42 Pearson 424 80 Whiffler

The Pearson 424 ketch is an overly strong built boat with the space to spread out. She is stiff in a breeze and surprisingly quick. Aesthetically, she is graceful from any direction. Her current owner has lovingly taken care of her for over 20 years. With only 45 hours on her new engine she is truly a great bargain. Call to schedule a private showing.
