Those IPS systems would scare the hell out of me unless I was on the winning side of powerball drawing.

No, the builders do not think of it as a trawler. However, it could be used as many use trawler type boats. As to the IPS the market has accepted in on many boats such as Sabre and Tiara. Sunseeker offers it on their 65' Manhattan.

The Coastal Craft is a very nice boat. I see their sales potential as very limited. However, they don't need huge sales, just one or two here and there. Being distinctive might help in that.

Spraying the hull with fresh water eliminates water spots. Besides, they won't show up in most photographs, and dark hulls show up better in fog than white ones.

Coastal Craft are quality boats,,, and very expensive, but probably worth it.
A niche market for sure. I considered one of their 40 footers a few years ago when we were immersed in the PNW. Nice boat! But that also coincided with the time when I was looking into Trawlers for the first time. Around that time, IPS was making it's presence known. I'm not a fan. So, ultimately we chose a different path. But I will always reconsider a Coastal Craft when we settle back into Vancouver.

The builders have never, to my knowledge, referred to any of their vessels as a trawler. They are a fast planing boat, in the 25-30 knot range.
I was simply showing an extremely nice boat and its launch. Beautifully and painstakingly finished. And to boot for me, locally built.

They are a semi custom to custom boat.

I don't think I would go for an IPS either. Too much wood experience but there are a lot of the C.C. out there now and people like them.
