Annual insurance will be determined by where you keep and use the boat, your boating experience, the coverage you buy and maybe even your claim history. On the Great Lakes, it might be $1000/yr whereas in Florida it might be $3000/yr and both those numbers are wild guesses.

Great Harbour boats are only made with twins. In general, there is no need for stabilizers on the GH37 and I am unaware of any that have them. You might want to go to the Great Harbour web site and read the Trawler Truths under "Great Design". Of course, if you have a big enough check book, they might build you anything.

Thank for the insurance numbers.

I'm a frequent visitor of the Mirage website and have read most everything on their site. I stumbled across a forum where this person was describing a GH 37 with a single and stabilizers. I will try to find it and post the link.

I am skeptical of that claim but you might send a PM to kraftee who used to work for them and knows just about everything about the Great Harbours.

Hopefully I will be at Trawlerfest Bay Bridge and plan to attend (my work seems to have control of my schedule) the workshop taught by Ken Fickett. I'll ask him to confirm.

Here is the paragraph....

"Dinner tonight was on Liberty’s veranda. Salmon (what else), baked potatoe and salad. Wine (of course) as well as strawberry shortcake for desert. In attendance were the Mate and Skipper, Patty and Marshall from Sgt. Jiggs and Robin and Norm, owners a Great Harbor 37 docked across from us. Robin is still on active duty as a Marine Corps Colonel, Norm having retired a number of years ago.

Their Great Harbor 37 is built on the same hull as the N37, the difference being the house. It is litteraly as big as a house inside. This particular boat is unique in the sense that instead of having twin engines it has a single and is fitted with active stabilizers. There are only two GH37’s built with this particular configuration."

Velocity,
I have a GH47 so my insurance is not helpful to you. Two GH37 owners have told me their insurance ranges from $1900/yr to $2500/yr. A lot depends on where you home port it, where you plan to cruise and what deductible you want.

Your best answer on a GH with a single engine would be to ask Ken Fickett at Mirage. With the hull shape, I would not want stabilizers, and except in extreme beam weather you would not need it. We got into a storm this summer in the Georgian Bay - heavy rain and gale force wind, with gusts of 62mph. The storm had me turn the nose into the wind until the brunt had moves past. The hull is 16' beam, so stabilizer fins would extend the beam to 18' when stowed which could be a challenge finding a slip.

How do you think the GH37 would have handled those conditions? The 47's are pretty heavy.

Velocity,
I have to smile at your question...we were following a GH37. We have been doing the Loop with them. They handled the weather just fine. We lost sight of them for a bit due to the rain.

Ken Fickett's boat buying course:
Buy Great Harbours! 😆

Just kidding. Ken is a good dude. I met him and his wife when I was looking at a GH, and they seemed like good, down to earth people.

I should clarify.....

Boat Buyer’s Survival Guide With Jay Benford, Ken Fickett & Dylan Bailey.

I've spoken with him a few times, very friendly. Visited the factory once.

Velocityvr1,
I am curious - what was Ken's answer about a GH37 with single engines and stabilizers?

I do agree a Great Harbour Area is Needed.
As Senior Mod in another forum, I know it's not that difficult and in time becomes very active once it catches on.

Be nice if Ken just dedicated a portion of his site to a forum setting or even the GHTA set one up with a member and guest area. Guest could be a moderated section as well.

Just Sayen. ....
Every One have a wonderful and Safe 2017
Jim...... Just waiting on our turn.

Fish Catcher Jim,
If it is not hard to setup, and you are a moderator in another section, why is it not setup? I am surprised there have been 3500 views to this thread.
hjd

GHTA web site does have a forum section but on Trawler forum, there are a lot more folks participating

Hang in there, Great Harbourists! There's help on the horizon!

And how about you Helmsmen? We're coming for you, too.

We'll soon have a section for each line of Trawlers.
