This version of the PEARSON 27 is the same as the TRITON 27 and similar to the earlier US 27 by US Yachts. In 1984-85 Pearson sold a line of sailboats that it called the Tritons. The molds for these yachts were actually purchased from US Yachts, a division of Bayliner Inc. (the Buccaneer series of sailboats).
Shoal draft: 3.50'/1.07m.
All are distantly related to the CHASER 29, an IOR 1/2 ton design by Doug Peterson (1975).
