 This auction is for a 1973 Pearson 26 sailboat complete with mast, sails and rigging shown.  We are listing this boat for a third party and selling it off at no reserve completely as is.  The boat is located in a private yacht club in Boston Ma and is not available for viewing until after the auction.  The previous owner has become ill and cannot sail or maintain this boat any longer.

We visited the boat on 3-13-14 and took the pictures shown in this add.  The pictures represent the current condition as the boat presently sits.  We gave the boat a quick casual inspection to try and give you a better description of what you are bidding on.  Our observations are not a guarantee of condition in any way.  We are also listing 96 large pictures below the add to help you decide its value. 

We walked around the boat and it looks as the keel and rudder are intact and not damaged in any way.  We noticed an area about 2 square feet on the starboard side that looks as if it was repaired previously some time ago (see pictures).  You can see some grind marks in the gel coat in this area.  The rest of the hull looks to be original gel-coat.  We boarded the boat from the stern and walked all the decks.  All the decks look original and they all feel solid.  You can see the brush marks showing through the non skid areas from when the tan gel coat was applied to the mold originally.  The decks are indeed original as this is a common sight on older Pearsons that begin to age.  The boat needs a good cleaning overall and is looks weathered from sitting.  The previous owner stated that the boat was last sailed two years ago and has been sitting uncovered for two winters .  The mast , rigging and boom look to be intact with the exception of the life-lines needing a bit of work.  There appears o be a roller furling system as well. The cabin doors are starting to rot out and the cabin is cluttered and dirty.  There is some water in the sump that is about flush with the top of the bilge hatch.  There is sailing gear all over as well as some tools and personals.  The previous owner plans to clean the boat out but he seems very reasonable and I am sure he will only remove his personal items and nothing that is specific to this boat.  There is at least three sails down below that include a main, jib and what looks to be a lightweight spinnaker.  We did not remove any gear to inventory whats there so please just view the pictures and bid accordingly.  There looks to be sailbags, life jackets, cushions, anchore rode, sail hardware, lines and a laminated tiller handle all down below that will go with the boat.  There is a stove, ice box, sink v- berth and head that will make this boat a good small cruiser if desired.  There is no outboard engine included but it was previously rigged for a Yamaha engine and the controls will remain with the boat.  Overall I think if you are handy you can get this boat into seaworthy condition easily.  Pearson as you know is a very good quality boat and this boat will make a worthy project.

The boat is located in a private yacht club in Dorchester Ma. It sits way in the back behind many other boats that will not be launched until later this spring.  The owner is a very reasonable and forthcoming person and will work with the buyer to have the boat removed. It may take some time to arrange the logistics of moving the boat as well as patience.  The owner said he will pay the fee to un-step the mast for the buyer if needed.  I don't think the buyer will be permitted to perform any work on the boat where she sits as it is a gated and private club.  I'm sure if you plan on sailing her away in the spring you can prep her for the water where she sits. Regardless of how you plan on moving the boat weather by land or sea it will take some time for the boat to become accessible .    Please do not bid unless you can abide by these terms.

The winner of the auction must send us a $200 deposit by pay-pal within 24 hours of the auction ending.  We will then coordinate the time for the winner to inspect the boat within one week after the sale and complete the transaction. If the winning bidder inspects the boat and decides not to purchase the boat we will return the deposit immediately.  The current owner has the title and registration papers that he will forward to us after the boat is paid in full.  We accept certified funds, wire transfer or cash for balance.   Please do not bid if these terms do not work for you.  This boat is being sold with no reserve price so high bid wins.  We do not charge a documentation fee so whatever the price is at the end of the auction is what you pay.  If you have any questions please feel free to email or call me at (860)510-2623 anytime from 8am to 6 pm EST.  The auction ends Friday night at 9pm EST.  Thank you for looking and good luck bidding!
