Beneteau Swift Trawler 42

A builder known for its sailing vessels brings efficiency and elegance to its first trawler yacht.

Beneteau, the largest producer of recreational vessels in France and owner of a major boatbuilding plant in Marion, South Carolina, recently rolled out the Swift Trawler 42, its first trawler yacht-and the company s first powerboat to reach the U.S. market. Beneteau is already well known on these shores for its wide and highly regarded range of sailboats, so it should come as no surprise that Beneteau s entry into the U.S. power market is a strong one.

The Swift Trawler 42 makes a very positive impression. I particularly appreciated the ease of movement about the decks, possibly a carry-over from Beneteau s extensive sailboat design experience. The interior space is very well used and avoids the negative impact of squeezing too much into a space. At anchor, she will be a very livable boat for a couple and occasional guests.

Drop into any port in the world and you’ll find at least one French long-distance cruiser, typically an aluminum sailboat or Beneteau crewed by a scruffy, but handsome, guy in a Speedo and a girl who looks like she just stepped off the pages of Paris Match. The French, and Beneteau in particular, have long dominated production sailboat building. Moreover, Beneteau did more than build lots of boats, they proved that sailboats could be styled in new and exciting ways and didn’t really have to look like clones of Olin Stephen’s 1936 Dorade. The fact that this visionary boat builder is now into trawler yachts should be a wake-up call to the world’s cruising yachtsmen – it is now officially cool to own a trawler powerboat.

Charm and Elegance in a New Breed of Trawler

Beneteau, the premier sailboat manufacturer in the world and one of the top builders of motorboats in Europe, introduced a new breed of passagemaker to the North American market at the Annapolis Powerboat Show the Swift Trawler 42.

I just had to see it and find out more. So, I tracked down Wayne Burdick, President of Beneteau USA and met with him aboard the Swift 42 on the sundeck. Here s what he had to say:

There comes a time in every boaties life when the need for speed gives way to simpler and slower pursuits. Eventually, we all like to stop and smell the roses.

Why go speeding around flat out from Point A to Point B, burning plenty of fuel as you go, when you can achieve the same goal at a much more leisurely pace. Plus, in the case of the Beneteau Swift Trawler 42, it?s luxury all the way.

The Swift 42 has a timeless beauty that boaties seem to appreciate more the older they get. It has that gentlemen?s club feel about it. kinda? warm and inviting.

While Beneteau s new 42ft Swift Trawler is the perfect conveyance for the leisurely cruising couple, Trade-A-Boat also discovered that it has a deceptive turn of speed

The growing ranks of snowy-haired nomads, not the caravan-toting types but the boating breed, are fuelling heady demand for trawler-type motorboats.

Add the high price of fuel and the scores of sailors changing to power and you have exactly the kind of market that Beneteau hopes will play into the hands of its new Swift Trawler 42.
