From 1968-1982 the PEARSON 35 remained relatively unchanged and had the longest production run of any other Pearson model.
Diesel power available as an option as was a yawl rig.
Boats were delivered with a number of different engines including those from Farymann, Westerbeke, and Yanmar.
Not the same as a much later PEARSON 35 (1997?) which is very similar to the PEARSON 34-2 and of which few were built.
