Can't help but comment on this one. The N-37 has the most amazing stand-up engine room in addition to a nearly 16 ft. beam. I love the features of this boat, but it comes at a cost of $$$ and some degree of performance. It's 2'10" draft is riverboat like and the cost of such a huge engine room is a very square transom. Twin 56 HP diesels with twin skegs help it rest easily on its bottom. It has a amidships full-beam boson locker below the pilothouse that has enough space for full sized washer and dryer if one wanted it. Can't beat the room. At 37 ft., it's solid glass hull is nearly twice the weight of my 36 KK Manatee. Space and storage is awesome. Big buck pricing have them languishing on Yachtworld for long stretches though.
