Pearson 26 conundrum

OK... I've been corresponding with someone regarding the Pearson 26 interior I linked to in the other thread, and he asserts that it's a completely stock Pearson 26 boat from 1986. Pearson stopped making the 26 in '82, and the One Design in '83, by all accounts I've seen in my research (Dan Pfeiffer's page, Sailboatdata, Good Old Boat, blah blah).

Here's three pics... What the heck IS this boat?!?!

Re: Pearson 26 conundrum

What does your Title say it is?? Could be a Pearson 26.

Re: Pearson 26 conundrum

Doesn't look like a Pearson 26 (either version). House profile and windows are completely different.

I own a 1972 Pearson 26; that's not the boat in question. While looking around to see how other P26 owners may have customized their cabins for longer term cruising for just two people, I came across the previously attached pics. I emailed the owner, asking about the modifications, and he told me it was a totally stock 1986 P26. To my knowledge, there's no such thing; the P26 ended in 1982, and the OD version continued for one more year. Baffling.

Okay .... so I'm not going nuts. The windows, the profile, the hatch...nothing looks right. I know Everett Pearson was still using the company name in some form when they reconfigured in 1991, and that there was a brief alliance between Pearson and Cal after Grumman sold off the Pearson line (in 1986?), but I'm almost positive that 1982 was the last year of a Bill Shaw P26. Sooooo....what IS this boat?

Re: Pearson 26 conundrum

That is a Pearson 27 also called a Triton 27. It was a design that started life as a Bayliner (as in Buccaneer) and then became a US Yachts 27. Pearson bought the tooling and built them as Triton 27's and later spun off a division they called Triton yachts that produced this and other Buccaneer designs.

Thanks, Jeff! That isn't quite right, either; after looking at them, the Pearson/Triton 27' had a keel stepped mast, the usual square front hatch, the galley more forward rather than by the companionway, and different windows. The boat in question is deck stepped. HOWEVER, you got me headed in the right direction. It's a Pearson/Triton 25, most likely 1985 or so. Here's a listing for one, and I'm pretty sure it's the same boat..

Again, thanks for the help. I can sleep again.
