Pros: Strong well built boat. Easy single hander.
Cons: Large Cockpit needs more drains. Factory portlights need replacing.

New Update Below - 10/22/06

First Entry, 9/96:
The Pearson 367 (aka P36) is the Cutter version of the 365 Ketch. It has a lead encapsulated modified fin keel (7,100lbs.) with a heavy skeg hung rudder, draws 5.6 feet (one foot deeper then the 365), displaces 17,700 lbs, carries 150 gals. of water in three FRP tanks, 50 gals. of fuel in one aluminum tank and has a 44hp Universal diesel with a water cooled Vee Drive. Only 49 - P367s were built. The boat is a capable offshore boat with ample space for living aboard. One probelm is the plastic Beckson Portlights. They are of weak construction and are held in place with 1/4" long self tapping screws, scewed into the fiberglass inner hull liner. I have replaced them with New Found Metals stainless steel portlights that are through bolted. The other weak point on the boat is the anchor platform. I have replaced it with a 'real' bow platform which required moving the forestay forward and adding a bobstay. So far I am very satisfied with the boat and have plans for a South Pacific voyage in the future. If you would like further information feel free to contact me via e-mail at [email protected]. I would very much like to hear from other Pearson 367 owners to compare notes/experiences.

Update 3/3/00: My boat, "FarAway" has been performing well and I am very pleased with her. I have been through a 16 hour gale with her in February of '99. Winds were gusting from 40 to 50 on the Straight of Juan de Fuca and I was single-handing at the time. FarAway handled well, held up great and came through without any problems. I have since met two other owners of P367s. One was on his was south to San Diego out of Alaska. The other had just flown back from China after spending the last 7 years sailing the South Pacific. It was great to meet someone who had taken the P367 on such an extensive cruise. Hope to hear from/meet some other Pearson 367 or 365 owners in the future.

Update 11/19/02
The Vee Drive died and was rebuilt. Installed a IsoTemp Hot Water Heater, a Hurricane Diesel Hot Water Heater with an Everhot Tank. Replaced deck teak handrails with custom built stainless handrails. Installed a Prosine 2000 watt inverter/charger with a 560 amp AGM main battery bank along with a Link 10 and Pathmaker.
Had a NN-10 nesting sailing dingy built and mounted under the boom. Changed the main sheet traveler to a Lewmar adjustable recirculating bearing car and changed the main sheet to a two speed Gaurhaur fiddle block arrangement with a 4:1 and 8:1 purchase (made a big difference in sailing the boat). Replaced the original bronze propellor shaft with a new stainless shaft. Also added a PSS dripless shaft seal.


Rebuilt the Hurth transmission and repaced the five above waterline plactic through hulls with bronze. Installed a new Martec 3 blade feathering stainless prop. The boat is still holding up well and is proving to be an exceptionally strong boat. I have not had one blister during my six years of ownership. The previous owner had applied an epoxy barrier coat.


Had Tartarooga Dodgers of Sidney, B.C. build a new hardtop dodger for my boat. I highly recommend Tartarooga Dodgers. Will be putting up a new rig this winter using HiMod Terminals and DyForm wire. Re-plumbed the entire boat and added a custom made ships computer. Also had all the saloon cushions re-made with latex foam and a new v-berth mattress made with latex foam with a memory foam pillow top. Very happy with the outcome of both. Many other projects have been completed as well. Still very much interested in talking with other 367 owners.


Had a new custom radar arch/stern rail built and a new stainless bowsprit/anchor platform and mounted a Monitor Windvane.
Added two cockpit drains, a new binicle guard, rebuilt the compass and added new intrument pod with new Raytheon Instruments.
Boat stil holding up extremely well after 10 years living aboard.


Went through a very extensive refit last summer and am currently sailing south for Mexico/Central America. My Pearson 367 is still performing great and all of the work I have put into her is really paying off. I couldn't give the 367 any higher praise. If you want and excellent cruising boat that is tough as nails and sails well, buy a 367.
