Seller's Description

“Best value in a serious cruiser” More and more we find todays sailors looking for comfortable cruising boats that sail really well, yet are easy to handle with only family or friends aboard. The Pearson 39 is just this kind of boat, a contemporary performance oriented cruiser that delivers superb handling under both sail and power. Several innovations have contributed to this. The rig is simpler. Thus its possible to reef both the main and jib with a small crew, without leaving the cockpit. Big, self tailing winches, a cabintop traveller, 44” elkhide covered wheel, contoured cockpit seating all help maintain full-time crew comfort. All too often the words used to describe a boats characteristics get overworked. But, believe me, it youve experienced wide turning circles, the inability to track, surprises when backing down, a mushy response to a new, fresh breeze, or a low response to you touch on the wheel, youll know what I mean when I say the 39 handles like an extension of your thoughts. Stepping belowdecks, youll have little choice but to be impressed by the warm rich wood with its cabinetmaker-quality joinerworker and hand-rubbed varnish finish. You will also find the finest in fabrics and design appointments. Classically elegant. Drawing on the popularity of our other designs, we have produced an honest two-stateroom boat that is as comfortable for guests as it is for the owners. The galley is a chefs delight. Spacious yet efficient, with ample counter space and everything within easy reach. To summarize, the Pearson 39 is the result of years of experience coupled with the latest thinking in yacht design. With its hull configuration, space utilization, creature comforts and convenience, the Pearson 39 delivers superb performance and unmatched elegance.

Seor Moment is the 39-2 model, featuring a two-stateroom layout that is as comfortable for guests as it is for the owners, sleeping up to 7 people.

Calculations

Hull Speed
8.3 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

8.34 knots
Classic formula: 7.49 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
18.1
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.
18.1
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
Ballast/Displacement
40.5
>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

40.47
<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
Displacement/Length
245.4
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
245.36
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
26.7
20-30: coastal cruiser

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
26.68
<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
1.94
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
