One thing that can be said about this William H. Shaw design is that the Pearson is one great sailing boat and anyone who has owned one can attest to that. Most use her strictly for cruising, but in her early days she won the three-quarter ton championship as well as Block Island Race Week.  So, she will hold her own in club racing today. The Pearson 30 will probably make you feel like a better sailor than you are. She’s a cinch to steer in any sea condition and has remarkable responsiveness. However you wish to use her – cruise or race, she’ll accommodate family and friends in the comfortable 6’1” cabin.  Her interior is typical with the double forward cabin with storage beneath and shelves on each side.  The private head is just aft with the toilet on the port side with hanging locker behind and the sink basin and locker across.  The main salon has a fold-down bulkhead table and  port & starboard settee berths with storage under both.  To round off sleeping for six, there is a port quarter berth.  The L-shaped galley is to starboard of the companionway.  Move up the stairs to the self-bailing cockpit and you will find wheel steering instead of the standard tiller steering. There’s a sail locker to starboard and lazerette behind the helm. Coaming alcoves are places you can stow winch handles & other things to get to quickly. Quality is high with the one piece hand laid fiberglass hull and one piece deck mechanically attached to each other with a fiberglass overlay. She has a masthead rig sloop, fin keel and inboard spade rudder.  Sails on Otter are in great shape.  Owner is getting out.  It is a fresh water only boat.
