Swift Trawler 50

Naval Architect: Beneteau Power – Michel Joubert and Bernard Nivelt
Interior Design: P. Frutschi
Hull Development: TLB Architecture

Key features:

  • Powerful, responsive and safe cruiser
  • Easy handling with hull designed for IPS engines
  • Revolutionary new exterior with fluid flybridge
  • Large flybridge lounge with folding table
  • Superb interior space and light
  • Living space optimised for hull length

The Swift Trawler 50 is the flagship of the range. A long distance motor yacht for the cruising couple who love their home comforts and enjoy entertaining guests.

Beneteau has resigned this traditional classic trawler for comfort, luxury and safety for blue water adventures.

Driving from the redesigned flybridge is exhilarating with great visibility from the elevated platform. Thanks to the IPS pod drives, the Swift 50 accelerates easily and cuts through choppy water with no rise.

Easy Entertaining

Easy Entertaining

Entertaining is easy on the flybridge thanks to an outdoor galley with worktop, sink and optional fridge and grill. The wraparound lounge area is centred around a large sliding, folding table and the helm and observer can easily join the party from their swivel seats.

An innovative service hatch under the seating connects to a dumbwaiter in the galley so it makes dining on the top deck super easy. The built in spotlights and speakers and subtle lighting from the LEDs in the bimini create a gorgeous ambience. The large flybridge also has enough room to store a tender with an optional hydraulic crane.

If you find the perfect swimming spot, the hydraulic swim platform with swim ladder allows easy access to the water. Forward, a tilting sun lounger provides a relaxing spot to curl up with your favourite book and sunbathe.

Elegant Interior

The Swift 50 interior is cleverly designed for practical living and easy entertaining in style. The elegant interior has a contemporary feel with high gloss varnish finishes on mahogany woodwork. Layout options include three staterooms and two bathrooms with large double cabins or two double cabins with office and extra berth.

Enter the saloon through the large sliding glass doors and experience high ceilings and huge opening windows on both sides offering plenty of light and space.

There is an L-shaped saloon bench seat and a folding table that can be used as an occasional table. Widen it out for dinner or fold it away to convert the seating into a double berth for occasional overnight guests.

There is ample storage with large closets and a vanity or desk. The ensuite is split with a separate shower including sink and toilet with sink.

Choose between a guest room with double bunks and laundry area with fitted washing machine and tumble dryer. Or an office with extra storage. Forward in the VIP stateroom, guests will feel right at home with the high headroom of 6ft 7 inches.

Australian Boating Review

Australian Boating Review

Australian Boating has released a special report on Beneteau’s new Swift Trawler range. Here’s what they have to say about the Swift Trawler 50:

“Imagine owning a luxurious cruiser of this size, performance and capability. This is a trawler yacht capable of cruising over to Lord Howe Island, back up through the Great Barrier Reef via Lady Musgrave Island, and on to the Whitsundays, Townsville, Cairns… or straight over to Darwin. Truly, the Swift Trawler 50 will do all this and more in extraordinary comfort and convenience and yes, economy … The Swift Trawler 50 is now one-of-a-kind, and will forever remain as a very solid investment in a lifestyle most people can only imagine.”

The Beneteau Swift 50 comes standard with two staterooms, but also has a third space that can be made into a third guest cabin with Pullman-style beds or an office with a large desk and elevated berth. An unusual feature is the dumbwaiter, which makes moving food and drink between the flybridge and the galley much easier. High bulwarks, broad walkways and railings make access to the bow lounging area easy and safe.
