Pearn 25 built in 1957 by N Pearn & Sons Ltd on a 1930s Chris-Craft US racing boat design. Truly in lovely condition throughout, a rare classic head turner, most of these boats were built in wood, only 4 were made in fiberglass and this was the very first GRP one made. Can be utilized for commercial use as a touristic passenger carrier as was this one on her old engine in the Scilly isles. Now with a new engine in 2001 with only 320 hours use, if you need a tender for your J-class yacht, look no further. 2021 survey available by request.

Probably only 12 built to this design.
Often accused of being a Riva, great delight in telling people she is actually a Pearn & Sons based on a 1930s Chris-Craft racing boat.
