I have no clue how it compares cost-wise or performance wise with the AT or Nordic, but it was a pretty cool boat. They're full-time cruisers, and the accommodations (galley, salon, sleeping quarters) were really nice.

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.

There's a lot of boats I would rather have like a Krogan 52 or a Nordhavn 63 but for boats in the 35 to 40 foot size range, the Helmsman 38 is hard to beat. It is just not well known yet.

Pricing for N-37 vs an AT37 ain't that different, of these listings are typical:

2005 Great Harbour N37 Flybridge - Mirage Power Boat For Sale -

2001 American Tug Pilothouse Power Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

Sure, different coasts, markets, etc but if I had my druthers and this kind of $$ I think I'd take the N-37
