- "Trawler prepared to sail."
- ―An Imperial Trawler captain
Utility trawlers were unarmed aquatic repulsorcraft designed and utilized for fishing and aquaculture harvesting, and generally had one pilot. They were equipped with powerful loading arms for deploying and retrieving fishing nets and were capable of hauling immense loads of fish, algae, kelp, or krill in their open hulls. Though simple and utilitarian in appearance, they varied widely from culture to culture, from the boxy design favored by the Rebel Alliance to the smooth yellow curves of the Naboo. The Wookiees, Gungans, Trade Federation, Galactic Empire, Galactic Republic, and the Confederacy of Independent Systems all had their own versions of the utility crawler. The 222 fishing trawler was an example of a common utility trawler, and many were acquired for use at the city of Bartyn's Landing.
