What is 'cruising speed'

When looking at ads for trawlers, I see many list 'cruising speed' and 'maximum speed'. What 'cruising speed' mean?

For example, I'm looking at 42'-43' twin engine modified hulls, not 'true' trawlers, that show 'cruising speed' of 11-13 kts. I'll spend virtually all of my time around hull speed of 8ish, so what is 'cruising'?
