Lifestyle & Use

"Trawlers" have grown to become a popular segment of the US power boat market because they are designed to offer a set of features appealing to many serious power cruisers. Not blazingly speedy, they favor economy, long-range and seaworthiness instead. Accommodations tend to be roomy and comfortable and anticipate extended time aboard. The lines and interior design lean toward timeless, traditional aesthetics. Safety and secure operation are paramount. In short, these are boats that appeal as much to the head as to the heart. The Helmsman Trawlers 31 Camano embodies all these characteristics in an exceptionally well-built package. Interior accommodations are remarkably large and comfortable for a boat in this size range. Handling and visibility from the helm are unequalled. The bridge deck and flybridge exceed any comparable boats and further enhance pleasure while cruising. And the craftsmanship from Helmsman Trawlers is extraordinary. Everything about this boat shows it to be a bantam version of a fine trawler yacht. Propulsion is the remarkably smooth and quiet Hyundai SeasAll S270 V-6 diesel in a special 240 ho continuous duty version -- a perfectly-matched powerplant.

Details & Close Up

There are so many extra features and it's the hidden details throughout this boat that prove it to be a quality fast cruiser. Attention to detail including the quality stainless steel deck gear, welded oversized handrails, aluminum-framed opening windows and stainless steel opening portlights, and the extensive use of solid teak and teak veneers throughout gives this boat a quality, proper "little ship" feel with sturdy, solid performance. Joinery is top-notch. Ingenious drop-down galley cabinets keep the salon interior roomy, uncluttered and open. Ceiling panels are easily removable for access to wiring. Wireways are provided. Sound insulation around the engineroom is very effective. Each deck hatch has gas stays which help support the hinges and prevent the hatch from slamming shut.
