Introduced in 2006, the Mainship 43 Trawler (called the 45 Trawler in 200809; 479 Trawler in 201012) remained the flagship of Mainships fleet until the company closed down in early 2012. As explained some years ago on the Mainship website, the semi-displacement hull permits owners to cruise with the efficiency of a traditional trawler or sprint to your destination like a modern express. That describes most of todays performance trawlersboaters love the classic trawler look, they just dont like the slow hull speed of a real displacement trawler. The two-stateroom interior of the Mainship 43/45updated in the 479 model to include a double bed in the guest cabin as well as a second headfeatures a step-down galley forward of the salon and a queen island bed in the master stateroom. A broad 15'6"" beam allows for an expansive salon, and wide side decks are secured by high bulwarks. Note the deck access door at the lower helm. On the downside, the cockpit is small and some owners have complained of a high running angle. With her 777-gallon fuel capacity, the 43/45/479 Trawler has excellent range. Cruise at 18 knots (low 20s top) with Yanmar 440hp V-drive diesels.
