About this Sailboat:

Blue Horizon, a 1981 32.3’ Pearson sloop #333, is ready for safe cruising. Designed by Bill Shaw and built by Pearson Yachts in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. We just returned from a 2000 mile blue water trip (Charleston, SC to Bermuda). The main sail is double reefed and there is a roller furled foresail. It is roomy with her 10.5’ beam. The galley is convenient with a sliding work table over the gimbaled propane 3 burner/oven stove, a very deep stainless steel sink and handy storage. We added a convenient shelf which doubles for food service and a laptop computer. The chart desk with storage is convenient for monitoring GPS position, direction, and speed. Emergency flares and fire extinguishers are convenient and upgraded. There is a starboard double settee with table, port single settee, and a V-berth. The bathroom has a foldaway sink and shower with foot pump. Tanks include water (78 gallons), fuel (28 gallons), holding (15 gallons), and propane (22 pounds).
