Price JUST REDUCED... SELLER's WANT HER GONE!
The Bill Shaw designed Pearson 365 is a favorite among cruisers. Her keel stepped rig, skeg mounted rudder, and voluminous interior (with separate shower stall) provide the right ingredients for a very successful cruising boat. Sloop du Jour has been lovingly maintained by her current owners.

The Pearson 365 benefits from the materials of the day, including near impervious hand-laid-up fiberglass that ensured the hull and deck were rugged enough to withstand the elements. The keel is well-ballasted with 7,300 pounds of lead, a material most marine surveyors agree is far superior to iron. The skeg-hung rudder pairs nicely with the shallow keel for maneuverability.
Thanks to the shape and thickness of the hull, owners contend the yacht could easily withstand a minor impact. A solid bulkhead separates the cabin from the engine area aft, providing noise reduction and a measure of safety. The P365 hull is solid fiberglass and built with a liner that provides some insulation but can complicate hull repairs and make it more difficult to find leaks. The deck, coachroof and hatches are a sandwich of balsa between fiberglass. The hull-to-deck joints have raised some concerns because screws rather than bolts were used to make the connection. The tabbing is glassed over for additional strength.
Sloop du Jour sleeps six in main saloon and V-berth.
Vessel walkthrough begins forward in V-berth with a privacy door, opening hatch with screen, hanging locker, storage areas and reading lights; next aft is the head with a separate shower stall to starboard and opening port and opposite to port is a large hanging locker plus additional storage above; next aft is the main saloon with a settle to port that converts to double berth and starboard settee with a sea berth above - the bulkhead stored dinette table is to starboard, opening hatches with screens for vetilation and windows that provide ample lights; next aft to port is the U-shaped galley and the large navigation station with a pull out seat opposite to starboard.
