1982 Pearson 35 Asking $29,900 SOLD!! Contact Us

  • Offered By

Bill Shaw designed the Pearson 35. He said it was one of his most successful designs. The 35 was in production for 14 years from 1968 to 1981, for the 1982 model year. Most designs would last only five years.

Over 500 Pearson 35’s were constructed, most are still in use. Substantially built, they offered a huge cockpit (9′ 5″ long!), a forward cabin large enough and with enough headroom to actually get dressed. The main cabin is bright, airy, and comfortable.

The Pearson 35 has a long full keel with centerboard which provides shoal draft, making it possible to venture into places much smaller boats would hesitate going. Demand for the Pearson 35 continues with an active and competitive resale market for well-maintained vessels. 

Buttercup is very well maintained and upgraded. Every nook and cranny is spotless.

The Universal engine has approximately 2517 hours.

The 12000 BTU marine AC is 1 year old.
