Drastic Price Reduction June 2016!! Go ahead and dream on… This is the sailboat that countless cruising dreams are made of!  Pearson – very well respected for quality in all aspects of design, construction, and materials, and made in Rhode Island by experienced craftsmen.  For you!

There is of course quite a difference between marina queens barely equipped for going near, and proven voyagers capable of going far.  Countless improvements and maintenance over the years, and especially so recently, have put this cruising boat in fine condition for go-anywhere sailing.

This cutter has sailed offshore and inshore but never ashore – so now let’s get serious about the facts:  Take a long look at the Full Specifications of this Pearson and consider the real value this cruise worthy sailboat represents!

A truly extensive refit in 2013 included NEW:  Harken roller furling, battery charger, solar panel & controller, 4-person life raft, running lights, dinghy davits, full screen enclosure for cockpit, folding mast steps were refastened and the mast and boom painted, masthead Windex, all portlights and handrails were rebedded, Adler-Barbour refrigeration, three fire extinguishers, fuel injection pump and four injectors for the Perkins, Bowman heat exchanger core, 120-amp alternator & Balmar smart regulator --- and on and on, new!

So here is your ideal cruising sailboat, already conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean!  Now safely tucked up the Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane season, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world – Belize it!  Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja).  Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!

Whatever good fortune has led you to this advertisement, carry on with it!  Consider the information, communicate questions, perhaps validate your interest with an independent low-cost photo survey or a pre-purchase survey, and then clear your schedule and make travel arrangements.  You could be living your dreams in the next few weeks!  And, you SHOULD be living your dreams, right?!

Proceed with the peace of mind fostered by a brokerage reputation built on professionalism and integrity.  SYS Brokerage only accepts yacht listings with realistic or bargain prices, listings that our brokers can represent truthfully as being worthwhile.
