The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
Like the axiom says — the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. What is so wholly striking about the Pearson 36 is the size of those parts. The nice thing is that this 36 footer comes in at the performance end of the racer/cruiser spectrum.
For example, take a good look at her interior. At each end is a private, well-ventilated double stateroom where berths are 6'6" long and proportionately wide (not the "dollhouse" doubles you so often see where berths are cramped and there's no room for clothes changing). Separating these Pearson-sized private staterooms is a main cabin whose dinette can seat six, while still permitting unimpeded access to the forward cabin.
Throughout all areas is an unusual amount of out-of-sight stowage for equipment, food, bedding, and clothing.
Certainly not least of those areas where the size fits the need is the 7'6" cockpit. Its uncluttered, curved seating sets new standards for comfort. And unlike the more common T-shaped cockpits, this one gives you a cockpit long enough to sleep in under the stars.
The nice thing is, all this 36-footer comes in at the performance end of the racer/cruiser spectrum.
