When Bill Shaw conceived the Pearson 35, his intent was to build
something special. A yacht that would combine superb handling, great
accommodations, and an underwater configuration that offered safe
and comfortable cruising in both shoal and deep waters. Since the
first Pearson 35 was launched in 1968, she has lived up to these
expectations. Immediately pleasing to the eye, the P35 offers lots
of teak trim on deck and a teak "package" below to add additional
warmth to her roomy interior. Cruise aboard the 35 where you please.
With board up she draws only 3' 9" of water. But getting there is
only half the fun. Her roomy 9' 5" cockpit with well-placed pedestal
steering offers great visibility and a wealth of storage space in
lockers port and starboard and lazarette aft. Coaming caps and
toerails are teak and her wide walkways and foredeck have non-skid
surfaces for sure footing in any sea condition. She's earned the
respect of all those who have a special fondness for a responsive,
balanced cruising yacht with attractive lines and pleasurable
appointments. But there's more belowdecks!
Down the companionway, the galley is open, light, well
ventilated, and provides plenty of storage. The galley is
immediately at the bottom of the ladderway and is U-shaped. To port
is a gimbaled stove with oven with shelves and food lockers located
above, and a midships sink with drawer stowage under. On the
starboard side of the galley is a top-loading icebox with additional
food and utensil stowage outboard. The enclosed head and shower
are located conveniently to port, forward of the dinette bulkhead.
Berths for five are provided in the V-Berth (2), Port Settee (2),
and Starboard Settee (1). The main cabin warmly greets you with teak
bulkheads and teak-trimmed lockers. The 35 offers a berth to
starboard, settee/berth with upholstered backrest to port, and a
foldaway drop leaf table which seats six or folds neatly against the
forward bulkhead when not in use. And overhead there's a ventilation
hatch for plenty of light and air. Stowage is provided in lockers
and drawers under the berths and in bookshelves and lockers outboard
to port. Teak features include bulkheads, doors and trim for that
personal touch. To port in the passageway forward is the toilet room
with stowage outboard and under the vanity. And opposite is a
hanging locker, bureau, and shelf stowage. The forward cabin has a
bureau for guests, shelf stowage and lockers under the full-size
berths. Overall, the Pearson 35 provides sleeping accommodations for
five in comfort and privacy.
Any Pearson 35 embodies the coastal cruising desgn Bill Shaw
intended. Christina may well be the best maintained
and equipped example of this fine design on the market today!
