The Pearson 53 is a solid offshore cruiser. And with her unique keel/centerboard configuration, she has the ability to visit secluded harbors along the way. This 53 is the three stateroom two head layout. She comes well equipped with many spares as she currently lives in the Grenadines. The current owners have done some selective chartering and those records and files can be available to the next owners.

The engine has just been rebuilt, and the generator has a new (rebuilt) engine. The furling Main is a recent add-on and complements the rest of the inventory including a spinnaker, two staysails and a mizzen.

SKIPPING STONE is US documented and all paperwork is current and up to date.

Vessel Walkthrough

The main salon has a traditional Nav Station on port. There was a settee on port leading to the companionway and the two forward staterooms. In the bow is a V-Berth with filler to make an ample double berth. Just aft is the guest stateroom with over/under single berths.

Back in the Salon…on starboard is a huge dining table with ample seating for six on an L-Shaped settee. Continuing aft, you enter the starboard side galley featuring 110V Refrigeration, Seafrost, new-ish compressor, copper lines, RFD, expansion valves, and insulation and fiberglass bottom added to boxes.

The 530 Pearson features mid ship cockpit with all controls leading to the cockpit…and is laid out with wide side decks. Weather protection is afforded through a dodger and matching bimini.

Main Salon:

The spacious, sunny, main salon has a minimum of 6'4" headroom, and is lit by seven ports and two large overhead hatches. The interior is all wood and every bit of it is built by hand, the woods carefully chosen for the beauty of their grain.
