We love an honest review! The folks at Motor Boat and Yachting have produced a great onboard video review of Beneteau’s NEW Swift Trawler 47. Nick Burnham spends 24 hours living aboard and cruising off the coast of Spain.

This review will give you an excellent idea of what life aboard the NEW Swift Trawler 47 is really like – we have to say, it’s pretty great! The review is just under 15 minutes, the sea trial starts at around 4 minutes and the walk-through at around 8 minutes. Enjoy!

What Nick loves

What Nick loves

  • The ease – “It’s one of those boats that just seems to sail itself, really.”
  • The space – “When you walk around this boat it feels big and comfortable; it’s proper mini motor yacht stuff not just a cabin cruiser.”
  • The deep comfortable cabin seats with a convenient USB charger.
  • Master cabin – he had a great night’s sleep.
  • Great shower – as good as his one at home.
  • Fuel economy – “very cheap boating” – 6 litres per hour cruising at 6 knots.
  • Cruises comfortably whether at 20 knots or 8 knots.
  • Top speed of 27 knots can get you to your destination fast when needed.
  • Thoughtful exterior and interior features.
