FRESH WATER TANK
Price reduced by $6 000 !
This ketch-rigged Pearson 424, Patricia Bess is in the water in Deltaville, VA. The Pearson 424 is a classic crowd-pleaser and her grey hull with white striping sets her apart from the rest of the boats in the anchorage. The current owner has made continuous upgrades and improvements. The boat was out of the water over the winter and splashed in May, so Patricia Bess is ready to go.
Patricia Bess has the ‘open-plan’ aft cabin with the bunk and nav station at the base of the companionway – ideal for passagemaking as the crew has good communication with whoever is on watch. The vessel has 2 companionways, so that there is no need to disturb the crew who occupy the aft cabin. Interior is spacious with a large 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.
Patricia Bess has the following:
Rolly Tasker Genoa (2021)
Avon 10′ RIB
Mercury 9.9 HP outboard motor
New running rigging (2021)
