1983 Pearson 424 Sloop


The Pearson 424 is an aft cockpit cruising vessel but with a surprising bonus, an aft stateroom, giving her not one, but two staterooms! This 424 is a rare find as she is a sloop rig. The cutter rig was an option for which the original owners paid extra. She boasts an enormous cockpit for a boat of her size. Her NEW full Bimini and dodger will protect you from the tropical sun while allowing in the tropical breezes. (Note credit for new Bimini and Dodger to new owners so pick your color!) Lines are led aft to the cockpit for ease of handling. She provides TWO companionway accesses, one from the cockpit and another forward and starboard. The first will take you below with a navigation station to starboard and full-size berth to port. The second takes you to the galley and salon. Her U-Shaped galley allows easy cooking, even underway. The large, comfortable salon yields a perfect space for socializing at anchor, as well as a large capacity for stowage. The forward stateroom holds a V-Berth, bureau of drawers with a vanity, and a surprise hidden head. The 424 hull holds an extended fin keel with a skeg hung rudder. She is a very seaworthy vessel that holds your next adventure and is ready for the change of command. Ranger is seriously for sale and owner says bring all offers.
