Oh, that's just a "wannabe" flybridge. Right Marin?

If I wasn't afraid of heights, I'd be atop the mast as was Crowe's character.

A trawler will usually have a rounded bottom for sea worthy and sea kindly ride in rough going.

A flat bottom or V will usually signify a boat that can be made to plane with immense power , a motor yacht.

Not for rough water for very far.

I think the terms were liberally used by the marketing departments, our IG aft cabin was sold as a 'Motor Yacht' in the promotional blurb, that came with the boat when we bought her.

I find it amusing that people get so hung up on names/titles. Almost as funny as the guy who swears by a corporate brand so much he identifies with it (eg. "Friends don't let friends drive Fords", the die-hard Apple user, or my ex-bro-in-law who would say "If it's not Coors I'm not drinkin' it"). Oh, the power of advertising and marketing...

Whether or not it's a trawler or motoryacht, she's a fine looking BOAT!

The Titanic was a ship not a boat.

And FF most trawlers have hard chines. And chines have almost nothing to do w seaworthyness.

How true. I recall ads for OB Sea Dories as the "trailerable trawlers".

Arthur DeFever said our boat is the DeFever 48 LRC Motor Yacht, good enough for me. I'd say your's is a motor yacht.

Amusing that the "Trawler Forum" can't agree on the definition of a trawler. As stated previously, motoryacht is a deckhouse configuration. It could be a subset of trawler as evidenced by thousands of aft cabin boats built in Taiwan and Singapore that fit the schtick. And that's all there is to the trawler grouping of small pleasure cruisers...an image...an idea...marketing. The subject boat has elements of that classic Taiwan/GB utilitarian shippy look...and the look is all that defines the segment.

Thank you all. As always, lots of information and opinion but usefull. I decided to remove the word "Trawler" from my profile and just enjoy my "Boat". After all, thats what it is all about.

Not necessarily. American Marine used the name Motoryacht as their branding name for all their tri-cabin Grand Banks boats with full-width aft cabins. However this configuration also falls under the general definition of "sundeck."

And I believe other manufactures applied the term "motoryacht" to models without full-width aft cabins or with no aft cabins at all.

I would guess you could consider it a trawler if you basically use it as a trawler. We are on a powercat trawler. I guess we call it a trawler ever though it has large engines and can go fast, but being ex sailors we are perfectly happy going 7-8 knots or in the trawler "range" of speed. Hey, what do I know? But, anyhow, it is a very nice looking boat you have. TonyL

Definitely a fine looking boat whatever it is. I think Mr. Hargrave turned out some very nice looking boats. He penned all of the Prairies, which is what that really is. And also the Hatteras he does are very classy looking boats. I think "handsome" would be a good word to describe Hargrave designed boats!!!

And as far as trawlers go....I kinda agree with Marin. A "real " trawler is something used in commercial fishing. BUT, if we apply Eric's definition, We have a shrimp boat here in Galveston Bay that I have seen up on plane cruising in the upper teens!!!....quite a sight!

And I am about to buy a Carver....ACMY....
