The Pearson 38 is a performance cruiser, which combines the best features of several other Pearson models. The objective was to produce a boat that could comfortably accommodate two couples in their own private staterooms in a length that could easily be handled by just two people.
To accomplish this we designed the Pearson 38 with ample beam, a long waterline, generous freeboard and an easily handled rig. Draft was kept to 4’9" by using our proven wing keel design, which also tends to dampen the boat’s motion in a seaway.

The forward cabin features an island double berth, a hanging locker to starboard, and a locker to port. An opening hatch and two opening portlights allow for plenty of light and good ventilation. A solid teak bi-fold door opens from this cabin into the saloon. Electric fan and adequate lighting.
n the main salon there’s a centerline table which seats a crowd with its leaves extended and folds down to create extra space when not in use. If you need to sleep a third couple, the dinette area can be quickly converted to a double berth. To port, the settee berth doubles as a seat for the aft facing chart table which is surrounded by plenty of space for built-in electronics. Just aft of the chart table is an extra wet locker and bank or drawers suitable for navigational accessories and other small items. On the forward bulkhead "wall" mounted is the Insignia 24-inch color tv with amplified antenna. On the same bulkhead towards the center line is the Force 10 propane heater.
The galley is to starboard – convenient to the companionway but out of the traffic pattern. It includes double sinks, a huge icebox, propane stove with oven, and plenty of stowage. The engine is located under the sinks and is easily accessed from all four sides, a three cylinder, naturally aspirated diesel rated at 35 hp at 3200 rpm. Serial number 02774. Freshwater cooled with heat exchanger. Kanzaki transmission rebuilt in September 2019. Located under galley sink with good access to virtually all adjustable parts. Engine is clean and serviced regularly. Spare alternator in hanging locker. Engine spares under port settee in salon. There is a two-burner propane stove with oven. Large refrigerated compartment with Alder Barbour freezer compartment. Deep chilling area has a sump pump mounted for easy drainage of liquids. Double sinks. Storage above and below stove. Drawers for utensils. There also is a propane kettle grill that mounts on the cockpit rail.
The owner’s stateroom is aft of the galley and its large double berth extends under the cockpit. An overhead hatch and two opening ports into the cockpit assure plenty of light and ventilation. A large hanging locker with built-in shelves provides plenty of space for personal gear.
Opposite the aft stateroom is the roomy head compartment with attractive vanity, mirrors and enclosed hamper bag. The shower curtain keeps the vanity area from getting wet and since it’s only on one side it doesn’t cling to you. A hinged cover prevents the toilet from getting wet and since shiny formica surfaces on the bulkheads and door shed water like a fiberglass enclosure.
VHF Radio: Horizon Intrepid with ram microphone. Antenna mounted at masthead.
Instruments: Datamarine wind, speed and depth. Link 5000 and 5001, Garmin 220 GPS mounted at nav station, second newer Garmin mounted at helm. Raytheon RL9 radar.
Autopilot: Raytheon ST 4000+
Solar Power: Two 80-watt solar panels are mounted over the bimini and assist in charging the three batteries aboard.
Electrical: There are three 12-volt batteries charged by onboard charger when at dockside and by two 80 watts solar panels when away from shore power. Two house batteries are group 31 and starter battery is group 27. Solar panels have external fuse and controller, as well as inline fuses. There is a 30-amp, 50-foot shore power cord.
The large cockpit has several modern amenities that makes cruising more enjoyable; comfortable backrests, contoured seating, an on-deck ice box, even a hot and cold shower at the walk-through transom. Now you can rinse off after swimming without going below dripping salt water. The transom itself has a built-in swim platform, which makes boarding a dinghy convenient and safe. It also has a comfortable boarding ladder that’s easy on bare feet. Other key deck features include custom anchor roller, midship chocks and cleats, sturdy teak toe rails, and of course, a foredeck anchor well. Anchors: Two Danforth anchors with chain and rode are onboard. One is mounted at the bow and raise and lowered by a Lofrans Kobra electric windlass that has controls forward and in the cockpit. The second is stored in the lazarette with its own chain and rode. The cockpit sports a large teak cockpit table with cockpit cushions and speakers to enjoy the music from the stereo. The cockpit is covered by a sturdy bimini (with enclosure and connector) and dodger (tan). Two solar panels(80 watt) for charging the batteries when not on shore power are mounted to the bimini top.
The double spreader rig and recessed inboard genoa tracks permit closer sheeting angles resulting in better windward performance. The fully battened mainsail provides better sail shape in light air and makes furling a lot easier than conventional mainsails. The roller furling headsail with padded luff makes dousing the jib a snap and allows you to reef it without causing undue strain on the sailcoth. All the sail control lines are led aft to the cockpit for safety and convenience. No need to go forward to raise sails, put in a reef, or adjust halyard tension.
Harmony has mainsail, 135 % genoa and an asymetrical spinnaker. All are in very good condition, as are halyards, sheets and control lines.
