There were a couple of things that I thought the NP had over the HM. I find the NP more pleasant to look at. The floor plan of the NP was more to my liking. The NP comes fully loaded with everything that you need to go cruising. Trevor did deal on the price. It was important for the trawler to separate all of the areas. The helm is in the pilot house. The dinner and saline have their own places. The galley is separate from the Solon. The Solon is central to everything. I didnít go on the Helmsman but the fit and finish looks comparable. Thatís about it. Good luck Jim.
