2002-2006 34' Mainship Cruising speed

Hi all,

Just enrolled in the forum and pleased to be here.

Am currently looking on Yachtworld at 34' Mainship flybridge trawlers- those with single 370HP Yanmar engine.

My question is what is the fast cruising speed of these boats? (Some of the ads show 13 knots; 1 showed up to 18 knots.)

I realize that this is a big boat of over 20,000 lbs.

I currently own a 27' Ranger tug with a 180HP Yanmar engine that I cruise at 14-15 knots. While I really would like a larger boat, I do not want to go slower cruising than this). (At my age, displacement speed is not an option).
