The Bill Shaw-designed Pearson 32 still shines among the club racers and coastal cruisers. Its draw is that it more than meets the needs of cruising the Bay, without sacrificing performance.
Passion has a traditional main with a roller-furling jib, and a traveler in the cockpit. Pearson 32's shoal draft stats come with an efficient foil shape and external lead ballast, providing enough lift and lateral plane to enhance sailing ability both on and off the wind. She has a comfort rating of 6 people.
