I do not own a Pearson 10M, but I do own a Pearson 30 and I have a freind with a 10M in my marina. The original owner of my 30 sailed it from Massachussettes to Annapolis (offshore) every other year. The only upgrades from the factory he made are extra glass in the bilge where the keep and hull come togeather and extra glass on the bulkhead and hull joints. The 10M is built the same way the 30 is. I would feel comfortable taking my 30 to Bermuda. I would obviously be conservative with the weather.
After seeing the 10M I started to get boat envy. Both models sail very well and are pretty fast (for thier day). The 10M has more room down below and a slightly larger cockpit.
Give it a serious look. I think you will be pleased.
