Love it... one of the posts which did not include the Captains own make / model (hope I am not assuming too much with Northern Spy )

So if the question were asked more to the tune of the three (or four or five) recreational trawlers 30'-40' (loosely defined as we know on this Board) that DID NOT INCLUDE your current or prior boat, how would you answer?

Oh yeah, this is all idle time killing with no purpose other than amusement.

Nobody did, but it would be near the top of my list, as would Pilgrim.

I found the OP's rejoinder witty. No one forces anyone to read or respond to a forum post. We choose to "waste" our time here.

Grand Banks/Eastbay
Tollycraft

Very close behind these are:

Nordhavn
Hatteras
Krogen
Nordic Tug
Rozema
Sunfjord
Delta

My boat is a long bit different then say Art's boat. Both well built, both cruisers but different. You really need to define the mission requirements to refine the answer.

I have yet been able to walk away from the dock and not look back, but I bet y'all do that.

My "mission" so to speak is to cruise the Loop next year. (I'm retired, former USMC jet mechanic and current furniture builder.) Kids have graduated college and married. No wife, just an old Lab and a shop full of equipment. I'm looking for the proverbial "house with good bones"...a pedigree that needs some equity. I've spent a lifetime around boats, just never any trawlers. (There aren't Trawlers on the 3 Rivers.)

Take a look at a Monk 36, fiberglass decks, we love ours. A bunch have done the loop plus coastal cruising and the Bahamas. Quite a few owners are full time liveaboard cuisers.

My "mission" is to do the loop and great thought went into the boat selection, the Pilgrim was designed with the loop in mind. 3.5' draft with hinged mast to clear bridges to very slippery hull giving 5+ mpg, bow thruster and easy to lock side decks.

Designed for a couple with a convertible salon for the once in a while other couple as guests not a bunch of wasted space on sleeping areas. Nice open or enclosed aft deck for relaxing out of the sun with a sunny boat deck and FB up top with lots of room for solar panels.

The use intended does matter a bit when looking, and the fun sure is in the looking.

Good luck and best regards in your quest.


These are some of the reasons we chose as we did. However speed aint in the mix as we go 7mph as a rule with 8.5 as flat out.

Greetings,
Mr. NS. I don't know about Nabisco. They tend to get soggy in milk. Lego? Seems the only crew I've ever seen on those vessels are little people. REALLY little people. Playtex? Ahh....no. Wouldn't want to be associated with vessels famous for carrying boobs. Guilty by association ya know...

How can one rank the best if they haven't owned, operated, or maintained them. Every model has their advantages, disadvantages, querks, and issues. The key is to love the one your with, so when you decide to make a step up, you can sell yours. As far as I'm concerned, I own the best model at this time.

Hard to answer the question. A little web searching proves it's a hard especially between 30-40ft. I am assuming it should be a modern boat built within 10 years or still in production? If your talking about old boats then it's another story.
<edit> sorry I see you said "last 30 years". never-mind. <\edit>

Under 40'

Great Harbor N37
NORDHAVN 40
Ranger 31
AMERICAN TUG 365
HELMSMAN 37 SEDAN
Beneteau Swift 34

Here's a list 40-50ft I found:

Cherubini 45

Coastal Craft 4500 IPS

Defever 48

Grand Banks 46 Classic

Kadey Krogen 42

Mainship 43

Nordhavn 46

Ocean Alexander 45 Classic

Sabreline 47

Selene 47 Ocean Trawler


Then there are the so called "pocket trawlers" which I think if I were doing the loop would be nice to have.
Nordic Tugs 26
Ranger 29 or 27
Ranger 25SCRosborough RF-246

Anyway, fun topic and got me looking at what's out there.

My mistake. Add Willard to that list.

When me thinks of a fine "Trawler", water tight doors, a clear site line from the helm, good fuel consumption, and most important, and a fine women who owns a bar in every port I enter.
Did I miss anything?
