The 365 is nice but more of a cruiser. Not designed for great performance. The ketch rig will make the boat more complicated to sail and also more expensive to maintain. I would stay with a conventional sloop rig for the first boat.

A late 80s Pearson 33 is a very nice boat. Nice interior and decent performance. Usually the same price point as the 365 ketch.
