The Great Harbor N37 is the best value in today's trawler market. Compare its natural sea keeping ability, attractive, spacious interior, list of standard equipment, overall livability and low operating costs, and nothing comes close. The N37 is available with an optional flying bridge - a popular choice for those spending time in the warm climates, and especially in the Bahamas where it's easier to "read" the water from up high.
Above all, she's safe, strong and able to venture virtually anywhere while providing all the comforts of home - and all at a reasonable, sensible cost. Most N37 owners are exploring coastal waterways or island hopping, but these boats have proven themselves on long ocean passages including trips to Bermuda, Hawaii and Cuba. (See Great Voyages.)
The low profile of our "N" series creates less windage, an advantage at anchor and when docking. Even the N37 flying bridge model offers a relatively sleek profile. Both of these models feature an inside helm and navigation area that is designed for comfortable passagemaking in all weather conditions.
The N37 is the ideal size for a couple with occasional guests, as it features a large owner's stateroom that takes advantage of the hull's wide beam carried forward. A queen sized, island berth is surrounded by rich, warm wood cabinets and two large hanging lockers. An overhead hatch and two opening ports ensure plenty of natural light and ventilation.
The large head features a full sized stall shower that is more likely to be found in a home than on boats of this size. As one owner said, "finally, a shower I can actually stand up and move around in."
The second stateroom is normally arranged with a settee and desk to serve as an office or den. This extra space provides full time liveaboards extra privacy, allowing a member of the crew to enjoy their favorite activity in the den while not disturbing others in the main saloon. The settee easily converts to a double berth for occasional guests.
The N37's galley never fails to generate "oohs and aahs" at boat shows because it's more like a cottage kitchen than a boat galley. Featuring full-sized, home appliances including a 23-cubic foot stainless refrigerator-freezer, an all-electric, 4-burner cooktop stove, and a stainless microwave-convection oven, it has an abundance of counter space, cabinets and drawers. The extended counter top with two bar stools is a popular place for eating meals if you don't want to sit in the saloon. You'll feel right at home in a Great Harbour "kitchen."
A combination washer/dryer is vented overboard, and there is room to add a top-loading freezer.
In the main saloon, a double navigator's seat on the port side faces forward to a large chart table. To starboard is the helm seat, steering station and panels for electronics and engine instrumentation.
The raised dinette area provides excellent visibility while seated, and it converts to a double berth when needed. The two bar stools from the galley can be brought up on occasions when dinner for six is being served. A comfortable starboard settee is the perfect place to curl up with a good book or just relax and take in the scene.
There's a big surprise waiting for you below the cabin sole. Open the hatch and step down into the huge, walk-in bosun's locker where there's room to stow enough cruising supplies for extended voyages or if you are living aboard full time.
On deck, the N37 has a protected cockpit big enough for a couple of deck chairs and small table. The standard model features a large roof area that can carry a 12-foot dinghy or a variety of watercraft such as kayaks or sailing dinghies.
Even the flying bridge model has enough space on the aft boat deck for a 12-foot RIB with engine. The bridge includes a helm with engine controls, room for electronics, and a helm chair. Two 6 1/2 foot, cushioned bench seats provide plenty of seating and extra storage room.
Wide side decks and heavy duty aluminum safety rails running the entire length of the boat make it safe and easy to move about when handling dock lines, picking up a mooring or working with the ground tackle. Deck lockers under the forward wheelhouse windows provide storage space and a convenient seating area.
A sturdy bow pulpit is complete with a dual capstan windlass and is set up to accept two anchors. The chain locker will house two 200-foot lengths of 5/16" chain.
The walk-in engine room boasts standing room at the workbench area and easy access to all mechanical equipment. Like all Great Harbours, the N37 features twin diesel engines for redundancy. (see Great Design and Trawler Truths.) There is plenty of room to install a generator and watermaker as well as stow spare parts, fluids and tools. A tour of an N37 engine room will demonstrate our approach to keeping things simple. Everything is clearly labeled, and all equipment is arranged so that it can be serviced by the owner.
With its twin diesel engines, the N37 cruises comfortably and quietly between 7.25 and 7.5 knots burning approximately 2.2 gallons per hour total. With its 500-gallon fuel capacity, this gives the standard N37 a safe range of 1,500 miles. Some owners with watermakers have had us convert one of the 150-gallon water tanks to an extra fuel tank, thus adding another 400-500 miles to the vessel's range.
The Great Harbour N37, which combines safety, liveaboard comfort, affordability and go-anywhere capability, has proven to be one of the most popular trawlers on the market. You are invited to step onboard at one of the major boat shows or visit our factory in Gainesville, Florida.
