A couple of things we didn't like about this vintage of Pearsons was the binnacle-fwd-against-the-bridgedeck setup, and the what looked like arborite bulkhead faux woodgrain finish.

She seems to have a fairly heavy IOR 'bustle' and a largish skeg - the latter will help tracking but slow tacking and perhaps adversely affect reversing under power. Cleaned up, though, like SJB said, pretty boat!
I agree the interior is very fake wood covered. I would prefer the real wood, but I don't think it is a deal killer if I like the boat otherwise. the binnacle location is not ideal either, but as I keep coming back to the ad. The boat is very beautiful, and if as good in person as in pictures (rare I know) it might not be a bad boat.
