Your terminology is rather confusing. Are these naval ships or civilian? I ask because on one hand you call them coasters (Small civilian multi purpose freighters), but on the other they have PT numbers.
Further, even if they are civilian, none of them are coasters, since there's no such thing as a container or tanker coaster.
Small container ships are called feeder ship, and tankers aren't categorized by size, but by cargo type. (Unless you're carrying crude)
In this case it would either be called a bunker ship or a product tanker.

Also, they don't have enough range. Today, no one builds freighters incapable of crossing the Atlantic.

Anyway, you'd do well to smoothen out the prop area, since what you have now is one big drag trap.
The bulbous bow you've used is, as far as I know, only used on fast ships like the big containerships. A more standard one will be more efficient for a 15 knot ship.

oke the name coaster could be wrong. In all they are millitairy ships but operated with civilian crews (like the RFA). The ships are actual real ship plans (from a turkish shipyard), so the bulb should be oke for this ship. I think i will drop the ''tanker'' vessel because i didnt like it myself. I designed them to support the smaller missions like mine couter & Law Enforcement missions in european waters.
