The Pearson 30' is a good sailor. We regularly race against one in our PHRF division. They are the boat for us to beat - almost never happens though.
Regarding your Universal diesel, I would guess that it has been repowered by a PO along the way. Our friends P30' still has the original Atomic 4 gas engine in their boat. You are lucky you don't have the Farymann diesel noted by hobbits, back in July. Farymann diesels are not so highly regarded and getting replacement parts for them is tough. You can get plenty of parts for a Universal diesel should you need to.
