I am selling a sailboat that I was told is a Pearson Triton.  However, a gentleman who was interested, and has owned two Tritons, looked at it and does not believe it is one.  Some of the details are wrong, such as not having the two portlights on the front of the main cabin, and that the tiller comes up aft of the cockpit instead of in the cockpit.

The hull number that I got from my title is BVN225BR.[img][/

It is NOT a Pearson Triton. There is no doubt about that. As soon as I get a chance, I'm going to study the photo a bit more and see what I can come up with.

There wasn't any standard numbering system in the US until after this thing was built. It was up to the builder as to how, where and IF the hulls were numbered.
In CT, one HAS to have a hull# in order for a vessel to be registered. If you don't have one, you have to get them to create one and they affix it to the hull. 

The hull does look like it COULD be an Alberg design.  But it's really hard tell from the angle of the photo. The bowsprit and outboard chainplates make me think that it was orginally sold as a 'kit'.  Another photo would help if that's possible. Especially something showing the boat in profile.
