For sailors who subscribe to the philosophy of free and open content.
Welcome Pearson owners and enthusiasts.
Here you will find information on all models of Pearson Sailboats. Our goal is to preserve and enhance information for those sailing and maintaining classic Pearson boats. The site is regularly updated as new information is discovered.
As many owners websites come and go on the internet, this site serves as a portal for Pearson boat owners. It features a repository of enhanced original documentation from the builder. It integrates robust open source applications to insure privacy and security for users to register their boat information. The content found here is the result of owners contributions and internet research to document information on Pearson boats.
