Glad to know you''re hanging in there after all these posts.
Answers to your questions: For anything related to Pearson Yachts, THE definitive website is one put together by a fellow named Dan Pfeiffer. The address is www.pearsoninfo.net. Click on the 31-2 link in the line up and you''ll see more photos of the boat.
As for problems with Pearsons made in the years leading up to 1991 when Pearson went belly up, I don''t think that''s an issue. In fact, the 31-2 pictured in the above website belongs to a fellow named Bill Crane, who says his 31-2 was the last boat out of the factory before they closed the doors. I''ve owned a P-27 since new in 1989, and also now own a 1988 P-33-2 and have had no problems I''d relate to any financial problems Pearson may have been having. Also, remember that these boats are now at least a dozen years old and are still going strong. As a general rule, the boats are holding up very well.
As for looks, obviously I like the distinctive look Bill Shaw dsigned in the mid-1980''s and used throughout the line. They are handsome boats in my book. And just today at my marina three different people told me how pretty my 33-2 is. So others share my opinion.
And we know what they say about opinions........
I don''t think you can beat the quality/price ratio of a Pearson, but that''s just me. It''s your money, so buy what makes you happy. that''s what it''s all about.
