General Details

(LOCATION: Port Clinton OH) This Pearson 303 Sloop is a freshwater cruiser that is solidly built and easy to sail. She features a spacious cockpit designed for day-cruising and a roomy interior with accommodations for over-night and extended getaways.

On deck we have a spacious cockpit with seating for four, bimini top, and pedestal helm. Equipped with stainless steel bow pulpit, rails, and stanchions, plastic coated lifelines, newer main sail, 150% genoa, ¾ oz genoa, and spare main, she is ready to sail. Features include: aluminum mast and boom, main sheet traveler on cabin top, genoa track with adjustable cars, Lewmar 40 primary winches, Lewmar 30 main winch, and two Lewmar halyard winches. Ground tackle is one Fortress anchor with chain and rode.

The spacious interior has room to relax, dine, and sleep. The galley fills the rear port side with cabinets, counter, sink, two-burner stove, and top-loading ice box. Opposite the galley is a nav station with chart table and quarterberth aft. Forward of the galley we have facing settees with centerline fold-away dining table. There is ample storage to keep everything you need at hand and out of sight. The forward stateroom has v-berth, under-berth storage, nightstand with drawer storage, and hanging locker. The enclosed head has vanity and shower.

This one-owner 30' Pearson Sloop has many recent upgrades. Aux power is provided by a 13-hp Yanmar 2GMF diesel engine. Seller says bring all offers!  Call now to schedule a showing of this exceptional  Pearson  303.


By the early 1980s, Pearson Yachts of Portsmouth, Rhode Island, had built more than 1,000 Bill Shaw-designed Pearson 30s. To replace that seemingly timeless design, in 1983 Shaw created the Pearson 303, and it's an entirely different boat. More than 300 were built before production ceased in 1986. Above the waterline, the Pearson 303's hull is solid laminate. Balsa core is used in the bottom and in the deck. The rudder is mounted to a substantial skeg, which helps the boat track well downwind. With its broad beam, the Pearson 303 is quite stiff, and it likes to be sailed on its feet to avoid excessive weather helm. It has a seakindly motion and offers a dry ride and a comfortable, "big boat" feel.
