The Smart Trawler 50 is a full displacement motor cruiser based on successful traditional North Atlantic working craft hulls.  It is designed for unrestricted ocean use and extended offshore cruising.  The vessel is built to ABS and Lloyds scantlings with a steel hull construction and aluminum superstructure.  It meets applicable ABYC standards.  The Smart Trawler 50 provides sea kindliness, handling ease, easy maintenance and operational economy.

Hard chines and a substantial keel minimize roll and a bulbous bow reduces pitching and improves fuel efficiency.  Two longitudinal fuel tanks keep the weight low while minimizing free surface effect providing a more comfortable and stable ride.  Optional stabilizers can be added.  

The vessel is subdivided in four compartments by three water tight transverse bulkheads; a collision bulkhead isolates the forepeak, a bulkhead with a water tight door separates the lower accommodation area from the engine room, and a bulkhead with a water tight door isolates the lazarette.

The vessel is powered by a 360 bhp, Series 60 Detroit Diesel with a ZF 350-A reduction gear.  The engine is electronically controlled and meets even the strictest California emissions standards while extending a high level of fuel economy.  The vessel’s hydraulic system is driven off the main engine gearbox and powers the bow thruster and windlass and provides two additional hydraulic ports for equipment such as davits and stabilizers.  All equipment and hardware were selected to be tough, reliable and readily available. 

The engine room is large and well laid out with easy access to all equipment and systems.  The pilot house is spacious and provides all round visibility.  Weather tight Dutch doors in the pilot house further improved visibility during docking maneuvers as well as providing excellent ventilation.  The wide walk-around decks are uncluttered and well protected.  Safety is a foremost design consideration.

The boat is heavily insulated throughout for thermal as well as acoustic benefits.  There is an aluminum deck head in the engine room and a second deck under the salon/galley.  This provides a dead air space and heavy insulation between the machinery and accommodation areas which mitigates noise and provides fire protection equivalent to that found on commercial passenger vessels. 

Bulwarks are plated inboard as well as outboard which gives a clean profile and eliminates high maintenance stanchions and framing.  All windows and exterior doors are coast guard approved for offshore applications.

Interior partitions are constructed of 1" x 2" steel supports and sheathed with marine grade plywood and high quality laminates.  Cabinets and interior joinery are constructed from indigenous hardwoods and have a natural finish.
