Swift Trawler 48 Release 2022!

18 December 2021 | Beneteau

Safe, elegant and functional, the newest Trawler in the Beneteau range draws on the continuing success of the design. With over 1000 owners worldwide, the Swift Trawler range has proven popular with boaties across the globe.

This 48ft model is here to impress with a comfortable spacious layout and an economical 600nm cruising range.

This mid-range passage maker is strikingly stylish, alluding to its older sibling the Grand Trawler 62 with stainless framed teak slat fashion plates and clean, robust lines.St48 exterior HIG 0001.JPG 1900px

The semi planning hull and flared bow makes for a comfortable ride in all weather and maximised efficiency on long term passages.

This Trawler is comfortable and economic, reflecting the designs’ philosophy of introspection and redundancy at sea.
She carries 1930l fuel, which allows for a range of +600nm at 9 knots displacement speed or 280nm at 18 knots efficient planing speed whilst retaining a fuel reserve of 10%. Combined with 640L of fresh water, passengers can enjoy long journeys in comfort.

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. There is always plentiful “reserve power” available to take the boat beyond 20 knots should the need arise.

The ST 48 delivers equally with living space. Fantastic indoor-outdoor flow is delivered with a large L shaped portside aft galley and generous deck spaces. The galley is well equipped with a full height fridge freezer and overhead lockers.ST48 layout maindeck.jpg 1900px

The flybridge floor is 20 sqm, with forwards facing seating for comfort underway and a wet bar. There is the option of a Flybridge T-top with an inserted sliding soft top.

There is excellent visibility at both helm stations. All controls are made easy with an aft docking camera, integrated joystick and Beneteau Ship Control.
Practical features like an overhead handrail and a double gated transom enhance safety whilst moving about at sea.

The interior is beautifully finished to BENETEAU quality with the option of teak or oak joinery. Corian benchtops, plush upholstery and large windows add to the elegant feel, accompanied by a 23 bottle wine chiller and a 40 inch TV, the Swift trawler 48 is truly designed for cruising in comfort.

Downstairs, the accommodation is well thought out. The forward owners cabin features a double berth that lifts up to reveal plentiful stowage underneath. Clever storage in overhead lockers combined with large hull windows and portlights give the cabins a light, spacious feeling.
This boat can sleep eight with ease across three cabins and the saloon dinette, which easily converts into a double bed with wrap around privacy curtains.

Comfortable long-range cruising has never been easier in this elegant and safe design. Get in touch with our team to find out more!
