Pearson Ariel IB
Very good condition
Inboard engine FWC diesel
Ready to go. Be in the water before Memorial day!

Easy to sail, tracks well. Seaworthy design. Fast for its race rating.
Hull # 250, 1964, Length 25’7”, Draft 3’8”, Displacement 5500#, Full keel, Ballast 2500# internal lead
USCG Documented Net 5 T

Awlgrip refinished topsides 2019, Awlgrip refinished deck 2020, Deck hardware rebedded 2020

One owner for 41 years. My first keel boat, never needed to change.
Almost totally rebuilt/upgraded during that period including engine, mast, rudder, cockpit coamings, winch bases, handrails. Deck balsa core fixed and sealed, most hardware fasteners and backing plates upgraded, epoxy barrier coat sealed hull
One of the few Ariels with inboard power. Heavily built early fiberglass.
Probably Carl Alberg’s best design (sister boat – Commander – was his personal retirement boat!)
Many race wins including three times “Little Rhody” trophy for the Bristol YC ocean race, multiple BYC Wednesday night season championships
