NEW BENETEAU SWIFT TRAWLER 48

The newest release from Beneteau is the new Swift Trawler 48.  Appropriately in the 45+ foot passage maker category, this mid-range boat has a strikingly stylish profile that features the new stainless framed teak slat fashion plates – aligned with those seen on the new Grand Trawler 62 flagship.

To enjoy the sea with confidence the Swift Trawler 48 is rated for 12 persons in CE Category B. The hull has been designed to optimize sea-kindly behaviour and performance. The slender flared bow of the Swift Trawler 48 cuts through the sea wonderfully resulting inefficient fuel consumption and safe handling. 

With 1930 litres of fuel onboard you can expect a range of +600nm at 9 knots displacement speed or 280nm at 18 knots efficient planing speed whilst retaining a fuel reserve of 10%. This in combination with 640 litres of freshwater allows for considerable autonomy away from the dock. While Swift Trawler DNA is focused on comfortable & economic cruising – the standard pair of Cummins QSB 6.7 litre 380hp engines allows a top speed of 21 knots with the upgrade 425hp engines giving a top speed of 25 knots. So there is always plentiful “reserve power” available to take the boat beyond 20 knots should the need arise. 

Entering through the patio doors there is a large L-shaped galley on portside aft with a full-height 255-litre fridge freezer and large overhead lockers outboard. Forward of the galley is a large raised U-shaped dinette providing plentiful seating for up to eight with great views all around and in social proximity to the helm. The aft end of the seat has space for a 23 bottle wine chiller. On the portside dashtop, the large storage unit can house a 40” TV.

In the lower accommodation, the forward owner’s cabin features a double berth that lifts up to reveal plentiful storage underneath. The en-suite bathroom includes a separate shower cubicle with a teak slatted seat. The port guest cabin benefits from a large hull window with an inset portlight, stowage, wardrobe and two single berths with an infill to make up a double berth. Note this cabin also features an en-suite door to the portside day head – in which you will also find a separate shower cubicle with a teak slatted seat. The starboard guest cabin has two portlights, a transverse double berth and a double door wardrobe that is large enough to take an optional washer/dryer in the base.

The Swift Trawler 48 is spacious, comfortable, innovative and practical, making it the ideal boat for family cruises and sharing wonderful trips to sea to explore.
