Wish us luck!

After 6 years aboard our trusty NT32 we are moving on.
We have been looking for a Great Harbour N37 for awhile now.
After speaking at length with the Manufacturer and their great family members we decided this might suit all our future needs. Gunk holing and passage making as needed.
As recovering sailors we are really enjoying the trawler life.
We did visit the N37 in florida that had been hurricane damaged and rebuilt and of which has been the topic of much discussion and drama on this forum.
We spent 4 hours onboard and decided it was not for us at this time. Could elaborate. But not now.
But OMG! Thanks to Carol's being on top of her online search alarms. We found one just on the market and we have her under contract.
Going to see this weekend. If all goes well. We have the task of a 2000+mile delivery on her own bottom.
Wish us luck. Be in touch.

The N37 is a great boat. Hope the survey meets your expectations. It should be a fun trip down the ICW.

Very cool. I love the wide beam on the GH's. Is it stabilized too?

Yes - that beam provides CAVERNOUS storage and spaces for living aboard.

Photos of engine room and 16ft x 5ft bosun's locker (we call it the basement).

The wide beam and very hard chines provide a LOT of stability (think 16ft beam jon boat) - no stabilizers needed under 95% of conditions (we stay in port the other 5% of the time ).

Photo of hull underwater.

Good luck on the Survey and purchase. I am impressed with the design of the N37. Looks like a wonderful boat. You should enjoy it.
