367 as opposed to the 365 ketch or sloop
is a horse of quite a different color. The 367 has a larger skeg rudder
, deeper keel/draft, a couple feet taller mast
stepped further aft and interior
is somewhat different than the 365. The 367 should be a better sailor but not drastically better as the sail area isn't a lot larger than the 365.
The Pearson 365
was buillt as both a ketch and a sloop with more being being built with the split rig. They have fairly shallow draft
so won't be a terror to weather
and sail area/displacement ratio doesn't put them in the light air wizard realm. The sloop has a longer boom and mainsail
foot to add back some of the area lost
with the mizzen. Would assume that Bill Shaw did his homework and the sloop and ketch will still balance out.
Both the 367 and 365 are roomy cruising boats that are very well designed for that purpose. The galley
looks great, living accomodations and storage
good, really like the separate shower
in the head
. On a price
for designed use, these boats are some of the best values out there.
