The Pearson 37-2 : 1988–1991

Pearson 37

Think of the Pearson 37 as a second home on the water that also sails very well.


Welcome aboard the Pearson 37, a sailboat that represents a whole new level of comfort and cruising performance. Here is a boat that is a total delight to sail with a group of friends or with just two people, thanks to her fully-battened mainsail, self-tacking roller furling jib, and cockpit-led sail controls. But one look at the interior tells you this is not even half the story.

The Pearson 37 is one sailboat you will honestly enjoy living aboard. Plush carpeting, swivel chairs, a full island berth, bright warm colors, good lighting, and an array of modern conveniences are just a few of the features that make this boat so inviting. Think of the Pearson 37 as a second home on the water that also sails very well.

the Boat

For many of today’s sailors traditions of the past are not important. They want the same amenities on their boats that make their cars and their homes more comfortable and fun to use. They also want quality and the same modern conveniences they’re accustomed to at home without sacrificing practicality in the form of low maintenance and overall value.
Up until now only the boat segment of the marine industry has seriously addressed these requirements by incorporating in their designs the professionally decorated interiors, custom styling, comfortable seating and sleeping accommodations, modern appliances, and state-of-the-art audio and video systems.
We set out to create a top-quality sailboat that encompassed these basic attributes while still retaining the ability to perform well under sail.
The result is the new Pearson 37. And the execution, I’m proud to say, has exceeded expectations. Convenience, style and comfort show up virtually everywhere on the Pearson 37. The deck layout and rig are designed for cruising short-handed in a wide range of wind conditions. The roller furling Solent jib is self-tacking. The mainsail is fully battened and includes lazy jacks for easy furling. A walk-through transom and swing-down swim ladder make water access a snap. The innovative shallow draft wing keel opens up shoal and open water cruising. And Pearson’s exclusive Blister-Bloc® gelcoat below the waterline affords peace of mind against bottom blistering.
The real departure is below decks where we have completely revamped the comfort factor. You will find wall-to-wall carpeting, swivel armchairs that are a joy to sit in, a settee that is more like an overstuffed couch, plus an entertainment center with a multi-speaker stereo, color TV, and video cassette player. The specifically designed hi-low table can be used for dining or cocktails. The futuristic navigation station is engineered to accommodate the latest in marine electronics.
The forward stateroom features a walk-around double berth that is easy to get in and out of and can be left made-up. The spacious galley includes an electric range, microwave oven, and refrigeration. The oversized head aft features a full stall shower and an electric toilet. A 4KW generator comes standard to supply all the electricity needed when shore power is not available. Reverse cycle air conditioning can be ordered as an option.
For the boating enthusiast looking for a whole new level of comfort and ease of handling in a quality sailing yacht, the Pearson 37 is the perfect choice. Here at last is a sailboat that provides all the conveniences of your everyday lifestyle in a floating second home.
