The spacious interior features cherry stained white oak joinery with teak sole. An open salon provides ample room for any length cruise. Port side is a long settee with pilot berth. Starboard is a casual seating area. Moving forward and down the full galley is to your right with upper & lower cabinets, solid surface counters, stainless steel sink, refrigerator, ice maker, and a three-burner range with oven. Across from the galley is a spacious dinette with fold-away table. It seats several and sleep two. Storage is ample with bulkhead shelves and under-seat lockers.

The forward cabin has v-berth, under-berth storage, and hanging locker. The roomy head compartment has head, vanity with sink, and shower. This Pearson has accommodations for overnight and extended cruises.

Auxiliary power is provided by a brand new Yanmar 110-hp turbo-diesel engine. A new Westerbeke generator provides offshore electrical power while two new reverse cycle HAC units maintain interior comfort.

This vessel is Hull #1 and was actually the prototype for the Pearson Countess 44 future production. She is heavily built and was used as the finish line yacht for the Mackinac race. Her tall rig was designed by Ted Hood and shipped from France.
