This spacious, well-built coastal cruiser is an affordable way to enter the big boat world!
High off the water, it looks safe and capable of keeping its passengers dry. The small, deep cockpit with its bridgedeck exudes an air of oceangoing security, while the mast, stepped to the keel, suggests overall strength. Spaciousness is the key word when describing this yacht's interior. The 10-foot beam allows sleeping quarters for five, a small galley, comfortable dining area, and adequate privacy. The galley to port is near the companionway and typically features a two-burner alcohol stove, single-basin stainless steel sink, modest countertop space and a 5-cubic-foot insulated, top-loading icebox. Settees to port and starboard in the teak-paneled saloon provide seating for meals at the drop-down table with a folding leaf.
Exterior/wood/cosmetic finishing's including head mirror, etc. need some TLC and detailing.
Solidly built, affordably priced and easy to sail, with voluminous space belowdecks, this Pearson 303 is an ideal coastal cruising boat for a small family or a big-boat sailor looking to downsize.
