Beneteau Swift Trawler 35Following the success of the Swift Trawler 34, which dominated the long cruise segment for nearly 8 years, Beneteau is shortly to announce the launch of its successor, the Swift Trawler 35. This new boat is stylishly modern with valuable new spaces indoors and she gives you an incredible feeling of safety on board. The ingenious long distance cruiser is due to make a debut in nautical circles at the upcoming Southampton and Annapolis boat shows.

Built on a semi-planing flared hull, developed with Beneteau Powerboat’s expertise, the Swift Trawler 35 has a Cummins 425 hp engine. Protected either by a soft top or a Bimini, the flybridge emphasises the boat’s harmonious profile yet marks her distinctive long cruise temperament. Broad walkways, lots of hand rails and high pushpits – higher than regulations require – reveal the importance attached to safety on board. With regard to visibility, the Swift Trawler 35’s wheelhouse has a 360° view and is bathed with natural light.

For optimum comfort whatever the weather, the Swift Trawler 35 has opted for a modular exterior. Continuing to the far end of the starboard gangway, the awning closing off the cockpit unfolds quickly and easily from the flybridge structure. The exterior blind of the side door overlooking the gangway shuts off this space, providing privacy. The emphasis on protection is repeated on the flybridge with the semi-hard Bimini or soft top with built-in LEDs. The soft top’s stainless steel arch features the elegant Beneteau signature mark and can be used to support antennas and flags.

As the Swift Trawler 35 is designed for long cruises, safety and autonomy come first. This is why she has two large water tanks, each with a capacity of 400 litres, and two grey water tanks. Providing twin tanks mean that she handles flawlessly.

Ingenious, elegant and reassuringly safe, the Swift Trawler 35 promises to be a sure value in a range that has inspired many a long distance cruise, since it was launched in 2003.
