|The Boat. The new Pearson 27 may be the most
spacious 27 footer youve ever been aboard. Her 226 waterline length and
91" beam allow for an extremely accommodating layout both above and below
decks. The 27 features an enclosed aft stateroom to port and a large enclosed head to
starboard. With over 6 of headroom in the main cabin, you will find the 27 to be
remarkably open and airy for her size.
Our design group rethought the traditional accommodation plan and developed a main cabin to rival many 30 footers by designing one large, open area forward of the companionway.
The galley is amidships with the stove and sink to port and a large ice box covered by a spacious chart table/countertop to starboard. This arrangement, pioneered on earlier models is excellent for smaller boats as it maximizes galley work space and ice box volume.
Forward, the spacious wraparound settee with dining table converts easily into a huge double berth- a full 7 feet long. And there is plenty of storage under the berth.
The Pearson 27 is fast and stiff due to her generous sail plan, long waterline length, and wide beam. Standard on this boat is the innovative shallow draft winged keel which allows the boat to roam freely while offering performance that is tough to distinguish from deeper keel boats.
On deck the 27 features contoured seats and backrests in the cockpit, a house top traveller, self-tailing primary winches, jiffy reefing for the main, and roller furling genoa. All sail controls are located in the cockpit for your convenience and safety.
In summary, I think you will find the Pearson 27 offers the performance and accommodations associated with much large sailboats in one extremely manageable and affordable package. Come Sail With Us.
