CHEAP LOOKING?




You may consider it cheap looking but as other P27 owners have said before "It can take more than you can." We have been very happy with our P27 so far.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You won't like...

You won't like a flag blue hull once you own one! Been there, done that, NEVER again! It shows everything and is a real bitch to keep looking good. I just painted my boat blue but I went with one of the custom AwlGrip colors called Stars & Stripes blue not the darker Flag Blue. S&S blue is very easy to keep clean and looking good compared to flag blue. Just my .02!

It surprised us as well. We didn't like the open design at first but then we saw the P27 and that changed. The inside feels bigger than a 27 foot boat. The aft cabin is respectable too. We like the idea of a dark blue hull as well but our current paint looks fine so we'll go with white for now. I like the idea of being more visible in the water so dark blue kinda kills that for me. Now Red... then you've got my attention.

Just be aware that a red or dark colored deck can lead to the cabin top being hot enough to be uncomfortable to walk on... and can cause the cabin to heat up more in the summer.

I love my P27 and the open design is great for making the boat feal like a lot bigger inside.

I'm going to guess what he really meant was more "plain-looking." Pearsons, most of them, anyway, tend to cleaner, more straight-forward lines, and less adornment than many other boats, particularly in the interior. Our P30 is like that. (Esp. since the PO swapped-out the original teak handrails for shorter, stainless ones.) We love the clean lines of our boat. It's one thing I've always liked about Pearson designs.

Another characteristic Pearson is well-known for: Seemingly able to create more cabin space than other boats of the same size.

Port side is new and starboard is original. It got some dock rash from the PO that got repaired and painted. They feathered the bow and left the transom original too. It looks about the same on both sides though.
