Another great design feature of the two bathroom H38E is engine room access. The H38 offers two separate ER access entry...

A shift from the norm

Many people know that we designed a custom salon interior on the boat for one important reason - to build a boat that supports how we planned to use her 90% of the time. I call this the 90% rule and...

Unfortunately not much to report as we wait for a lucky buyer to take ownership of our H38E. Our boating budget doesn't allow for us to start building a new boat until our H38 sells. In the mean...

Stabilization

Having owned two FD N40's one with Trac and one with Westmar stabilzers, time cruising aboard a N46 without stabilzers I would vote stabilzers are a must have for these hull designs. That being said...

N475

The N475 is the new stretched N43 (same beam). It should be a great boat with longer aft deck and salon. At $1.2M its alot of money for its size. You may want to explore a used N43.
