44' Hudson 1979 Pegasus


"Pegasus" cannot be compared to her peers.  This vessel is far and away superior to anything you are likely to come across in her class. Much of the shipboard equipment found aboard "Pegasus" would ordinarily be found aboard commercial vessels.  The vessels original masts have been replaced with aluminum masts.

Having been under the watchful eye of a full time and knowledgeable licensed Captain,  "Pegasus" was designed by William Garden to go to sea.

All fittings, hardware, portlights, hinges etc. aboard this vessel are of high quality.

Must see full specifications and descriptions! Scroll down for a detailed look at ships equipment when there.  Also,  please see video!

This vessel would very much appeal to the traditionalist,  the Circumnavigator or those wishing to place the vessel into charter service.  The vessel maintains a Coastwise Trade endorsement.

         Brokers Observations

Very seldom does one come across a vessel this well equipped for Ocean passages. All systems are heavy duty,  well thought out and redundant.

"Pegasus" is designed to take passengers that are not knowledgeable of Ocean passages out to sea in the comfort that they are accustomed.

Refurbishment of this vessel is constant and timely. Pegasus is a beautiful and well maintained vessel with the Captain being talented and absolutely  knowledgeable of this type of ship.

Replacement value is anyone's guess, but probably north of 700k.  It is felt that at the current asking price,  this vessel is opportunity.

         Why Selling?

The Captain has elected to take wounded veterans offshore.  So that they might experience this type of freedom.  This requires a vessel that would not heel (list). The Captain will employ a catamaran for this endeavor.
