The Pearson 300 : 1969–1970

Pearson 300 Insignia

Power to Spare.

A Pilothouse Variation

The Pearson 300 was absolutely a variation on the Wanderer hull, without the centerboard, and with a relatively large pilothouse. The first reference I find for the 300 is in SAIL magazine's Sailboat Directory/1969, which probably appeared in late 1968.

SAIL Magazine: "Pearson Yacht's latest entry in the auxiliary market, the Pearson 300 features power to spare, a commodious accommodation plan, private forward cabin, large toilet room and an elevated dinette for picture window visibility. Her rig has been brought completely inboard to enable two people to handle her comfortably. The 300 is ideal for offshore cruising or for those leaving powerboating in favor of sail."
