re: Pearson ensign review

One of the most popular daysailers ever. Nice lines. Very large cockpit for social daysails. Popular one-design and active race fleets (not sure about where you are) so relatively easy to sell if you decide to go bigger. We loved ours. Not speedy by modern standards but a great and fun boat. Highly recommended.

re: Pearson ensign review

I owned a Pearson Ensign and sailed it on Lake Michigan for five (5) years. It was very seaworthy, a wonderful and exciting boat to sail and had beautiful lines. I sailed in comfort and safety with six guests. Very simple to maintain also. I never should have sold her. I bought a Pearson 28-1 (by Bill Shaw). It is also a very nice boat but my heart always go back to my Ensign. I may buy another one when I retire which is within a couple of years.

re: Pearson ensign review

i dont mind fixing it up, i like the big cockpit since on most boats that gets used the most, and having the little cabin to store stuff, maybe a over nighter the odd night,

re: Pearson ensign review

when/if I downsize the ensign is the boat for me. It reminds me of a little, simple, affordable Bermuda 40. I love the large cockpit. I think there are two ways to do this, buy one to fix up and waste a little money or buy one someone has spent a lot of money on. From what I have researched, around 1500 were made but on y-world I only pulled up 2 for sale at the moment.
