I have sailed a few Pearsons in the 40' range and because of those experiences and the Pearson reputation, I purchased the one I have now. I love the boat and her sailing performance has far exceeded my expectations.
I would just like to suggest that a 32' boat is a bit small for your intended long term voyaging. Not necessarily for safety reasons, but for comfort. You have to consider that as a cruiser you will be living aboard and need space enough to stretch out comfortably in your "living room", a realistic galley and also storage space for your personal items, food and spare parts.
Not to put a damper on your plans but as a suggestion from someone who hasn't lived ashore since 1969.
