    Her dimensions are 39' 3" overall length, 12' 5" beam, with a displacement of 17,500 pounds. The Pearson 39's hull is a solid lay-up of fiberglass and resin, while decks and cabin structures use a composite of fiberglass and balsa wood core. The quality of the fiberglass work is quite good for a production boat; attachments are neat and well-finished. Interior joiner work is well done, and systems are neatly installed and compliant with standards in effect at the time. There is some use of fiberglass hull liners, although not to the same extent as most modern production boats. Adding or enhancing systems is more easily accomplished than on boats that rely more on fiberglass liners for interior components. The deck and cabin trunk of the Pearson 39 are neatly laid out with plenty of opening hatches and ports for cabin ventilation. There is a built-in anchor roller at the bow for storage of a plow anchor and a locker on the foredeck for storage of spare anchor and rode. The mainsheet traveler is on the cabin top forward of the companionway, and all sail controls are led to the cockpit. The steering wheel and pedestal are aft, and there are a gate in the stern rail and a fold-up boarding ladder on the transom. The interior arrangement is typical of the size and type of boat. Aft of the main saloon are a large galley to starboard and navigation station to port; further aft are a starboard quarter berth cabin and a second head to port. The Pearson 39 is rigged as a double-spreader, masthead sloop with a sail area/displacement ratio of 18.1 and a displacement/length ratio of 246. The result is a sensible design that provides a very nice balance of performance, comfort, and ease of handling. The Pearson 39 offers good performance and handling under sail and power and is easily handled by a sailing couple. The contemporary styling and solid construction should ensure that these models hold their value.
