If it surveys well and you like its slightly pokey (OK, "cruiser-oriented") sailing characteristics, I don't think 35K is unreasonable, particularly if the engine and exhaust is a lot newer than the 35 year old boat.

There's one I walk by at a friend's club and while I would prefer a Corbin 39 in that sort of "bathtub coaming center cockpit" style, I think it's a fundamentally decent boat of its time and would make a roomy and dry coastal cruiser that you could easily live on.

This one is practically a pilothouse...looks nice!

P-39 Sea Trial and Survey tomorrow

Thanks to you all for the information and thoughts. Especially thanks to SailorMitch for offering to put me in contact with other P-39 owners. Sorry I couldn't private message (apparently because I haven't done enought posts). I may very well come back to you after our sea trial and survey tomorrow if you don't mind.

Yep - we are excited that we have it all arranged for tomorrow morning with a very experienced surveyor. If all goes well we may have found our first cruising boat. Moving up from a San Juan 21. It'll be nice to have a little headroom below!

SailorMitch I can put you in touch with two current owners of that model P-39 if you're interested. Send me a PM if you'd like their email addresses. (It's a great boat btw.)

Probably, except a broker can get you a list of what other Pearson 39's have sold for over the past six months, to give you an idea of whether you are in the right ballpark. A good broker will give you good advice, as well, with the thought that if you don't buy this one you'll buy another.

As to the 39, I don't know it but I do have a colleague with a mid 70s Pearson 36 that is a great boat and sails very nicely to its rating (he likes to race it). I am a big fan of Pearsons, generally, and I had a mid 60s Ensign that is still sailing under different ownership.

jldooley Ok
I am in favor of buying a boat in August- december.
Owners are willing to sell; now becasue of the above post

the owner is offering the boat for sale for what they think its maximum worth.

offer 1/3 of what they are asking. plan on getting rejected then come up to what your comfortable with.

Don't let the broker convince you to increase your offer until its rejected.
Remember the broker is getting a commission on what you offer
brokers are not your friend. remember 10% of your money goes straight into their pocket.

sailingdog If you like it... and you think it is worth it... put in an offer subject to survey and sea trial... and then negotiate... come to an agreement, get a survey and seatrial. BTW, don't forget that if you're buying it now, you're saving the owner the winterizing, haulout and winter storage costs in much of the country... unless you're pretty far south—which is a few boat bucks.

Pearson 39

Anyone have any experience with the Pearson 39. I am looking at a 1975 sloop rig. The boat is in water and appears to be in good condition. PO has upgraded many items of my concern including extra large backing plates on all stantions, complete rewire, barrier and ablative paint but needs repainting, oversized rigging, engine rebuild with 500 hrs, etc. No discerable blisters (diver). $35,000 including good dingy.

Thoughts?
