    After nearly two years of search, we finally bought a trawler: 1987 Bestway Golden Star 37.

    Budget was a big factor, which pretty much meant the boat had to be older than 1990. Other criteria were minimal window leaks, headroom (at least 6' 4"), walk-around queen berth, and either single diesel with bow thruster or small twin diesels.

    We looked at two Golden Star 37s, one on the east coast and the other in Wisconsin. They both met our minimum criteria. The Wisconsin boat was in better shape, close to our home port in Gladstone Michigan and convenient for summer use before the long trip to Florida starting late September 2018.

    Hi,
    I finally closed on my boat and got her shipped up here to the NW.
    Sadly my list was mostly what was out versus in being 6'8".

    Best boats are by far the Krogens but unfortunately not the newer ones, the 48 was too low although the 48 whaleback isn't bad. The 39 and 44 also too low. The 42s are totally hit and miss, I think it all depends on the boat, some had plenty, others not so much.
    I ended up with a 54 and love her, still in the yard though getting retrofitted so very little time with her.
    Ones that were out are Nordhavn, Flemming, Selene, OA50s (MK1), Defever 50, and a few other random ones I looked at.
    Hope that helps!
