"The Pearson 35 was one of our most successful. It was in production for 14 years, which was quite a record. We never approached that again. Most designs would last five years or so."

-- Bill Shaw, Pearson Yachts 

The Pearson 35 enjoyed extraordinary success with a build run from 1968 through 1981. Over 500 Pearson 35's were constructed, most still in use. Substantially built, they offered a huge cockpit (9' 5" long!), a forward cabin large enough and with enough headroom to actually get dressed. The main cabin is bright, airy, and comfortable. The Pearson 35 has a long full keel with centerboard which provides shoal draft, making it possible to venture into places much smaller boats would hesitate going. Demand for the Pearson 35 continues with an active and competitive resale market for well-maintained vessels. 

CAVU is hull #506 of 515 built. She's in excellent cosmetic and structural shape and is truly a fine example, one of the better ones.  Her owner points out:

  •   Very good original condition 
  •   Rebuilt Universal diesel
  •   New fuel tank
  •   New transmission, shaft and cutlass bearing
  •   Doyle StackPack with lazy jacks and TidesTrack slide system
  •   Doyle 120 on Schaefer furler
  •   Garmin GPS Map 740, VHF 200 and GMI depth display all on NMEA bus
  •   New toilet and hoses to 35 gal holding tank
  •   New standing rigging (shrouds and backstage)
  •   New lifelines
  •   Rebuilt cockpit sole and Edson steering
  •   New centerboard cable
  •   New dodger and fly
  •   New anchor gear
  •   Fairclough custom winter cover with frame

Under her current owner's care, she's benefitted from a rigorous maintenance program and a number of upgrades, including a new 120% genoa (the other sails were new in 2012), a rebuilt engine, new transmission (still under warranty), replacement of most standing rigging, new custom canvas Fairclough winter cover with metal frame, new dodger and cockpit awning, new head plumbing, custom folding dining table and bookshelves, and LED spreader and interior lights.

CAVU completed a cruise last summer extending from Massachusetts to the Chesapeake, exploring the Hudson River and NY canal system along the way.  She's now on the hard in Marion, MA still under her winter cover so can be easily viewed.
