What ocean crossing trawler fits onto a trailer?
 
I am looking for a boat under 12' wide that I can trailer during a storm. Trying to find a spot to haul out for a storm with my last boat was a nightmare, an expensive nightmare. So what is under 12' wide that can cross oceans? I could do 14' but would be nightmare when a storm is coming.
thanks

I think the problem is the tank volume. Charles Lindberg crossed the atlantic in his plane having only a seat and a sandwich. The rest of the plane was fuel tanks.
If you want to cross an ocean with a trailarable 12 wide boat you would end up like him.

Yup - a Diesel Duck! It would be my choice too.

It will cross oceans in a shipping container.

At a beam of 13'1 the LRC 58 is one of the most efficient boats you can buy.

Not any diesel duck, that particular one.
Look at the specs

Surely any narrow beam power boat would roll its guts out at any provocation?

Oh very much a Duck....not every Duck needs to be 4.2m in beam. Perhaps you haven't seen the 10 & 2? My Dad delivered several from the Turk builders.

It would take a big trailer.

These objectives appear to be diametrically opposed. Are you going to the carry the trailer with you on ocean passages? My boat is 14' 4" I don't have any issues getting it hauled. Yes, some 25 ton travel lifts are too narrow, but that is a very small minority.

Yep, but it does specifically say...........

. She had to be fairly light weight so she could be loaded on a crude trailer and portaged, but long enough to have enough WL to move and be fuel efficient, as well as be comfortable to spend time on.

She looks like the boats of old. Narrow beam and driven with little HP. She probably has an exquisite mahogany interior.

Unless fitted with stabilizers.
Take your choice of paravanes, active fins, gyroscope, rolling chocks/bilge keels, steadying sails, flume tanks. Plenty of ways to deal with it.

Some pictures at https://willardboats.org/

Willard 36 is 12-feet beam. But it's a full keel displacement boat and is pretty dang heavy.

LOA: 36-feet
Beam: 12-feet
Draft: 3.5-feet
Displacement: 25,000 lbs
Ballast: 6000 lbs
Fuel Tankage: 500g (Trawler) 300g (Pilothouse)
Engine: Varied, mostly 85hp Perkins 4.236
Range: up to 2500 miles @ 6kts

Would not be my first choice for ocean-crossing, but some have made the trip from California to Hawaii and back.
