Notes

The Pearson 424 (aft cockpit) and 422 (center cockpit) share the same hull and evolved from the 390 and 419. In addition to being one of the builders most successful models, it is highly thought of among serious blue water cruisers. Available as a cutter or ketch with at least 2 different layouts. Reverse mounted engine with Walter V-drive.
