I haven't owned a Pearson Triton but looked one over for my son. What I remember was it had an Atomic 4 engine that needed replacement. Plenty of room for engine access/removal (in this model, anyway).
There was some deck/core de-lamination at the corners of forward cabin trunk, out to the deck rail. I suspect this was from too much stress from an over tightened rig. Not a major repair if the core didn't get soaked and only the deck glass requires replacement in that area.
That was my observation. Further evaluation of the problem might have revealed a problem with structure between the chain plates and deck.
Another person purchased the boat and the only repairs I noticed was the deck glass repair.
Life lines and rails were rather low for on deck work.
Nice lines and plenty of cockpit room for a family and should make for a nice coastal cruiser. Nothing I would take off shore for any long passages.
Just my opinion, FWIW.
