American Tugs & Trawlers
The Pacific Trawlers 37 is a very capable vessel and "Haiku" is an outstanding example with upgrades including bow and stern thrusters with remote and a low hour Northern Lights generator.
Built in the Pacific Northwest for cruising in Northwest waters her stable, seaworthy hull is at home in all kinds of weather conditions and sea states. She is economical, too, sipping a mere 2 gallons per hour at eight knots. "Haiku" has more living space in her large salon and adjoining u-shaped galley than other trawlers of her size. There is plenty of storage space available for food and gear. She is a comfortable vessel for long range cruising or living aboard, yet she is simple enough to hop aboard for a quick run over to one of the islands for dinner. "Haiku" is easy to maintain with plenty of room on both sides of the engine and all of the other systems easily accessed. With fiberglass non-skid decks, high grade stainless steel fittings, and a minimal exposed woodwork, her exterior needs little more than a semi-annual wax and polishing. For the discerning cruising couple looking for a well maintained, comfortable, and sea kindly boat, "Haiku" is an excellent choice.
“Haiku’s” unique hull shape cruises comfortably and economically, burning only 2 GPH at 7.9KTs. Her sharply flared bow provides a smooth entry and rapidly increasing buoyancy in step seas, helping to keep her dry forward. Her long keel and hard chine aft make her exceptionally stable and easy to handle with minimal roll even in quartering seas. “Haiku has a bow thruster but maneuvers easily in tight quarters without using it. She responds quickly and predictably to control inputs and can turn 360 degrees in barley more than her own length.
