1985 Pearson Trawler

Connecticut

$79,500

 THIS 1985 43’ PEARSON MOTOR YACHT/TRAWLER IS LOCATED IN CONNECTICUT

Very well maintained and ready to go. Boat has just come back on the market (2021).

Close to $30,000 of maintenance improvements have been made to this boat in the past 6-9 months. New heat exchangers, start batteries, alternator rebuilt, both cutless bearings replaced, putting the boat in excellent shape for the next owner.

The Pearson 43 is the perfect boat for comfortable weekend cruising, traveling the ICW or the Great Loop, or just spending weekends on the dock. Looking for a really comfortable live aboard? You won't do much better than this Pearson 43.  The accommodations are very nicely laid out. Roomy galley, larger than most homes/condos, allows for entertaining/cooking in comfort. Up above, the flying bridge is extremely large and would make a great outdoor sunset dining location. The boat was recently repainted traditional white, and with the blue canvas and privacy screen, she looks great. The flybridge has also (2012) had a canvas enclosure installed in 2012 along with a wet bar and refrigerator making for the perfect spot to enjoy the view from above.

Powered by twin 200hp Perkins diesel engines with less than 1300 hours on the engines, she cruises around 10 knots with ease.

It has a new (2016) 7kw Cummins Onan diesel generator with less than 10 hours use. Putting in the 7kw (vs the old 12kw Koehler) reduced weight by a couple hundred pounds and significantly opened up the engine room.

Also new in 2016:

New house bank batteries

New Garmin GPSMAP 5208 on the upper deck.

New Garmin 4' Open Array XD 80 Radar

New Garmin unit on the lower deck

New digital Windex

Accommodations:

She has a large private Master stateroom aft with a queen sized berth and tremendous storage including a chest of drawers and a hanging closet. The master head with a tub/shower, toilet and vanity sink is between the master state room and the salon. The guest stateroom is a large queen sized V-berth with good headroom and excellent storage.

Moving aft from the guest room and below the lower helm is a 2 bed cabin with bunk beds. This is a wonderful place for storage or for additional guests. It would make a great cabin for small children. There is a guest head located forward in the boat that is very convenient to these sleeping quarters.

There are heating and A/C zones for added comfort.

Galley:
The galley in this boat is as big as many Condo or townhouse kitchens. Featuring a full sized (brand new 2012) refrigerator/freezer, overhead microwave oven, 3 burner stove with oven, large sink, coffee maker and ample counter and cabinet space. The refrigerator, microwave, sink and stove run along the starboard side of the cabin while on the port side of the salon is the built-in couch, coffee table and additional chairs. The lower helm station is also located here forward of the galley.

Electrical System:
Complete shore power system with a 50 amp shore connection and cords. With her diesel generator she is capable of providing enough power for all on-board systems. A 12 and 110 volt breaker and switch panel provides power for all on board items.

Deck and Hull Equipment:
There is a large teak swim platform on the stern with a fold out ladder. A small aft deck on the stern is covered from the fiberglass deck above. A ladder leads from the aft deck to the Flying Bridge deck. The flying bridge has a large bimini top providing protection from the sun, and along with the new full enclosure back to the radar arch, you can sit on the flybridge in complete comfort and protection from the elements.

The wide side decks are also covered overhead. There is a door leading directly into the Master Stateroom from the aft deck, and 2 side doors port and starboard at the lower helm station location for easy access and docking from the lower helm.

New fore and aft cabin A/C installed in 2013.
