This boat has to be seen to be believed. The owner purchased SERENADE and started having improvements made, things customized, replaced... One of the other brokers in my office said, "It's like they lifted the mast up and slid a new boat under it". The mast, boom deck and hull are original- though the deck and hull have been painted and look like new. When the hardware, grab rails, etc. came off to paint, new hardware was put back on. Hatches and ports were replaced. Might as well put a new windlass on, right? 

The bottom was stripped and barrier coated. There weren't any blisters when he bought the boat- he just wanted to do it "while they were at it". Since they were doing that, let's have them replace all of the thru-hulls. Same thing with the topsides thru-hulls. Custom stern rail and swim ladder.. 

Chain plates, up-sized standing rigging, furler, mast step, running rigging, sails...

Replaced the fuel and holding tanks and hoses. Water is fiberglass integral to the boat, so it got to stay. Converted the stove from alcohol to a Force 10 propane one, including two custom fiberglass LPG lockers at the aft end of the cockpit. New cabin sole, custom (gorgeous) dinette table, hatches, ports, foam and fabrics... A Herreschoff interior would look nice, right? 

"I might as well put in a new engine- everything else is new", he said to me a few years ago. 

Normally I would consider listing five or ten "highlights", but in this case it's essentially the whole boat. "I'm never going to sell this, so I might as well make it the way I want it", he said to me on more than one occasion during the refit.

Look through the pictures, look through the inventory and you will see. It's a truly stunning boat.

If you love classic fiberglass boats this one is absolutely a head turner. Call, make an appointment and come see her for yourself. She speaks for herself. I can assure you there isn't a nicer Pearson 35 out there and she comes equipped with pride of ownership.


Forward Stateroom: Aft of the chain locker is the 5’11” x 32” x 84” V-berth, with a 5” custom foam mattress. There is a removeable center insert filler that can be removed for separate berths. Beneath the berth are tanks and on starboard a drawer and drop door locker.  Fiddled shelves run the length of both hullsides; above those shelves custom ash staving lines the hull.  Aft of the v-berth on starboard is a cedar lined hanging locker with a fiddled shelf above it.  On port there is a nightstand unit with 3 drawers and a locker beneath and one locker above it.  There is a sliding bypass door that can be closed for privacy to the cabin.  Ventilation and lighting are provided by two opening ports and an overhead hatch, with 2 brass LED reading lamps for additional light.  Headroom in this cabin is 5’11”.

Head: The head is located on port aft of the forward stateroom. The toilet is directly ahead and has a drop door locker above and behind it; another locker is above that and has sliding plexiglass doors.  To the left is a countertop with the sink and a top-loading storage bin.  Beneath the sink is a locker.  There are three small shelves for toiletries above the sink.  Ventilation and lighting are provided by an opening port, an overhead dorade and lights on either side of the mirror.  Headroom is 6’.

Saloon: Across from the head on starboard is a hanging locker with a fiddled shelf.  Next aft is a small counter with a locker above and a drawer and locker below.  There are opposing 6’5” straight settees, the starboard one with a pilot berth above it.  Both settees have storage beneath the seats.  The port side can pull out to convert to a double berth and has lockers behind the seatback.  Above the port settee are a pair of lockers with a cubby space between them.  There is a beautiful custom bulkhead mounted dinette table with custom teak and ash bookshelf and chartbook storage. Head room in the saloon is 6’2”. 

Galley: Aft of the settees is the galley.  On starboard are freezer and refrigeration boxes with storage above and behind them.  On port is the stove and oven, with tray storage beneath it.  Along the hullside are custom teak and Plexiglas lockers with a high fiddled shelf above.  Aft of the stove there is a large access dry bin and toward centerline, the sink. 

The entire saloon and galley spaces have four brass LED reading lamps, two teak LED overhead lights and one overhead strip light.  Additionally, there are five opening ports and an overhead hatch for ventilation. Headroom is 6’2”.
