SWIFT TRAWLER 30
Beneteau proves you don’t have to go large to get the fun of a flybridge. Its Swift Trawler is a semi displacement hull capable of exceeding 30 mph. Its fuel capacity gives a range beyond most owners’ expectations. The easy-to-handle, compact trawler is a true voyager for a jaunt to Block Island, or even crossing from Miami to tour the Bahamas.
The boatbuilder wisely makes standard both an upper and lower station, which means a short crew, or even a single-handed skipper at the lower helm, can dock and secure the vessel at port. Also standard is a Volvo Penta D6 370 hp engine, powerful, fuel efficient, and ready for reliable long-range cruising or just weekend overnighting at a quiet anchorage.
Access to the bridge is via a ladder-way through an upper-deck hatch.
The landing below does take cockpit space, but Beneteau compensates by opening the cockpit to the salon via a large sliding door. The effect is attractive and practical, and cruisers won’t regret the trade-offs.
