Great Harbour Trawlers are built by Mirage Manufacturing in Gainesville, Florida. Founded in 1971 by Ken Fickett, Mirage first earned a reputation within the sailing and sportfishing industries for its performance-oriented, well-built boats.
In the late 90's, Ken decided to build a boat that could take his young family on a yearlong cruise. Although he bought plans for a 35-foot coastal cruiser, he soon realized it wouldn't fit his needs for fulltime, family cruising, so he enlisted the help of Lou Codega, a well-known naval architect, and together they developed the Great Harbour 37.
The GH37 design soon became a hit with those with similar cruising dreams, and Ken's personal plans to go cruising had to be postponed as he filled the orders for his new boats. During the past ten years, the Great Harbour line has expanded to include the original GH37 as well as a GH47, N37 and N47. Over 50 Great Harbour Trawlers have been built to date, and preliminary plans are now being made to build a magnificent Great Harbour 74.
