Pearson vs. Catalina

Catalinas long suit has always been a lot of boat for the dollar with build quality taking a pretty obvious backseat to space and cost control. Catalinas do sail reasonably well and offer a lot of room down below. They make good coastal cruisers.

Pearsons generally were a better constructed product than the Catalinas, albeit more expensive and generally a little more cramped. Of course there are a whole lot of other choices in that size and price range that were better made and and many offer better sailing abilities as well.
