and how old the rigging is...

In any case, looking at the $ online for others it appears in the ballpark. Nothing is gonna be perfect

some of the riggings new the spreaders were replaced along with some other bits rest was certified 3+ years a go so probly time for new standing rigging.

im thinking its closer to 35-40k
figure i will have to do a complete bottom job and new barrier coat will cost a lot
new parts for the broken electronics will cost a few thousand
new rigging in the next few years

still many things to look at
tanks, if its a metal fuel tank will probably have to replace it
and the base of the mast has had problems on other of the same
model with coroshion so need to look at that.

Re: Pearson 365

We bought one last year and are outfitting her for blue water cruising. I'd say if the hull and deck are sound, and your surveyor finds no surprise expensive repairs needed, don't give much value to old canvas, outdated electronics, worn out engine, figure on spending about 25-30k for the boat and about 40-50k for refit, depending on how much of the work you can do yourself and shop around for deals on gear. That is if you plan to take her anywhere fun. If you just wanna hang out in the harbor you don't need anything but a bucket and a plastic bag in case the head fails.

Re: Pearson 365

Check the mast step. Pearson 365s have a steel step and an aluminium mast, corrosion is expected in this area. There are ways to fix it and prevent it from happening again, but it is not cheap. A definite price lowering item.
Here is one discussion on the subject.:
