New Beneteau Swift Trawler 41 - Innovate, cruise and share

by Emilie Piron 25 Jun 2019 01:45 PDT

The eagerly awaited new Swift Trawler 41 renews the spirit of the practical seaworthy cruiser by BENETEAU. The powerboat has all the basic features of this successful range, with clever innovations giving her a fresh contemporary feel.

Modern Passagemaker

Put out to sea in confidence! The new Swift Trawler 41 is 13.30 metres long and has a beam of 4.20 metres, and is the final addition to the successful range of five long-distance cruisers by the BENETEAU boatyard. These 30 to 50 foot boats that will take you anywhere and their seaworthiness, incredible living space and comfort has won over long-distance boaters worldwide. Designed to replace the previous Swift Trawler 44, the new Swift Trawler 41 has been placed appropriately in the 40 foot passagemaker category, but the concept has been given a fresh look. A mid-range boat with a strikingly stylish and aggressive profile, she reflects the Swift Trawler line renewal perfectly, which began last year with the arrival of the Swift Trawler 47.

The Swift Trawler 41 is smaller than her elder sister, whose contemporary feel she has inherited, and as ever, she takes innovation a step further. Among some of the new ideas is the galley, which has been wisely placed aft of the wheelhouse, connecting seamlessly with the cockpit and the swim platform. With the large sliding glass door open and the bar plancha grill in place, she offers a magnificent well ventilated flush interior and exterior space for entertaining.

The clever new layout of the convertible saloon now includes a curtain that runs around the double berth, offering privacy for this comfortable sleeping space. Another new feature is the driver's seat, which easily rotates, providing seating for up to 8 people in the lounge space. Here again, there is an increased sense of space and volume.

As with the other models of the range, the driving station of the Swift Trawler 41 has a large steering wheel and a side door on the starboard walkway. The Swift Trawler 41 is ideal for a wide variety of programmes and comes in a Sedan version, preferred by boaters in rougher conditions, as well as for peaceful cruises on inland waterways. The Swift Trawler 41 also comes in a Flybridge version, so that you can enjoy the open air. The flybridge has a a wonderful panoramic view and a striking amount of space and equipment.

Blue Water Cruising!

A fearless passagemaker, the Swift Trawler 41 is truly seaworthy, which is a specific feature of long-distance cruisers. Inspired by the studies carried out on the Swift Trawler 47, her new hull has been designed to optimize behaviour and performance in both the Flybridge and Sedan versions. The slender flared bow of the Swift Trawler 41 cuts through the sea wonderfully resulting in good fuel consumption and optimal efficiency, with 5 L per nautical mile, from 10 to 23 knots. Designed for a choice of 2 x 270 hp or 2 x 300 HP engines, her 12.52-metre long planing hull reaches peak speeds of 23 knots. Her large 1,200 L fuel tanks and 400 L fresh water tanks give her a great cruising range. Averaging 16 knots on a cruise, she has a range of roughly 180 nautical miles. On top of this, the boat has been fitted with the on board Ship Control technology, for greater control. This centralizes all the technical features on board on the same display: navigation instruments, batteries, light, temperature, air-conditioning, etc. Ideal for blue water exploration and also perfect for tranquil moorings, the Swift Trawler 41 places the emphasis on a wide variety of leisure activities. Her design is practical with plenty of storage space for a wide range of leisure equipment for children and adults, such as kayaks, paddle boards and bikes.

Designed for long crossings, the Swift Trawler 41 has generous living spaces and cleverly designed fittings. Her capacity is second to none for a 40 foot boat! She is a pragmatic and cleverly designed trawler making the most of interior and exterior storage capacity with modular solutions. She is also incredibly safe thanks to protective bulwarks and a high pulpit on the foredeck. With three cabins, the Swift Trawler 41 cruiser has a capacity of up to 7 passengers on a cruise. What an accomplishment! The large double owner cabin is located in the forward peak and has two separate wet rooms: wash basin and marine toilet to port, and a shower to starboard. On the port side, the guest cabin has a modular double berth that converts to a twin birth. To starboard, there is a lazarette area with a single berth, offering a good-sized storage space and a place where a washing machine/tumble-dryer can be fitted. The living spaces are extremely modern and attractively bright with our simple décor combining warm coloured woodwork (Alpi, teak and Oak) with light-coloured linings. This warm and welcoming atmosphere can also be found outside where there are wonderful spaces to share all the fun. The cockpit places the emphasis on modularity with a sliding bench giving onto the swim platform, making movement easier and allowing you to install a table for meals. Unless, of course, you prefer the panoramic atmosphere of the flybridge, where you can enjoy a fitted galley and table seating 8 people.

The Swift Trawler 41 is spacious, comfortable, innovative and practical, making it the ideal boat for family cruises and sharing wonderful trips to sea to explore.

The Swift Trawler 41 is a perfect example of the contemporary cruiser spirit that has given the range a new lease of life. She still has all the signature features of this successful range, while enjoying the latest innovations. This new Trawler is safe, seaworthy, comfortable, and has ample living space. Available in a Flybridge or Sedan version, she has everything going for her and will definitely appeal to anyone who loves long-distance cruises or weekend trips with the family.
