9-12 knot cruise trawler 26-32'?

Are there any trawlers or "semi-trawler" style boats in the 26-32' range that have a 9+ knot cruising speed? With a flybridge/command bridge.

Unless you're looking at catamarans, 10 knots in that size range will almost have you on plane or plowing a mountain or water in front of you. In that size range 10 to 14 knots should have you on plane, depending on hull shape.

Nordic Tugs 32 but as mentioned fuel consumption is higher. Maybe 8-10 gph at 12-15 kts vs <4 gph at 7-8 kts

The Camano 31 will do 12 kts and burn somewhere in the 8 gph range with its Volvo 200 hp engine. But that is pushing that engine a little hard.

10-12kts is kinda a bad spot for most boats that size. Just over hull speed, lots of fuel, big wake.

Some Lobster boat hulls like a Bruno 35 do nice at 15-17kts.

My 38 I either run 7.7 or kick it up to 16-20. It runs ok in between, but burn rate drops once fully on plane about 16+. Never run around 12 unless offshore and it is rough and then it might like it.

OK, let me modify it to 9-12 knots cruise speed. As much as I enjoy cruising along at slower speeds, 6-7 knots just ain't gonna cut it.

A Ranger Tug 31 would fit those specs.

.

Yup....7-8 is more reasonable in this size range. My boat (and fuel burn) is not comfortable over that...

If 7kts "won't cut it", I think you need realistically asses whether 9kts will. Many boats will cruise at 8. I run between 7-10kts , depending on tides. I can't percieve the difference between 7kts and 10kts on the open water.

It will, but the wall of water a Ranger pushes at speed is really atrocious.

Fair enough.

Near as I can figure, my American Tug can plane while going down the back side of a big wave, unit, I hit the trough then, it gets really messy. WINK

Most semi-displacement boat 'can' go faster than hull speed but at what fuel cost?
Anything over hull speed is generally for an emergency or racing the tide at an inlet or perhaps racing to the last available docking space?

Force: What's your budget? That will play a big role in what's available. I remember you asked about the Camano 31 a few weeks ago

A full planing boat will do 9-12 knots gracefully and economically too.
Weight is the elephant in the room.

Under $100K.

The Camano is still on my list of consideration, my research since then seems to imply that 7-8kn is a more realistic cruising speed of the Camano. I honestly have no idea about the realities of any of it, though. I know the only way I'm going to figure things out is to start climbing aboard various boats, looking at them, talking with owners, etc.

Can we include planing boats that look like trawlers then?

The first boat is a Halvorsen 32' Gourmet cruiser and will cruise 9-10 knots all day. The second photo is a friend's Island Gysy 32' and I think it will do the same or better. (I hope he joins in with info on this subject.)

No flybridge on that Halvorsen. Nice-looking boat, though.
