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 renamed PEARSON 26 ONE DESIGN (1978-1983?). 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.
