Notes

The Pearson 424 (aft cockpit) and 422 (center cockpit) have the same hull with a lead keel incased in fiberglass. At the aft end of the keel the fiberglass is about 3/4 inch thick. Above that is a deep sump. That is considered the weakness in the boat which many owners have had modified. Available as cutter or ketch. KETCH RIG: I(IG): 47.25' / 14.40m J: 15.75' / 4.80m P: 40.00' / 12.19m E: 14.50' / 4.42m PY: 23.00' / 7.01m EY: 8.75' / 2.67m
