age of Pearson 33 hull number 116

Hello All,
Does anyone have input on the year of a Pearson 33 with a hull number of 116? The owner thinks that it is from around 1970. If you have a P 33 from that era, please let me know the year produced and the hull number or any help that you are willing to provide.

If you have the full Hull Identification Number (HIN), which is found on the upper right corner of the transom, you should be able to determine the build date. There is a pretty good explanation here

According to they were built from 1970 to 1975

I found a reference in this thread to a 1972 P33 with Hull # 180. It makes me think that 1971 is a reasonable guess.

The Last couple of digits on the HIN are usually the year of manufacture, but I would say that +/- a year on a girl of that age doesn't make much difference. The important issue is her condition. How well she was taken care of is much more important than her age, but the HIN stamped on the transom wasn't required until Nov '72, so you may not find one.

Chris, I ended up with the Pearson 33, Hull 116. I'm over in the Brunswick area. 116 came to me from the Thomaston, ME area.

Did you find anything more about this boat's age? It does not appear to have a HIN. Since HIN's were required after Nov 1972 and these boats were first made in 1970, it seems it has to be either a 1970, 71 or early 72.
