Speed. Isn’t that the point of owning a fast trawler? Other trawlers may deliver that speed through shear brute force, but a Swift Trawler achieves its pace though the perfect marriage of brains and brawn. The end result is speed that’s a joy and oh so easy to live with.
The Swift Trawler’s tight, responsive semi-planing hull designed by Joubert & Nivelt can knife through just about any swell and has a turning radius more akin to a speed boat than a trawler. Just open the throttle and the Swift Trawler comes alive.
There’s an old engineering axiom: weight is the enemy of speed. This is why Beneteau designers and engineers consider only the lightest, yet strongest materials in the construction of the Swift Trawler. This no-compromise standard means less bulk and more knots without sacrificing the safety or comfort of those on board – all the way up to 26 knots aboard the ST52.
Now to the heart of the matter – the engine. While other trawlers cram the largest lump possible into the hull, the engineers at Beneteau know this always causes more problems that it solves. That’s why the hull of each Swift Trawler is designed to work in harmony with its power plant to deliver maximum performance without sacrificing the other necessities you expect aboard a trawler – like comfort and durability.
