I agree with sloanfiske . There are many more Pearson 26 than Seafarer 26 so you will get alot of opinions on Pearsons. Might take a look at Seafarer Research Center
There are Seafarer "original" information sites, like brochures that make Seafarers sound like the best thing since sliced bread. Quote. " McCurdy and Rhodes designed and for offshore sailing". Excellent construction and very roomy inside. Excellent hull to deck joint. *I would have to see both boats that I was looking at to decide.
---Every review or comment about the -Pearson 26- says small or cramped inside- AND the rudder hardware needs replaced or to make sure you watch it for a breakdown.
---Every review/comment about Seafarer says they are roomy and well built. There is no consistent, constant negative comment about the Seafarer 26. I agree and I own a Seafarer 26 for 2 yrs.
