    Except the 'test captain' in the video refers to the use of thrusters I am interested to know how easy or difficult to control these single engined trawlers are when going astern giving the substantial keel

    Thanks but that looks like a twin engined boat to me. Cool boat handling though

    Maybe but how does the helmsman turn the boat to port before reversing if he's not at the wheel?

    Yep M, that boat definitely has a single engine with separate levers.
    They also use a lever for rudder control, as explained in the following video from 3:20 onward.
    I've seen something similar on the rear helm station of some fishing boats also around here.

    It was the principle of turning in its own length I was using the video to illustrate, you can do as he was without thrusters.

    The keel gave the ST34 good directional stability when going astern, with use of thrusters it was even more of a breeze.
