Cruisers 1986 Pearson 33

Off Market since Nov 24th 2022

To see full description of this boat from the seller click on the Seller Description tab above.

This 1986 Pearson 33 has 2 private staterooms plus a convertible dinette that can accommodate 2 more. Her fixed keel with centerboard makes her an ideal Chesapeake Bay boat or anywhere for that matter. She has had a number of upgrades thru the years, including a Vinylester Barrier coat on her bottom, new life lines and her roller furling was upgraded to a Harken system when the owner first bought her. She would make a great starter boat or family cruiser. She also has the ability to be a nice club racer as well, which the present owner did in the early years.

She is located in Solomons, Md. Please contact Laird Larrimore, the listing broker, to make an appointment.



It is pleasantly surprising at how much space there is in this 33 footer. As you enter the cabin, to starboard and tucked under part of the cockpit, is the aft cabin. There is a nice large berth, standup room in front of the berth along with a hanging locker. There is also additional engine access. As you go forward and on starboard is the L-shaped galley. Opposite the galley to port is a wet locker and large Navigation station. Under the Nav table is a large Ice Box. Aft of the wet locker is a nice size head compartment.

Her main salon consists of a straight settee to port and an L-shaped dinette to starboard with table and drop leaves. This dinette converts to make an additional double berth. There is shelving outboard of both the settee and dinette for additional storage. Forward of the salon is the second private stateroom. The forward stateroom consists of a V-berth with filler, hanging locker to starboard, storage to port, as well as under the berth and overhead hatch for nice ventilation.

Her interior is warm and inviting with navy colored cushions through out and plenty of teak cabinetry. There are 8 opening ports and 3 hatches for abundant light and fresh air.


Her galley is nicely equipped and has plenty of counter and cabinet space for cook ware and preparing meals.
