1) Check out this site if you haven't already: http://www.p385.com/
It has email links to a bunch of current owners, who probably will be the best source of info on the boat.
2) Post this question on the Pearson email list here on Sailnet. There are several 385 owners who hang out there.
To my eye, it's one of the best looking center cockpit boats you'll find under 40 feet. Tons of room below as well. A good friend in my sailing club has owned one for years and he loves the boat. He is listed in the owners on the above link. His boat name is Irish Blessing, so email him in particular for info. He has taken the boat to NE several times, among other trips.
Disclosure -- I have owned 2 Pearsons. Currently own a P-33-2.
