westerbeke M71 Diesel that the seller just recently had installed that was purchased with 2000 hours on it.

Below are a bath and a half and sleeping for 8. The main head sports a full stand-up shower with vanity with sink.

Chest style refrigerator and freezer, Gas stove with oven, stainless steel sink allow you to prepare food while aboard.

Calculations

Hull Speed
8.5 kn
Classic: 7.77 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

8.53 knots
Classic formula: 7.77 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
14.8
<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.
14.84
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
34.5
<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

34.54
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
257.5
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
257.5
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
30.6
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
30.59
<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
1.9
<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
1.85
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising

Notes

The Pearson 424 (aft cockpit) and 422 (center cockpit) share the same hull and evolved from the 390 and 419. In addition to being one of the builders most successful models, it is highly thought of among serious blue water cruisers.
Available as a cutter or ketch with at least 2 different layouts.
Reverse mounted engine with Walter V-drive.
