Between the standard 3,000 watt inverter, the large standard battery bank, and the alternators on the diesels, you can run the appliances indefinitely underway. Keep in mind that the Energy Star home appliances actually draw very little amperage. Now, if you want to run the 240v cooktop underway, you will either need the optional twin inverter setup or you have to start the generator.

Eric said it all. However, I'll add that another benefit to these household appliances is they can can be worked on almost everywhere and have parts very commonly available at local service centers e.g. Our 23 cuft sideby side Sears Kenmore Fridgefreezer combo with icemaker and filtered water. Thus replaces three separate marine specific items.

Hello Velocityvr1 I took a good look at the boat in Jax (GH37) earlier this week. She is in great condition and well cared for by her original owners. We decided however that we like the N37 better we looked at. The Jax boat although not as well equipped as Easy is a whole bunch less expensive. Worth a look if you are really interested in the GH37.

Is blistering a common problem with the Mirage trawlers?

Two of the three Great Harbor boats I looked at had blisters. One was a GH and the other was an N37. One of the GH did not have any. Not a big sample but some data for you.

Not to hyjack the thread here, but the Lang you've got pictured there in your Avatar is a sweet looking 32! Looking at GH's, you must be wanting to expand in EVERY way!

The fact that GH's have such big appliances is pretty hard to miss. Since our cruising plan has us anchored out quite a bit, we wondered about the amp draw. I imagined I would change-out the huge fridge for something like we have now, but after my Admiral got aboard an N-37 about two months ago, she decided different.

GH look wonderful and the full size 110 volt appliances would be nice, but since I have never had a boat with a generator, the idea of having to run a generator much of time puts me off a bit. I like quiet when sitting on the hook (or at least don't like noise competing with my soft music). I understand that modern generators and installations are much quieter than they used to be, but I have been in anchorages where boats have had there generators running most of the time and it was pretty annoying.

Dhays we have a GH47 and love the large appliances and since they are energystar rated the fridge does not draw much at anchor unless you are in and out of it frequently. We too love the quiet at anchor and with the large battery banks they put on all Great Harbour boats you get the best of both worlds!

Thanks

Good to know. They sure seem like wonderful boats.

In regards to the blistering issue. Early Great Harbours (prior to 2005) had polyester resin standard, with vinylester resin barrier coats as an extra cost option. Obviously, the only boats with blisters would be the polyester boats. As far as I know, only a few were built without the extra-cost vinylester barrier coats. Vicksburg is one of them, of course. All boats built since 2005 (and maybe somewhat earlier - I started with the company in '05) have the vinylester standard. I have never heard of any blistering on these boats. If you contact Mirage about a specific early boat, they can probably check the records and tell you whether it got the vinylester or not.

Does any one know the dimensions of the Main Salon for the GH 37 and GH 47?

Still looking for an opportunity to tour a GH.

VelocityVR,
I measured at the front wall of the salon from side to side and it is 14'1" and from the back salon wall to the front wall it measures 10'10". Our boat is a GH47.

Thank you for taking the time to measure. Amazing, we have a 14 x 10 area rug wth two recliners at one end. Nice to get a sense of the salon space. My kids are in town next weekend.

Thanks again!

Larry,
My understanding is that Ken will have a N47 at the Annapolis Power Boat Show. I am hoping he will have more information about the new trailerable trawler he is designing.
