The Pearson 422 is the last of a series of four variations (390, 419, 424, 422) on a same basic Bill Shaw hull design. With her center cockpit and centerline queen aft, she is the most prized. Pearson produced 39 hulls from 1982 to 1986. Years ago we sold a 422 which attracted unforgettable interest. A broker in-house says, “If only we could clone that boat. The number of showings, the calls were unbelievably. I’ve never seen anything like it.” The 422 is one sought after design. In 1959, the Pearson cousins, Everett and Clinton, introduced the first mass produced fiberglass sailboat, the Triton 28. It was a hit, and Pearson Yachts quickly expanded. In 1961, Grumman bought the company and funded ever increasing production. They introduced a flurry of classic designs like the 35 Alberg and 44 Countess. By 1966, corporate politics forced out both the cousins. Bill Shaw took over. In the late 1960’s, he finished up the cousins’ designs and planned for his own. Then, Shaw started reshaping Pearson in his vision.
