Pearson 39-2/Ericson 38-200/Tartan 37


As a Pearson expert, let me correct at least one comment about the 1987-1991 vintage P-39-2. It was made by the original Pearson Yachts, which went out of business in 1991. The Cal-Pearson Company came and went in the late 1990''s, so ignore comments about boats made by that company. As far as I can tell, Cal-Pearson only made a handful of boats anyway, and they were made by Bristol Yachts.

Dan Pfeiffer''s site does include Pearons literature that says the boat was cored on the bottom, which is odd to me. I know the much larger, earlier Pearsons had cored hulls above the waterline, but not below. A current owner of a 39 should be able to set the record straight on that.

I can get you in touch with a couple of owners of P-39-2''s if you''d like, so please email me offline for that info.
