What trawler brand names are most often seen in the Bahamas and Caribbean?

I'm not sure there is one. As far as power boats go, it's all over the place. In the Bahamas you'll see smaller power boats because of the proximity to FL.

Because of its distance from the US and Europe the Eastern Caribbean is different from the Bahamas. Excluding local boats, the trawler cruising boats are primarily Krogens and Nordhavns. There is a Virgin Islands based Nordic Tug 42 which comes down to the Windwards each year. I have no familiarity with the different brands of sport fishing boats but there are a number of these which show up for tournaments.

And draft constraints limit the cruising options for larger boats.
