Re: pearson

I my guess is in NADA, the SL refers to Sloop.

The 28 I think only came in the 28-2 version. Price is always dependent on condition.

Re: pearson

Seems unlikely that the -2 would be the only model - usually that would imply there was a -1 that preceded it.

Re: pearson

There were two Pearson 28s. First was 1980-82, and the 28-2 was 1985-89.

Re: pearson

The Original Pearson 28 was 1975-1980, the 1980 version had a slightly longer waterline than the original and then they name the third iteration the 28-2 ??? Marketing I suppose. I wish I would have gotten the original 28 instead of the 26OD another marketing itteration. With a PHRF of 216 I would hardly call it a One Design but it was a good sailing little boat that was easily sailed to that rating although I never understood why it owed a standard Catalina 27 9 sec. a mile.

Re: pearson

As others have stated, Pearson made several 28' foot boats. You can usually tell which one it is by the year, if the model is not specified. I'm very fond of my Pearson 28-2, which has a very different cabin layout than the 28-1. There is a full-keel and a shoal keel version.

Price depends on age, condition, and location. Most Pearson 28-2s in decent shape will be priced between $17,000-$25,000 on the east coast. Older Pearson models will generally be cheaper.

You can look up the boat on the web to find the keel type. Pearson quit with full keels in the early 70's so it's almost certainly a fin of some type.

You can buy plotters with depth for under $1K now and used electronics have little value so don't let that colour your decision.
