Here you will find extensive information on boats built by Pearson Yachts Corporation, which is no longer in business.
Our goal is to preserve and enhance information for those sailing and maintaining classic plastic Pearson boats. The site is regularly updated as new information is discovered.
As many boat owners websites come and go on the internet, this site serves as a resilient 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.
As a Web Portal [website] this is an intentional design that brings information together from diverse sources in a uniform way.
