Lobster Boat

Maybe it's me, what am I missing? In what universe is this a lobster boat?

This is the boat you use to go and buy your lobster when living on a 300 feet yacht

No, this is the boat the hotel staff on your 100m yacht use to go to the fish market.

Maybe the shape of the bow?

Looks like an interesting boat for warm water boating. I was surprised at the interior cabin space and the rib storage under the sundeck.

Way out of my budget, but I like it!

I thought the description of flared bow and deep vee at the transom was a sure sign that the article has some questionable wording.

Looks like a lollypop.
One thing I like about the type is the clean and innovative way many of them deal w the anchor issue. Get’s rid of the bow pulpit.

It's in the same world wherein 99% of the boats represented on this forum are trawlers.

Good point but I would propose that most boats on this forum are close to a trawler than that boat is to a lobster boat!

I think it's called a lobster boat because that's the color your hide will be
after a few days in the open cockpit!

Perhaps it's the large sun beds on the bow and stern for the tired lobstermen to take a break on.

Or maybe for the fresh lobster to get some tan before going to the pan

I would propose not. By a lot.

Let's consider the boat in question.

Bluff bow.
Fast
Similar sheerline
Mostly open



And in comparing our various boats here is an actual trawler for reference.

The word "Trawler" has been misused and very popular for a number of years. Guess maybe it's time to misuse some other boating words.

I would like to hear the definition which covers a true lobster boat and can also cover this rich mans toy.

I guess this depends where you are.
The boats below are lobster boats from Nova Scotia and hardly look like the pimp boat shown in the first post.

Bear in mind that they’re referring to sweet Italian lobsters of the double breasted variety.
Boats like that are very effective at harvesting them.

Oh I see, the ones you catch with leather shows and wallet bait

Even if I had the extra money for that boat, it would never make the list of boats I would buy.

Lou, pay attention to the sheerline, the deck plan and hull form. I've spent a lot of time up in all of the Maritimes and there isn't much basic difference between the fundamentals of the boats up there vs Maine. Versus, say your boat (or my old Hatteras ) and the trawler in my picture?

I always thought Georges got it right when he named the email list "Trawlers and Trawlering". Most of the subject matter on this forum falls into the latter.
