This Pearson 39 was donated to The Carpenter's Boat Shop, a non profit organization that takes in apprentices and builds beautiful wooden boats. They wish to sell it. The yacht is in excellent condition and considerably better than average for her age. Before being donated, she was maintained by local yards (Bitter Sweet Landing 7 years, Boothbay Region before that) and has been in the Pemaquid area for many years. After the donation, she was winterized and shrink wrapped, and has been stored on the Boat Shop's property since. The owner occasionally took paying guests, so the boat was documented and had to pass the extra insurance requirements to do this. Topsides and teak toe rails (an indicator of how hard a boat has been used) are excellent. No gouges from anchor chains etc.. There is an area on the std quarter, well above the waterline, that has small blisters caused by the over enthusiastic use of a torch when last shrink wrapped. The yard has advised not to fix, as the blisters are hard and not a problem. They are only visible close up. The original engine was replaced with a Westerbeke 30B Three diesel in 1990. The V drive has also been rebuilt. Electronics include Autohelm, Raymarine C70 display, chart plotter, radar, hand held VHF and handheld GPS. Sails: 'new' main (circa 2000), old main, 140% roller furling genoa, spinnaker, storm jib. Dodger. 2 cockpit cushions. 9 interior cushions (blue). Hardware: spinnaker pole with fittings for storing on deck, self tailing winches and roller bearing blocks, Harken roller furling system with twin groove foil, mast head navigation lights, anchor ground tackle, EPIRB (needs renewal), Inflatable dinghy in good condition. Her shoal draft, centerboard design is ideal for Maine. The operation of the board and the state of the cable are OK, per the boat yard. This yacht is in exceptional condition for its year, inside and out. The asking price was recently reduced from $25,000 to $22,000. Reasonable offers will be considered. (The boat was listed by a broker for $45,000 just three years ago). I am not at the Boat Shop (though I am a board member), but have agreed to help with the sale and would be happy to drive there to meet any serious prospective buyers. The yacht contains all the extra equipment she had when she was last sailing, including charts, reference books on Maine, even cleaning supplies! All information is believed to be correct but yacht is sold as is. This 39' Pearson, in such good condition, with all its equipment, represents amazing value. The last picture of the traditional rowing boat is not part of the equipment but is an example of what the apprentices create at the non-profit organization you would be supporting! All pictures taken May 2018 (except the two in the water).
