Not trawler based yet, but I have 2 very comfortable options I use for the camper or sailboat.
My favorite (w/ ottoman) is: Brown Club Chair - Mac Sports C932S-100 - Folding Chairs - Camping World
For the boat:

I have spent many days lounging in both including a 7 hour delivery on the bean bag, and both with be on the trawler.

BJ's has an aluminum frame folding recliner beach chair with a padded headrest for $40 in their stores. It was a little short for me, but I'm too tall (6' 3") so when you recline in it, my feet stick out from the ankles on. Looked and felt solid, and fairly light weight, folds flat. If anyone is interested, I'll get a photo and ordering #.

Folding chairs sold by Costco for maybe $25-30 are actually pretty comfortable. Most have a little folding side table/drink holder and are made of Aluminum. They stow in the lazerette on our GB 32.

The best thing about the StrongBack chairs is the lower lumbar support. Most of those sling and fabric director's chairs leave a hollow space where I need support. StrongBack works well for me, but they're heavier than your typical folding chair. The chair comes with a sling bag that has shoulder straps that help if hoofing it with a chair in hand.
My boat is my ark. It's my mobile treehouse and my floating fishing cabin. It's my retreat and my respite. Everyday I thank God I have a boat! -Al
