coma01 is on a distinguished road
I have seen both boats and am bringing the fam down to see both boats next weekend, but here are my initial impressions:

Build and material quality seem better on the Pearson
Styling of the Pearson is more to my liking
Condition of the Hunter is pristine, less so on the Pearson
Hunter has a Yanmar with around 500 hours, Pearson has original Westerbeke
I like the enclosed quarterberth on the H, but the V-berth is a little small (I am 6'2") advantage Pearson
Both have separate shower stalls
H has better and more electronics and gear(ie pilot, reefer, plotter)
Pearson has significant money to be spent on it to get it up to the same level as the Hunter, but I believe will sell for a good deal less. Advantage Hunter

In summary, I love the Pearson for it's look and feel, but I think the Hunter is probably the better deal.

My head is with the Hunter, but my heart belongs to the Pearson
