Detail description of all work and updates since 2000 from previous owner: svsarah.com
The needs improvement: Sail covers and dodger are functional but could be replaced. Needs bottom job. Jib is a composite sail and not it great shape but still very usuable. Interior cushions still plenty functional but could use a refresh. Generator hasnt been ran since 2015 Air conditioning needs to be replaced Running rigging is worn and dirty
Sarah is a very solid well equipped example of a 424. She still needs some attention but really just add ons and custom features to make her all your own. Priced accordingly for the needed items to make it your that. $65,000 obo
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)
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.
