Bill Shaw: "More and more, I’m convinced that cruising boats should be performance oriented…or maybe I should say performance boats should be cruising oriented. No matter how you put it, the Pearson 32 is an honest, dual purpose boat that can switch gears from cruising to racing, from warning gun to the start.....
In the case of the 32, that balance shows up in her exceptional cruising accommodations, anchor well, large cockpit, uncluttered deck and clean lines. From a racing point of view it shows up in her modern underbody, rig, rating and response."
