1976 Pearson 365

Featured image


Classic Bill Shaw design provides confidence at sea, with an encapsulated lead keel with cut-away forefoot and skeg-protected rudder, ketch rig for flexibility and efficiency, sea-kindly hull design, and high-sided roomy cockpit. Boat was stored for 10 years up until a few seasons ago. The new Raymarine instruments and sails that had been purchased for the earlier refit were then installed, thus seeing very little sea time. Pearsons are known for their solid construction which includes bronze fittings, cleats, thru-hulls etc., substantial spars, and thick hand-laid-up fiberglass not found in modern vessels. This boat has a large chartplotter that can also receive radar, with split screen views. Piston-drive autohelm, speedo, fathometer and anemometer are also included. The 40-HP Westerbeke has about 900 hours of use, and has been very reliable. Windlass and plow anchor included. Small wood stove is built-in for extending your sailing season.

The foresail is a genoa on a Harken Mark IV furling system. The mainsail has 2 sets of reef points, lazy jacks and a lazybag/sail cover. There are 2 Lewmar 43 at the helm and a Lewmar 16 at the cabintop. There are halyard winches on the main and mizzen masts. New in 2022 - VHF radio with AIS, CO2 detector, engine fire suppression system, battery, battery monitor, fire extinguishers, and some running rigging.

Inside you will find a dedicated nav desk, multiple storage compartments, 2 single berths and a sea berth in the salon. Forward is a generous V-berth with closets for 2. The head has a separate shower.
Galley is awartship across from nav station, and includes a generous volume of refrigeration. Gimbled 2 burner stove and oven.

Boat received fresh bottom paint and teak varnish in 2023. JD Power puts the approximate value of this boat at $28,400 for 2023. Was appraised at $26,000 before recent improvements. Asking $22,900 obo.
