10 Best Trawlers From 40 to 50 Feet

Name this trawler. Is she one of the 10 best?

Whether for doing the Great Loop or putzing up and down the US Atlantic east coast, here is a short list of trawlers. A trawler is the middle ground between sail and power, and many clients seem to transfer between the two – especially seasoned sailboaters. I have limited my list to between 40 and 50 feet with a full range of prices.

  1. Cherubini 45 Independence – Softly styled trawler, one slipped at good ol’ Roylale Palm had a romantic scooter fasted to the bridge that spoke of island hopping.
  2. Coastal Craft 4500 IPS – Little known BC make, aluminum with high tec systems and commercial quality construction, IPS drive.
  3. Defever 48 – A classic along with her little 44 sistership, popular aft cockpit arrangement optimal for cruisers.
  4. Grand Banks 46 Classic – Synonymous with trawler, GB’s are the originals with many other models like the Europa, Alaskan, Heritage to choose from.
  5. Kadey Krogen 42 – Headquartered in Florida and built in Taiwan, ideal liveaboard accommodations.
  6. Mainship 43 – Mass produced for a value conscious audience.
  7. Nordhavn 46 – Expensive but well built and equipped by Ta Shing.
  8. Ocean Alexander 45 Classic – Timeless traditional appeal, aft cabin with queen.
  9. Sabreline 47 – Good looking sharp styled, down easter by famous New England builder.
  10. Selene 47 Ocean Trawler – A Nordhavn like rugged trawler to cut the dock lines and set off for serious offshore cruising.

Feel free to comment below with additional models to consider, critiques on any of the above, or other thoughts.

    I’m part Scot and look first to GPH at what cruise with what top speed in case I am running a tide. any suggestions from that perspective.

"Dear Tom, I want to take this opportunity to thank you, and Jordan Yachts, for listing and selling our latest yacht. Our relationship has spanned over 20 years. We met you for the first time at the Newport Boat Show in the early 1990s. In 1994 you sold us a Stephens 47 cutter that we lived aboard until 1998. You personally installed a holding tank for us on the Stevens. You sold that boat in 1999 for 10k more than we paid for it. In 2003 we found a Bristol 41.1 on Yacht World located in the Sarasota, FL area and brought you in on the boat inspection, and eventual sale, because we trusted you and valued your thoughts and opinions. Because of your work, we negotiated an acceptable deal. You even helped us bring the boat from Sarasota to Ft. Lauderdale. We’ve enjoyed our time with the Bristol for 12 years and decided last December to put her on the market. We were in N Palm Beach at the time and you came up from Ft. Lauderdale to visit and to see what we had done to the boat over the years we had owned her. Last May, after our final cruise to the Bahamas, you came to our marina in SC to list and photograph our boat. The pictures and video you provided to Yacht World were critical in getting the buyers here from the Atlanta, GA area to view, and eventually purchase the boat. The coordination and support provided by Kathy at Jordan Yachts made the whole process seamless. Unfortunately, at age 76, my sailing days in “big” boats are over, but wanted to thank you and Jordan Yachts for providing expert and professional help in finding, and eventually selling for us, quality sailboats over the last 20 years." - PJ, S/V Dreamseeker 2
