We’ve been alluding to it for a week or two, but now that the ink is dry, we can contain ourselves no longer. We bought ourselves a boat!
She’s a Carl Alberg classic, full keeled with long overhangs and beautiful lines. She’s no spring chicken, but she’s strong; at least a few of her sisters have sailed around the world. She doesn’t have all the creature comforts of a 40’ Beneteau or an RV, but that’s not what we were looking for. We were looking for something simple, ruggedly built, and beautiful. We think we did well.
Selkie, our 1962 Pearson Triton, is currently resting in San Carlos, Mexico, awaiting our arrival in July.
We’ve begun to compile information on Pearson Tritons, and hopefully this site will become a wealth of information on this classic boat. Soon we’ll have a dedicated page to all things Triton related: blogs, restoration projects, reviews and more.
Let us know what you think of her!
Where will I sleep and when can I come on board?p
In the cockpit, under the stars (or where ever you want!) and as soon as you’d like! We’re pretty excited to see her ourselves and bummed to have to wait 3 1/2 months!
Thanks Carol! We think so too!
Congratulations on your Carl Alberg designed Triton. We are the proud owners of an Alberg 30. Alberg designed boats are fantastic to sail. You will defiantly enjoy your new boat.

Ray and Nikki,
Thanks for the comments. We checked out your boat on your blog and she’s a beauty! We also were looking at the Alberg 30s and impressed with their design, lines and reputation. It’s great to hear that you love the sailing aspects of her too. We’re looking forward to following your blog as well! Thanks again!
Katie and Mark
yee-ha!! so happy for you guys!
You probably know, more than anyone else out there, how many hours and spreadsheets went into this decision and purchase. We can’t wait to have you down there with us at some point! Also, did you see our ‘Tribute’ photo post to La Brisa? You and Lyra are both featured! We miss you!

Congratulations on a beautiful and classic boat! Tritons have always been one of my first full-keel loves. They simply do not build them like that anymore. Can’t wait to read about how you outfit her and where she takes you.
Thanks Kevin! Yes, we certainly think she’s a ‘looker’. We’re excited to pick everyone’s brains on the best refit options. Please come back and give us your two cents!
Hey guys – love your blog. By any chance were you guys in Marina Seca
between Christmas and New Years last year? We were removing the mast
from our 33′ sloop there and saw a young couple on a Triton in the yard.
We are returning next week for a couple of weeks refit and then sailing
on the sea for a month. Maybe we will see you there!
Hello there! No, we were probably wishing we were in Mexico last Christmas, but actually getting snowed on in Montana. I wonder how many other Triton’s there are down in San Carlos…. We plan on being there early July – we hope to cross paths with you at some point. What boat are you on?
Katie and Mark
