Notes

Daysailor/Weekender version of PEARSON 26 with larger cockpit, (no bridge deck) shorter coach roof, the same rig and somewhat lighter displacement.
With a few cosmetic changes, this version was first called the PEARSON 26W.
Of these 2 variants, at least 300 were built.
All PERSON 26's have outboard wells and nearly all rely on outboard motors for auxiliary power.
