Re: Pearson 36
1975 Pearson Pearson 36 sailboat for sale in New York
The yachtworld boat has an owner installed wheel helm. As you do your research further, you will find that these were tiller boats when new. As this boat is in Washington and you are in New York, do you have a link to the photos of the boat that you’re interested in? Transport costs would add $15k to the $27k purchased price of the boat, making it a little “spendy”. From the “for what it’s worth department, that particular boat was a frequent participant in the Swiftsure Race.
I would prefer a tiller, but this one is wheel. One of the things I like about it is the "newer" Yanmar.
The vintage picture on sailboatdata looks to have the wheel further back, but all the photos I have seen of the actual boats have them forward.

I have not seen any photos of a tiller steered one, wonder how much work it would be to revert back?
