1963 Pearson Electra Weekender

19 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

Offering a capable, high-quality Alberg weekender, modified full-keel with tons of gear, new engine, fresh bottom paint (July 2012), NO issues you’ll have to repair! You have a trained eye, don’t you? Look at my photos taken yesterday! This is a sweet, clean, cozy, well-equipped trailerable vessel that can handle the Santa Barbara Channel without a hitch. Tow it home after your purchase or leave her where she sits? You’ll have total flexibility which is rare in yacht ownership. Sail the pristine Channel Islands National Park. Rarely, does a trailerable sailboat possess both seaworthiness and superb construction quality. This particular Alberg design is industry known as, “the little BIG boat.” It possesses BOTH qualities! Pearson Electra sloops have competed successfully in the Pacific TransPac to Hawaii, and Frank Guernsey (the famous singlehander) set out for Cape Horn aboard one. This boat even has a dedicated chart table and chart drawer! Electra/Ensigns are the largest one-design full keel fleet in the world. With her new engine, Auto-Helm, fresh bottom paint and the incredible (and expensive) EZ Loader Roller trailer, not to mention the tons of gear, you simply cannot go wrong with this turn-key package. Excellent local ownership history. Using wholesale numbers, my new Honda engine is easily worth $1,500, my EZ loader trailer could be sold fast for $2,500, and the vessel itself is easily worth around $3,500. That’s $7,500 total, wholesale. The first intelligent individual that places $4,500 in my hand will realize an extraordinary value! Don’t forget, leaving the boat at the current landing will give you unlimited water (crane) deployment (and monthly storage), all for only $105 per month! Arrive at the harbor and the attendants will have you in the water ready to sail the Channel Islands within minutes!! I’m motivated for a quick sale because I’m buying a larger catamaran. Those bringing cash to an inspection will assume ownership for LESS! Don’t miss out on a sweet little creampuff. You will not be disappointed.

Equipment on Board:

Most of the equipment onboard is new, or near new! Email for the impressive list. Way too many items for this description box. It includes new Raymarine ST1000 Plus Tiller Pilot, three (3) anchors w/chain & rode (CQR/Bruce/Danforth), custom tabernacle mast raising and lowering hardware, new speed and depth electronics, new shortwave w/SSB receiver, excellent cockpit table, etc. Everything works!
