I've long admired the long smooth lines of the most popular yachts, those featured most frequently here on YachtForums, but there yet remains a hint of "reverse snob appeal" in the form of the humble trawlers. Perhaps "humble" is overstating the case for I'm seeing trawlers so well-equipped, so knocked-out plush, that from a comfort standpoint I suspect they can complete with any ultra-modern design. Thus my question: in what way are trawlers superior? (If any.) I see that Nordhaven touts their seaworthiness in the roughest seas... is that true? Can a trawler travel father, best tougher seas, provide more efficient use of space -- OR WHAT? What are the practical reasons for selecting a trawler, or is it strictly personal preference? Thanks and happy cruising.
