The 303 Pearson 1983 is a wonderful cruising sailboat with excellent accommodations and amenities found on larger boats, the 303 Pearson offers wide side decks and a large cockpit to enjoy the sailing adventure. 


You can step onto the wide side decks by either the port or starboard boarding gate.  Maneuverability is excellent.  The cockpit is large and features a removable elevated helm seat and a large storage lazarette under the port seat.  The helm is centered with excellent visibility.  Entering the main cabin is down a few steps.  Immediately to port is the galley with featuring an in-counter refrigerator, single stainless steel sink and ample counter and storage space.  To starboard is the aft berth. Larger that most quarter berths, it will sleep two comfortably.  Access to the engine compartment is under the companionway steps.  The main salon is forward and features port and starboard settees with storage under the bottom cushions and behind the side cushions.  Outboard storage shelfs offer excellent storage for book and other items.  Each settee will make into additional berths.  The dinette table is neatly stored in the up position and folds down into a smaller table for the starboard settee or an additional leaf will fold up for both.  Further forward and to starboard is the head compartment with a manual pump toilet, molded vanity top and sink, and storage.  Across from the head is a hanging locker.  All the way forward is the V-berth.  A filler cushion can be used to convert into a double berth.  Plenty of outboard storage. 


The interior features beautiful fabrics and wood trim cabinets. Overhead hatches and opening ports make for excellent ventilation and the closed ports add additional natural light.


The L-Shaped galley is located aft and to port.  With ample counter top and storage spaces, the galley will please the chef.
