No such thing as a fast trawler.
Boats that look like trawlers but go fast are cruisers.
If the hull is more suited to going fast it isn’t a trawler.
But there are trawlers that go somewhat over hull speed. But their hulls are better at displacement speed.
There are quite a number of boats that look so much like a real trawler they are called trawlers by most people. But their underwater hull forms resemble Carvers and Bayliners much more that trawlers.
“Fast trawlers” are simply imposters.
