I am biased, but a Pearson 10M is great solid boat....

If you want any type of performance, the Pearson 10M will spank the the other boats that you mentioned except the Catalina 34. But I think the Catalina 34 is a better cruising live aboard boat. You'll pay more for Catalina 34.

I have a Pearson 10M in the Boston area. It's a solid boat and is approved for Off-shore races, such as the Marion to Bermuda race. Things I like about it. Easy to sail, stiff, points great, quick (relative) solidily built. It is roomy inside (11 foot beam). Thinks I don't like about it. Shallow bilge, limited usable cockpit size, limited inside storage.


If you liked my advice/response, give me some rep points. If you didn't......well what do you expect, it was free.
