Re: Sailboat or trawler?

Our 54ft non-duck manages 6-6.5 knots in calm seas averaging just one gallon of diesel per hour. That's 7mpg.

Like I wrote, motorsailers stink at both.

Re: Sailboat or trawler ???

Re: Sailboat or trawler ???

The OP has been warned, now I would suggest the OP go see for himself prior to purchase. I've been on many trawlers, catamarans and of course our monohull in many anchorages.
