Beneteau Announces New Swift Trawler 48

Designed by Andreani with clear Beneteau Trawler DNA, the brand-new Swift Trawler 48 is focused on easy living and long-range cruising. At 48 feet, 4 inches in length overall, the 48 is the largest in the Swift Trawler range.

The aft cockpit can fit a table and two folding chairs together with a large transverse bench seat that seamlessly continues the indoor/outdoor living space. The transom double gate opens onto a large swim platform with an optional hydraulic lifting system. Up top, the flybridge offers a comfortable layout, backrests on either side of the pilot seat, as well as an optional flybridge T-top with an inset sliding soft-top.

In the main salon, a large L-shaped galley is portside aft. Forward of the galley is a large raised U-shaped dinette providing plentiful seating for up to eight with great views all around.

Down below, the forward owner’s cabin reveals a comfortable double berth and 6 feet, 6 inches of headroom. A port guest cabin has two single berths that convert into a double berth, and a starboard guest cabin has a transverse double berth.

The Swift Trawler 48 is powered by a standard pair of Cummins QSB 6.7 liter 380-hp engines, providing a top speed of 23 knots. With the upgraded 425-hp engines, the boat can reach 26 knots.
