The Great Harbour GH47 was born from the success of the GH37 and is designed for those who want even greater living space and more home-like comfort. Not only does the GH47 provide an unheard of amount of space in its 47-feet, but it uses that space in many creative ways. There is no other trawler on the market in this size range that so perfectly answers the needs of full-time liveaboards.

Like all Great Harbour Trawlers, the GH47's first priority is safety. It begins with an unsinkable hull, made possible by the use of a buoyant core material in the decks, superstructure and hull area above the rub rail. If the unthinkable happens, the vessel is designed to remain afloat until help arrives or until the crew can safely transfer to a life raft.

Below the rub rail, the solid fiberglass construction is heavy and robust - designed to withstand severe impacts including an inadvertent grounding. The dual props are protected by twin keels, which will allow the boat to be dried out on her own bottom. Unlike so many other full displacement trawlers, the GH47 is powered by twin diesels, which add a huge margin of safety and reliability, especially when cruising far from boat yards or civilization.

Available with an optional flying bridge, the GH47 makes incredible use of vertical space. Starting at the top, the flying bridge includes an aft deck area accessed via exterior centerline steps that lead from the pilothouse deck level. There's built-in seating, a centerline helm and a full electronics console. Owners may elect to add a barbecue grille, wet bar and refrigerator/ice maker. A large RIB can be stowed on the aft boat deck.

The upper level features a dedicated pilothouse where the crew will gather during passages. Its helm area and nav station have been inspired by commercial bridges of commercial vessels, and the Great Harbour captain will appreciate the thought that has gone into the design of the electronics console as well as the ample space allocated for using and stowing paper charts and cruising guides.

A raised settee and table can be converted to an extra-long double berth. Aft of the settee is a spacious watch cabin complete with day head and double berth. This cabin is ideal for treating visiting guests to their own private cabin with an incredible view of their surroundings.

Taking full advantage of the vessel's wide beam, the spacious main saloon can be arranged in a variety of ways. Built-in seating for 6 to 8, end tables, a widescreen entertainment center, bookshelves and a hi-lo dining table are all beautifully finished with rich, wood detailing that is in warm contrast to the off-white bulkhead surfaces. Large, opening windows provide excellent light and visibility. and when weather permits, plenty of fresh air.

Moving forward is the signature Great Harbour galley, which is more likely to be called a kitchen. Fully equipped with home-size appliances, an abundance of storage and counter space and a cheery, airy atmosphere, it will have the most ardent landlubbers dreaming about life as a full time liveaboard.

Across from the galley is the owner's choice of a dinette for 6 or a machinery utility room. The engine room has standing headroom and offers easy access to all sides of both engines as well as all machinery and systems. A seawater chest eliminates all but one through-hull for added safety and peace of mind.

A guest/study with a settee/berth is to port, and a huge guest head with a homestyle bath is to starboard. Some owners have outfitted the guest/study as a fully equipped office.

Forward is the grand master stateroom with a queen island berth, three large hanging lockers (or closets), and beautifully built-in dressers and bookshelves. A master head is complete with a generously sized stall shower.

Overall, there is an amazing amount of space in the GH47, probably more than in most 60-65 foot yachts. Thanks to our skilled workers and our factory-direct sales, our owners can work closely with us in customizing their Great Harbour to fit their personal needs and taste.

The GH47 's standard tankage provides a safe range of 3500 nautical miles at its cruising speed of 8.25 knots. By installing a watermaker, one of the 350-gallon water tanks can be converted to carry fuel, increasing the range to well over 4,000 miles. Add to this impressive range a naturally stable hull form and shallow draft, and the GH47 can take its owners virtually anywhere with all the comforts of home.
