Why don't 'they' make long narrow trailerable boats?
It's not a question of stability or seakeeping or performance, it's because nobody would buy them. Side by side not one American in a million would pick the skinny boat, especially if his wife and kids had anything to say about it.

Things are different elsewhere.
Narrow boats for sale, Canal boats for sale, narrowboats
