Swift TrawlerThe new Swift Trawler 47 is as distinctive as ever and she is the ideal boat for boating with family and friends. With greater room, cruising range and power, the latest member of this legendary Beneteau range proudly boasts its ambition to take you further faster, while offering unique freedom and an incredible feeling of space. Elegant and affordable, the Swift Trawler 47 will make a debut on the international boating scene at the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival.

The Swift Trawler 47 is the ideal boat for travelling together with the family, or very comfortably as a couple. She has all the characteristics of a long-distance cruiser and is simple to use. The result of a collaboration between Beneteau Power and Andreani Design, she is the latest addition to a range that has been tirelessly cruising rivers and seas across the world for 15 years. Both cruising and at anchor, everything is designed to simplify life on board and to enjoy every minute.

JUST LIKE HOME

With three cabins and a sofabed, the Swift Trawler 47 can provide up to eight very comfortable berths. With an en-suite shower and independent head, the large owner cabin has the makings of a private suite. To port, the guest cabin has twin berths that can be cleverly combined into one, as well as a shower room for guests. A third modular cabin to starboard is perfect for children or can be used as a storage room.

Canadian Yachting magazine expects to get a first-hand look at this new yacht at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show in October.
