Pearson 424

The Pearson 424 “RHYTHM” is a high-quality heavy displacement sloop built in the USA and exclusively for sale with DBY Boat Sales. This model became one of the most popular production models with many hundreds being built. Known for its stability and reliability. The 424 is easily handled by a couple and delivers surprising performance for a heaty displacement boat.

The boat has just completed a passage all the way from North America via New Zealand so is fully kitted out and ready to keep going.

It has a 2-stateroom interior. Its open aft cabin with a double bunk and nav station just inside the companionway is ideal for long passages, allowing the crew to have good communication with the watch.

The design has huge storage and a user-friendly layout, ideal for cruising for a family or just a couple.

Her owners have maintained her beautifully and she presents dry and clean.

The galley has great refrigeration plus a new Force 10 stove.

Rigging was replaced in 2015 and the motor rebuilt just over a year ago.

Rhythm is a walk up start to blue water sailing. Very well presented and nicely organised.
