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