What is a Trawler Lifestyle?
It’s a sailor’s cruising lifestyle in a motor yacht. Trawlers are full-displacement boats that are economical enough and with enough range to make long-ocean passages. If you are ready to experience a trip on a recreational vessel reminiscent of a workboat above the waterline and want to cruise at a slow speed, then trawlers are for you!
What Makes a Trawler Different From Other Motor Yachts?
A trawler has the sea-worthiness ability and the range to reach remote anchorages, provide extended accommodations, and be able to carry, launch, and retrieve a tender. A trawler can be also a functional boat
Trawler Boat Features:
Trawler Boats are a type of motor yacht or powerboat with a design similar to small commercial fishing boats. Trawler Boats are designed for long-distance cruising at an average speed of 10 to 15 knots with top speeds in the low to the mid-20-knot range. Owners of large trawler or expedition yachts want a vessel with enough fuel efficiency to take them on trips to remote ocean areas.
Trawler Boat Construction and Hull Design:
Trawler boats come with a full-displacement, ballasted hull with fiberglass construction. Large trawlers and expedition yachts over 75 feet in length are built with steel aluminum hulls, while classic trawlers were built out of wood. They are seaworthy vessels built for long-ocean passages. They come with all the comfort features to make you feel at home and provide a sailor cruising experience.
Trawler Boat Details:
Trawlers are powered with single engines for long-distance cruising; several also have a second engine or generator to help owners if the single engine fails.
