I can't see such a boat run with just a captain and occasional day workers. Unpractical for a whole bunch of reason like the time and energy wasted trying to find competent day workers or temporary crew in various places, making sure they know what they re doing and know the boat, etc... Will end up costing more in money and aggravation than at least one qualified mate. I doubt you will find a captain will to run a boat that size without a crew. A common mistake many people make is to buy a boat based on requirements for long term plans they may not ever do. A 110' expedition trawler with an 8.5 draft is pretty much the wrong boat to cruise teh east coast and the bahamas. The draft alone will prevent you from visiting at least 75% of anchorages and marinas between Long Island sound and the Turks n Caicos. Another issue is boat layout. Expedition trawlers are designed and layed out to handle rough conditions with high freeboard, sheltered decks, etc which are not necessarily adapted to normal conditions especially in the bahamas and caribbean A somewhat simplistic analogy would be to buy a big military grade hummer because one day you may want to go off reading somewhere and use it first for years as a daily driver in a big city. Will it work, yes... Is it ideal... No!
