The Pearson 422 : 1983–1987

Pearson 422 Insignia

Looking good is just the beginning of this 42 footer's virtues. She feels good too, solid and sumptuous and exceedingly comfortable.

Luxury Abounds

People with an eye for beautiful lines say that the new Pearson 422 is the most handsomely styled center cockpit cruiser on the market.

But looking good is just the beginning of this 42 footer's virtues. She feels good, too - solid and sumptuous and exceedingly comfortable. Her 270° cockpit is an efficient command station underway, a relaxing gathering place at rest, with folding steps for convenient access from the deck. A thoughtful aft-facing bench - chaise lounge, if you will - is molded into the end of the cabin trunk, a nice spot to escape to. The 422 not only promises privacy - it delivers it.

Below, luxury abounds. Two double-berth staterooms have their own heads and showers. The galley offers features that make other boats in this size range seem spartan by comparison. And the main saloon is a marvel of spaciousness and comfort. There is a full-headroom walkthrough, of course.

Nothing has been overlooked. The well-insulated engine room is large enough for air conditioning and an auxiliary generator. Storage space is copious. The lockers are cedar lined.

Is your dream boat a sloop? A cutter? A ketch? The Pearson 422 is it.
