Pearson Ensign 22
I really don’t want to sell this boat. But what does one do when there are two old boats, two old sailors, and “children” (no longer a joke,,,moved to the west coast - PERMANENTLY! - …..It seems.
The Pearson Ensign has classic lines (a Carl Alberg design) and is great for daysailing with friends and family. A large cockpit (I’ve had 10 on board, a couple kids hanging off the bow). Also, camping in the caddy cabin and under the tent: three people and one dog to P-town.
The Ensign is 22.5’ and a comfortable 7’ beam for people with short legs to stretch out.
She sails beautifully, smoothly, safely. Rigged for racing (pre 1976 Bicentennial). The spinnaker is somewhere, sails are not new, repaired last year and work fine. There may be one extra main sail, a #2 Genoa, and a small jib found on the beach in 1978.
- 6hp Evinrude outboard that works, but real sailors don’t use it
- Five jack stands that may be worth more than the boat
- A new canvas cover made by Doyle for covering the cockpit in summer
- Frame and canvas for covering during winter storage
- Mushroom, mooring ball, etc, and chain (check with Joel on when replaced)
- Boat cushions, bumpers, extra lines, extra fittings, etc
Pearson Ensigns are a strong, unsinkable fiberglass boat that is still actively raced (and still being built) more than 30 years after her introduction. Ensigns are probably the most comfortable daysailer ever built. They have high backrests and a large, deep cockpit. The Ensigns are ideal for families or relaxing picnic cruises. Their cockpits are larger than even J44s. Just as important Ensigns are one of the easiest daysailers to singlehand that we know of. People in their 60s to 70s, men and women, love being able to easily singlehand these boats.
