When the P40 was introduced in 1977 it was loaded with features that broke the Pearson mold. The hull was balsa cored for strength and insulation (she is cool inside when it is hot outside and warm when it is cold outside), with a unique whale-shaped underbody and a deep centerboard. The hull shape was similar to Ted Hood’s centerboarders of the time. This boat only draws 4' 3" with the board up.
The deck, however, is the P40’s most recognizable feature. It is a racy and sexy flush deck with built in anchor locker and very large deck hatches - a great deck for working on or just laying out in the sun to catch some rays. Not only is the construction top rate, the interior finish is also much better than most Pearsons, with beautiful mahogany bulkheads and oak trim. You will not find mahogany in modern boats today. The P40 is one of those boats that has fallen through the cracks of the used boat market. But this can work to the advantage of the used boat buyer, especially if they are in the market for a lively cruising boat.
This Pearson 40 Flush Deck has a newer Yanmar diesel engine and ZF gear and has many recent improvements over several years, including the Leisure Furl Boom and new Mainsail.
The following were new in the last four years: lifelines, standing rigging, Koto davits, hydraulic backstay adjuster, stern rail with gate, refrigerator, stove/oven, upholstery, Harken electric winch, roll up inflatable dinghy, 250 ft chain rode, hot water heater, whisker pole, anchor windlass, dodger, bimini and connector. The bottom was epoxy barrier coated in 2000. You must take a closer look at this Pearson 40'. Come and sail Cool Hand away today! She is currently in inside cold storage.
