1964 Pearson Vanguard 32.5’ Sailboat - $8,000 (middle river)


condition: good
length overall (LOA): 32
make / manufacturer: Pearson
model name / number: Vanguard
propulsion type: sail
year manufactured: 1964

This is a 1964 Pearson Vaguard 32.5 foot sloop design by John Rhoades with a fiberglass hull, mahoghant trim and gas engine. The Universal Atomic 4 gas engine was removed and completely rebuilt in 2016 and has been professionally maintained by a local marina.

A very stable and ckassic design, she is constructed like they don’t make them anymore and is extremely stable in any wind. I have been on the water with as low as 4 knots and as high as 24 knots. She absolutely loves 7-10 knots and will move along nicely. Her beam is about 9’ and she draws 4.5’ with a full keel.

from Wikipedia:
The Pearson Vanguard is a classic sailboat designed in 1962 by Philip Rhodes. These boats were built by Pearson Yachts from 1963 to 1967. Pearson Vanguards are a classic cruiser known for world travel. A lovely design coupled with bullet-proof construction make the 32-foot Pearson Vanguard a classic sailboat in the truest sense of the word.

This boat has a refinished original Spruce boom, new electrical AC and DC systems, a composting head and a rebuilt refinished rudder. A fairly new 125% jib needs minor repair. A spinnaker, spinnaker pole and whisker pole are included.

A Bimini is included as are all the needed safety and sail accessories including radio and GPS. Basically everything is ready to go including new cushions. She needs some TLC but is seaworthy and is an excellent day sailor. She was originally built to sleep six and now is configured for four.

Over the last 7 years I have put about $12,000 into the boat in upgrades, new parts, new spreaders (aluminum), tuned the stays, refurbished the rudder, new ac/dc wiring, new batteries (2021), new plugs (2021), new battery charger and tons of accessories.

There is a very active user group online for these boats. The boat is currently in the water on Middle River. The slip may be available to lease. Call for more pictures and information.

Price is $8,000 or best offer. Available to show anytime.
