Extremely affordable and comfortable offshore capable boat is available for sale with or without liveaboard moorage in Granville Island. This Pearson 530 is one of the few designs that is both seaworthy and very spacious inside. We have been continuously upgrading the boat over the past few years and are currently cruising in California, however due to a sudden change of plans, we unfortunately have to sell our beloved boat. This boat is in great shape and is ready to cross any ocean.
Some highlights of the past 2 year refit include:
• All new sails 2011-2012 (Both main and mizzen are in-boom furling)
• Top of the line 12v Fridge/Freezer
• 575W of solar panels with MPPT controller
• Rebuilt Max prop feathering propeller
• 125 Lbs Rocna anchor and 400 ft of chain
• Engine and transmission rebuilt in 2008 and have 600 hours
• VacuFlush toilet and holding tank

Other highlights:
