The Beneteau Swift Trawler 50 knocked our socks off when we first stepped aboard at the Annapolis Boat Show back in 2014. We’re psyched to see that the brand has brought out a model that will fit our dock (and wallet).
Beneteau unveiled the Swift Trawler 30 at the Paris Boat Show, which just opened its doors this weekend. The new Swift Trawler 30 represents Beneteau’s continuing quest to define the trawler as it should be. Since its launch in 2003, the Swift Trawler line has established itself as a reference in the long-distance cruiser.
With the latest born in the range, Beneteau manages to fit the same concept within 31 feet and five inches of hull length, with a respectable range of 200 nm, and a cruising speed of 14 knots. All for a base price under $300,000. Beneteau fully expects sales to soar into the following season once the boat enters the production line of the US plant located in Marion, SC.
