About PearsonYachts.org

Pearson Yachts Brochure

Pearson Yachts FlagAs a robust "Boat Owners Website", PearsonYachts.org is designed to provide support for all Pearson owners and sailing enthusiasts. The purpose and strategy is to preserve information in perpetuity, including original documenation from the builder and contributions from current and past boat owners. In addition there are references to many different resources available on the net, including websites and social media links.

Online Community - One Size Does Not Fit All

There are many online communities of sailors on the web, and each of us has our own preferred methods of communication. Here are the more popular ones for Pearson owners:

  • Social Media feed "Facebook Pearson Yachts", is where to follow a stream of commentary and photography.
  • List Server "Google Group Pearson Boats", is where to follow a "chat group" of questions and answers through email and attachments.

Both of these are quite effective, but not content driven - in other words the content is free-form and may be difficult to find a month or a year from now.

Online Community - Captains Forum

Here you will find a content-driven Bulletin Board or "Forum" where discussion topics are organized in logical boating categories, that are periodically refined, for easy location and retrievel over time. In addition several Pearson fleets have implemented Forums on their owners sites - you can find them from the Sailboats page for specific models. We encourage all to register for the Captains Forum, which also includes boat registry in the profile.

Pearson Sailboats

A table of all of the Pearson models with specs and references to more detailed web pages. The future goal is to load all specifications into a relational database.

Members Userid

Once forum registration is complete you will gain access to the database to post discussion topics and upload photos and documents. The registration process is administered by a widely used open source software package.

Captains Forum

This is the Simple Machines Forum application that provides secure access to the Captains Community Bulletin Boards. It contains specific categories for members to post questions, information, attachments, and other relavent topics for boaters.

Boat Registry

The boat registry database utilizes the security and privacy settings of the member's profile to store specific boat information at registration time. Information such as: Pearson model, hull number, home port, and more.

Photo Gallery

This is the Coppermine Photo Gallery application that serves as the database of photo albums based on vessel names or numbers. It allows members to create and add to their own albums.
