Clint Pearson launched Bristol Yachts in the fall of 1964 after he stepped out of the presidency of the Pearson Yachts Division of Grumman Allied Industries. Purchasing the Poppasquash Point boat yard and the land on Franklin Street to establish a manufacturing plant, Pearson began the production of various yachts including the Bristol 27 designed by Carl Alberg. In one year 172 Bristol 27's were built by Pearson's growing company. Bristol Yachts went thru many changes over the years. Early models were all full keel or keel-centerboard designs. Herreshoff designed many models as well but with the exception of the 29/30, they were all fin and skeg or fin keel designs with more of the racing slant. Bristol Yachts built a wide range of models from the 19' Corinthian to the 65.5 before the company went bankrupt in 1997. -Boston Sunday Herald, June 6, 1965
Most of the Bristol Yachts came from the design team of Ted Hood who among other fine designs was an America's Cup Designer. Some of the more recent designs were done by Dieter Empacher who at one time was employed by Hood design group. One of his designs is the Bristol 35.5. Most of the Bristols are built more heavily than most current production sailboats. They can be raced using the PHRF system, however most were designed for cruising and comfort. Hood designs generally are centerboard boats which offer performance and seaworthiness without the constricting restrains of deep draft.
