    In 1959, Pearson commissioned naval architect Carl Alberg to design a 22-foot (6.7 m) cruiser suitable for racing in the Midget Ocean Racing Club (MORC). His design, called the Electra, was the predecessor of the Ensign.

    Pearson dealers John Nichols and Osman Robinson of the Nichols Yacht Yard in Mamaroneck, New York, found many prospective Electra buyers would prefer the boat with a larger cockpit and smaller cabin. They passed the information along to Pearson, who asked Alberg to design a day sailer, suitable for one-design racing, based on the Electra hull. The Electra Day sailer was first built by Pearson Yachts in 1962. It was later renamed the Ensign when the class association was formed to avoid confusion with the Electra MORC racer.

    Pearson Yachts of Portsmouth, Rhode Island built Ensigns from 1962 to 1983. They manufactured 1775 boats. The original molds were sold to the Ensign Class Association when Pearson Yachts went bankrupt. Ensign Spars, Inc. started building new Ensigns in 2001 using the original molds, calling their boats the New Ensign Classic.

    The Ensign was inducted into the American Sailboat Hall of Fame in 2002
