Is there any such animal as a duel-helmed, 3 or 4 cabin trawler that does over 9kts?
Maybe, if what you want is something that goes over the "hull" or economical speed of a "trawler" is not the right name for what you are looking for but rather a "cruiser," which is what quite a lot of people on TF own. Price-wise, you are in the middle of the worst possible time to buy a boat in the class you are thinking of.
