Pearson 365 vs. tayana 37...decision making?

Hey Yall!

Looking at these two boats, there are a lot a pros and cons for each. I'm trying to decide whether to go bigger and more expensive with the Tayana 37, or cheaper (I wouldn't need a loan) and older with the Pearson...

I plan on spending the next 1.5-2 years outfitting before going offshore. The Tayana would lock me down for a longer time but seems a lot more comfortable both at see and anchor. Any insight into this is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Jon,

Both boats look nice. I am in the same situation as you, regarding choosing my next boat.
The Tayana is certainly made for the open water, and is built fairly strong and heavy. The engine has a fair amount of hours on it compared to the other boat. Tankage is a factor, with the Tayana holding the edge for water. A possible area of concern might be the iron fuel tank on the Tayana. If it hasn't been replaced or repaired, it will probably need it done before you set off.
I am a big fan of the Tayanas, but that Pearson is a nice looking boat.

Good luck, Bill
