"The 365 is my personal idea of what a boat should be," the late Shaw once told colleagues, referring to the Pearson 365 ketch, a 36-footer with shoal-draft keel, masthead rig and skeg-hung rudder. Shaw, who remained at Pearson until 1991 and died in 2006, said a 36-foot hull provided him with room to add luxury features rather than sacrifice them for lack of space or, worse, modify the boat's appearance to accommodate such comforts.
"At that size I can put absolutely everything in the boat that I want and not get into a this or that situation. The split rig makes shortening sail a cinch. The bulwarks make wandering around on deck more comfortable. The fully enclosed shower provides all kinds of niceties," Shaw said.
