1993 Sailboat Sea Pearl
The Sea Pearl 28 combines portability with 19 inch draft, an unstayed cat-ketch rig, water ballast and outboard power to make a unique product. It is fully ramp launch-able from the trailer and boasts the fact that you can go from trailer to sailing in 15 minutes.
The cat-ketch rig works well on this craft. The short carbon fiber masts are stepped with ease in raising and lowering the rig and they offer hands-off tacking. With full battens and lazy-jacks, you can get underway quickly and drop the sails with some degree of dignity by just releasing the halyard.
With the board down, this vessel draws 5 feet, 6 inches. The interior of the 28 can sleep four. The galley slides out over the starboard berth and the head is under the V-berth.
Also included is a 15-horsepower Honda outboard motor and has a dry weight of 3750 pounds.
