40' Pearson 40 1980 MOONSHINE


Designed by Bill Shaw and built to the highest standards by Pearson Yachts, MOONSHINE features a shoal draft, displacement hull form with an efficient centerboard that combine to provide excellent upwind performance, comfortable motion in a seaway and tremendous interior volume for a yacht her size. Her draft of four and a half feet with centerboard up allows access to less crowded cruising grounds normally limited to much smaller yachts. MOONSHINE has benefited by a complete overhaul with many recent upgrades and is well equipped for extended cruising.
