RARE FIND !!
Most Tritons with the masthead rig (sloop) were built by Aeromarine in California.
(owned by Grumman Co., as was Pearson Yachts) According to owners, these were more solidly built, than the east coast version, with decks of solid glass laminate and without the wood trim.

Carl Alberg, a Swedish-born Naval Architect, was unknown as a yacht designer in 1959 and the Pearson Triton was to provide the flying start to his career. Alberg’s brief for the Triton, cooked up in casual conversation with Tom Potter (a lifelong yacht broker with an eye for the future of family cruising) was to design a 28 foot racer/cruiser with full headroom that could sleep a family of four and that could be built for under 10,000 dollars. In using fiberglass Alberg was able to come up with a boat that was unique at the time in offering more interior space than its wooden counterparts and at a much lower cost. Her original bare boat price was only 9,700 US dollars.
The Triton sails as gracefully as she looks. She’s forgiving and nimble. Her short waterline means her light air performance is respectable, and as the wind picks up she heels quickly which increases her LWL and therefore hull speed. West Coast boats, being heavier built, are generally stiffer.
