What kind of ship is a trawler?
Trawlers are a very distinct type of powerboat, designed for long-distance cruising and in many cases, living aboard for significant stretches of time. The origin of trawlers can be traced back to commercial fishing trawler boats.
What’s the difference between a trawler and a yacht?
We learned from them that trawler style boats are made for longer passages (larger fuel and water tanks), living aboard and offer good living and storage space. Motor Yachts are similar to trawlers but typically they have 2 engines and a planing hull, so they aren’t as fuel efficient or economical.
What are the advantages of a trawler?
Trawlers with their wide, full-displacement boat hulls mean roomier, more luxurious living spaces, extra headroom, smoother rides, greater stability and accessibility. They slip under bridges and navigate well in shallow water. They’re easy to maneuver and extremely versatile.
