Alberg 37 or Cape Dory 36

In the 1960''s there was a fad of what were called ''weekenders''. Weekenders used the hulls from coastal cruisers of the era but instead of a trunk and doghouse cabin, they had cuddy cabins with a vee-berth, head and perhaps a seaswing stove. The space saved by shortening the cabin gave them nice long cockpits.

In the Pearson line up there was an Electra which was a coastal cruiser and an Ensign which was the weekender. The Arial which was a coastal cruiser and an Commander which was the weekender. Both the Arial and the Commander were available with either an inboard Atomic 4 or an outboard well.
