Notes

The PEARSON 26 was one of the company's most successful models. A number of changes were made during a very long production run. The PEARSON 26 WEEKENDER (or PEARSON 26W) has a longer cockpit and shorter coach roof. With a few very rare exceptions, all PERSON 26's have outboard wells and rely on an outboard motor for auxiliary power. Some boats were built at League City, TX (USA). Dimensions from original Pearson brochure (1974) *(Exact 'P' dimension is disputed. - 2009)
