Jim: Thanks for asking those questions about the apparent positioning of GH and their future. The new N-37 build is some positive news indeed. I've had the privilege of being aboard all the GH models, and upon arrival in Green Cove Springs, I was sure that the GH-series was what fitted the needs of my Admiral and I the best. After Eric's tour, it was evident that for us, the jewel was really the N-series. For sure, the GH-series had more living space, but when you see that engine room and cavernous bosons locker of the N-series, it solves so many other issues of cruising and living aboard that a dedicated salon does not. The N-series pilothouse is big, full of light, and cube--wise is probably about the same as my Manatee salon. The drop-down TV over the helm area was ideal for our kind of salon usage, which is kicking back on the couch or settee for a movie. In structure and layout, the boat is what we want for HOW we use a boat. There's at least one former Manatee owner who is now in a GH, which kind-of confirms the preferences for space and economy. The real plus is that my Admiral would have another stateroom in which to make her shoe closet!
