I had 'assumed' it would be strong enough for the size of the boat as a matter of course.

Hmmm... back to the classifieds...!
I think the pearson 37 would be perfect for a first livaboard and some coastal cruising but evidently not built to cross the atlantic and it 'appears' that they were never brought to the UK. Shame.
BTW Bill Shaw designed his boats for specific purposes. Look at the 365/7 and 385/6 for more bluewater-oriented boats in your size range. Should be similar price range, many available on east coast.
