I don't think it is particularly pedantic when you are describing your boat to entities like, say, the aforementioned bridge tender (and his fellow tenders everywhere) or SAR personnel, especially when you are in an area where a lot of real trawlers operate. I like the use of "trawler style" power boat or pleasure boat.
