The UK has been a strong market for Beneteau’s Swift Trawler range and the French giant will be hoping the new 47 continues this success. The initial renderings look promising; it is the most handsome Swift Trawler to date with very sweet proportions. The sociable flybridge has a centrally located helm station flanked by seating, with a wetbar and open deck space aft. The lower helm is also in the middle of the boat, which puts the companionway steps down the starboard side leading to a three-cabin lower deck arrangement. The VIP ensuite is up front and a twin and double guest cabin take up the space amidships sharing a bathroom between them.
A pair of Cummis 425hp engines should make for a top speed in the region of 25 knots. Beneteau will also have the Gran Turismo 50 Sportfly on show.
