The Pearson 424 is a popular model as it has proven to be an ideal cruising vessel; with large cockpit, wide side decks and 2 companionways for easy access to the decks from either the salon or the aft cabin. The Ketch rig allows for a variety of sail plans, so it there is always a comfortable sail configuration for whatever the weather produces. The ‘open-plan’ aft cabin with the bunk and nav station at the base of the companionway is ideal for passage making as the crew has good communication with whoever is on watch. The interior is spacious with a large salon and galley area as well as a very comfortable v-berth in the bow. Huge amounts of storage and an accommodating layout make this an ideal cruising boat for a couple or a family.
