Beneteau’s New Swift Trawler 41 Is An Exciting Prospect

Irish Beneteau dealers BJ Marine are looking forward to the arrival of the new Swift Trawler 41.

The Swift Trawler range has been one of the most successful in Irish waters, says BJ Marine’s James Kirwan, especially the original 42 and the 44.

This latest and final addition to the successful range of long-distance cruisers is 13.3 metres long with a 4.2 metre beam, combining seaworthiness with living space and comfort, and inherits the contemporary feel — and optimised hull design — of last year’s Swift Trawler 47.

Famed for stability and economy, the Swift Trawler has been particularly popular for sailors who are looking to take a step away from sailing and move to power.

What is incredibly exciting about the new 41 is the amount of accommodation that they have managed to pack in to the boat — up to seven passengers — as well as the option of the Sedan for our climate at home when the flybridge can sometimes be under-utilised.

James will be aboard the boat in two weeks for trials and will come back with a full report that will be of particular interest to existing Swift Trawler owners and those looking to crossover from sailing, as the Swift Trawler range always provides the answer to their needs.
