1974 Pearson 419
Boat Type: Center Cockpit Address: Ft Myers, FL, US Price: $65,000


Its  remarkable that a 1974 ketch can be in this tremendous condition.


Being a Pearson 419 ketch with its solid hull and center cockpit; it's no surprise that the designed delivers a secure and roomy cockpit, a well appointed spacious salon, a nicely laid out galley and two comfortable state rooms with adjoining heads. What will astonish you is that the upgrades and conditions of this boat would give any vessel 30 years younger a run for its money.

Brokers Notes:

Approaching "Salubrious", this Pearson 419 Ketch, I was taken back. Being of a 1974 vintage, I excepting to see a haggard, aged vessel. That was not the case, the hull is in great shape, the deck is solid, the life line are new and the stanchions are solid. The rigging is in top notch shape and the cockpit with its new cushions looked inviting. But what really surprised me was the interior, LED lighting, new counter tops, an Isotherm Refrigerator/Freezer. The owner is a skilled professional woodworker and it shows throughout the boat. Then to top it off a virtually new 8 Kw genset and 50 hp Perkins engine.   If you are looking for a live aboard or a comfortable affordable coastal sailor you must see this boat.

You are preparing to descend into the cabin, through the companionway, but before you do you notice a small console panel located on the starboard side. This panel provide the switches  to illuminate the cabin below, control the stereo and it has the first of the two ICOM VFH radios.

 You proceed down the steps and you arrive in the main salon. with its 12.5' beam and 6.6' headroom and teak and holly sole and classic wood styling, it feels open, inviting and comfortable.  as you glance to the port side, the new Corian counters top galley catches your eye. The ample storage space, the stainless steel double sink, the three burner stove and oven combo and the new microwave. It a place for those who cook - can.

 Turning and looking over at the starboard side you spot the Isotherm double- door refrigerator and freezer unit. The unit is located below a nice size standing counter that has storage above it.

If you turn and head aft you will encounter the chart table on the outside wall and, a step further in the passageway,  the upgrade electrical panel and the door to the engine room. This engine room delivers ample room to work and free access to the 5 - 12V batteries, purchased in 2014, the Westerbeke 8kW generator and the Perkins 50 hp engine.

 Leaving the engine room and heading back you have arrived at the aft stateroom with its en-suite head. all the mattresses on this vessel were replaced in 2010 and have hardly been used. The head is a Rairtan manual flush toilet and the sink and countertop have been updated.

 Heading back to the salon on the starboard side is a 6 person Settee with a table that can be lowered to form a double berth. Stereo speakers are located above the settee and the single berth lounge, across the cabin, behind the wood trimming. This provides  surround sound for the flat screen mounted on the port wall.

 Continuing to the front of the boat you encounter the second head to your right and a full hanging closet to the left. Step forward and you reach a large V-Berth stateroom.
