This was a great thread. I've got a contract on a Helmsman 37 Sedan for delivery around May 2023. I know most(all?) of you are on Pilothouses, but I really wanted a 2 stateroom boat with 4 foot draft or less. The tradeoffs you all mentioned were a lot of my thinking as well. I really appreciate all the conversations around options too. Helping me fill in my own list as time approaches.
Two key ones for me: I'm having a custom box up top for an extra fridge and electric grill. And I'm having the flybridge rail moved forward a little so that everything aft of the bridge deck hatch is railed off, and Scott & Co are putting a solar panel setup aft of that.
