Any Novatec Owners here?

Good-day all! I know they aren't "exactly" trawlers, but Novatec does have a line of "Islander" yachts that are considered "fast trawlers". I was hoping to gather some experienced information on them (particularly the 2000-2004 48/55 model). With just about everything onboard that's on our list of "must haves", these boats strike me as something worth looking into.
If anyone has any stories, experiences or the like regarding these models, please let me know. I would like to know a couple of things, if you had your choice to change anything on your model, what would it be? As a diverse boat that can be a slow trawler as well as having the ability to run the bank account down, what is your average 6-10 knot GPH? Is it still around the trawler consumption of about 5-8 gph (conditions considered)? Appreciate any and all feedback, I really like the looks of these boats, in and out.
