The displacement cabin cruisers like the Nordhavn have incorporated a number of hull features from commercial fishing boats, some of which could have been trawlers but could also have been seiners, crabbers, gillnetters, or combination boats.

Nice collection of photos, by the way.

Oh God, yes. We are locked in marketing hype battles with Airbus all the time. Airbus actually is much better at it than we are. This is not an aviation forum so I'm not going to get into the details but for the most part it's about how we spin numbers. It's not that the numbers are being made up--- they're not---but it's how the numbers are presented.

Cabin interiors is another area where marketing plays a huge competitive role as far as our commercial products are concerned.

As to formats, we use them all. I'm involved in the video production aspect of our marketing efforts, but we use print, interactive media, computer generated imagery and animation, still photography, graphic design, trade magazine ads, our own publications that are distributed to our customers, and live presentations, many of which are supported by visuals (video, photos, CGI, PowerPoint, etc.)

Wonder how the term liner crossed over from ships to planes...guess it was because they both followed routes or otherwise known as "lines".....

Or was it just a natural evolution of language for us stupid, lazy a**es...

Ocean liner, airliner. Your question of the origin of "liner" as used to describe passenger ships is a good one. I don't know the answer but it would be a nice thing to find out.

I really can't think of a better place to ask for opinions. I have owned Boomarang several years now, and for some reason, I still have trouble determining what to call her. Mostly, it depends on who is asking, but rest assured, almost everyone asks what she is. Mostly, I just call her a "motorboat" or "pleasure boat". I have heard it said that Willards and Fales are "pocket trawlers" but that sounds like pure marketing hype. I suppose the term "diesel cruiser" would be pretty accurate.

What would you, my friends and fellow boaters suggest?

Call it whatever you think will do the best job of describing it to people who don't know anything about your boat, and use a term or a phrase that you think will give them an accurate idea of what your boat does and is used for.

Or put a photo of your boat on your phone and simply show it to them. Then you don't have to say anything.

I, on the other hand, have an ego very much attached to the trawler term. I set out to buy a trawler-cat, and if I couldn't do that, I'd get a trawler, so I ended up with this one in my Avatar. I keep a trawler net ready on the upper deck rail which is ready to dispatch at a moments notice, This feature addresses some of the arguments for trawler qualification. Additionally, I've removed my genset from the hatch under the galley and formed a fish hold where I keep a minimum of one fish all the time, also addressing some of the arguments. I could trawl anytime.....and I keep a stack of lead weights on the dock to also add weight if need be to resolve that issue. If any of you say I don't have a trawler, I'll just don't know how I'd deal with that.

Marin,

Actually, after a few drinks, I use the term "yacht" to describe it to people who have never seen it, and are never likely to . . . . .

I'm thinking the new classification for my boat will be "Coastal Explorer".

Nordhavn chose "Coastal Pilot". You could use that.

It's true, Marty. Not only does Don have more hills, there's a Bob Evans biscuit and sausage gravy dispenser in every gas station and convenience store.

The Original poster asked the simple question.

" What makes a boat a trawler ".

I clumsily attempted to answer the question by referring to a type of vessel which works to catch sea food and is generally f d and usually slow through the water.

That is to paraphrase an answer for T Dunn.

But Lordy bless everyone if the post and answers did not degenerate into a discussion about whose boat is or is not a trawler and the hundreds of reasons for or against.

It seems the anchor / twins question is not the catalyst for fisty debate but simply asking a question is.

We are an amazing species, with so much to share good heartedly with our fellow mankind.

T Dunns question was succinct and to the point but the answer is always most difficult.

I am sure T Dunn found a gem in all this chaff to satisfy his curiosity and cure him of ever asking another question as simply as that one.

I hope no one ever asks why the sky is blue. lmao But I know the answer to that one so I wont be asking it.

Regards.

David.
