Air draft of GH 47

Can someone please let me know the air draft/bridge clearance of the GH 47? Thanks.

Hello Pirate Dan,
The air draft of the GH47 varies by boat. Some have fly bridges, some have different davits mounted high to store the dinghy above the cockpit and some have a collection of antennas and railings.
Since there are only nine GH47s built, it is puzzling. I own GH47 - hull 1 named Seven Tenths (that is for sale). We had a 30" railing on the roof that we cut down to bring our air draft to 16.6", to allow us to cruise Lake Champlain and through downtown Chicago.
Which boat are you looking at - I might can give you an answer for that boat.

Curtis Stokes has one listed on his brokerage site. It's reported to be 16' 6". I know that boat did the loop.

That's the one!! I'll stand down now.....

Thanks. I thought the air draft had to be under 16' to do the Erie Canal.

The east end of the Erie canal and the Oswego canal is clear to 21 feet. I did that route this summer with an air draft just a hair under 16' (antennas up) and nothing was even close to touching. The western half of the Erie canal is only good to 15' 6".

15'6" is what I thought. Thanks. Are there any GH 47's that can clear that?

My GH37 has the same basic (molded) structure as the GH47 except for another 10' stuck in the middle. I have no flybridge or added roof features. My davit arm is supposed to lift off (not light). With that gone, I should clear 15' 1".
