We went trawler hunting at Milan Yachting Week – The digital boat show where you find dozens of boats of all sizes moored in the virtual harbor. Why did we choose trawlers? Because these boats are having renewed unexpected success in the world. The merit of this type of boat, born for fishing and long sailing on the high seas, is that they are a perfect example of environmentally friendly as well as very comfortable boats.
Environmentally friendly because they consume little fuel and can sail at low speeds due to the displacement hull. Comfortable because they are the ones that come closest as exterior and interior arrangements to real seaside houses. Last, the design has been updated making them also pleasing in appearance. In short, we could approximate them as a concept to automotive SUVs. Here are the eight trawlers we scouted at Milan Yachting Week – The digital boat show. There are all sizes and for all budgets. Essential or luxurious. Your choice.

Nearly 14 meters: Linssen 450 AC
In northern Europe, boats use them much more than in the Mediterranean as beach houses. One of the best examples of a Nordic trwaler is the Linssen 450 AC Variotop (m. 13.75 x 4.65), a true Nordic-style motoryacht in which the cockpit is transformed, thanks to a simple transparent closure, into a veranda for all-weather use. In fact, the Variotop line is distinguished by an elevated driving position that can be protected by the soft top if needed or projected outdoors in good weather. But don’t think that Linssen 450 AC Variotop is not also a boat for sailing, thanks to its ideal size, with the new Linssen 450 AC Variotop it is possible to make all kinds of sea voyages comfortably and without stress.

19 meters: Beneteau Grand Trawler 62
You’d better click right now on the brand new Grand Trawler 62 world premiere at our digital boat show and enjoy the present future of boating. What have those geniuses at Beneteau, the world’s largest French shipyard, done? They relied on two Italians, Massimo Gino of Nauta Yachts and Amedeo Migali of MICAD, asking them to make something they had never seen before, with one goal: to realize A boat of just over 18 meters that was beautiful and as big as a seaside villa and as safe and efficient as a long-distance boat. And to make it beautiful, too. The boat is 18.95 long and an impressive 5.45 meters wide. Due to this unusual width, space automatically increases compared to a boat of the same size. But space increases even more because the “foreground,” or Flybridge, is no longer just a place to steer the boat with a small sofa/sundeck. It is a huge covered terrace, an outdoor but sheltered lounge. And when it comes to range and fuel consumption, the Beneteau Grand Trawler 62 has 900 miles of range and reduces fuel consumption because it does not make speed its strong point. Its ingenious hullin factallows it to sail even at low speeds (12/15 knots) at maximum hydrodynamic efficiency.
