Motorboat & Yachting - - Southampton Boat Show Preview -

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.
