Update April, 2017: Seller returned to the Rio on 4 April from a fun & quick voyage to/from Belize, saying his plans are changing and he'd like to sell this sailboat soon. Now, 17 April, a large price reduction to $50,000!!! Fantastic deal, especially at that new price!
This is exactly what you hope to read when considering a used sailboat: The seller has applied a substantial pile of gold toward improving this boat in the past year! NEW: Magnum inverter/charger, Jabsco Quiet electric head/new hoses, bottom job/paint including InterProtect 2000e barrier coats and Trinidad antifouling (quality), chain galvanizing, batteries, varnishing, etc.
This is truly a "raise the sail and GO" boat, ready and willing for new adventures... with you! And yes, the engine/propulsion works just fine - no disappointments.
Your ideal Pearson is already conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean! Now safely tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane season, same-day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it! Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja). Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do. Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!
