Irish Beneteau agents BJ Marine has announced the launch of its Grand Trawler 62.

The Trawler 62 builds on the already established and market-leading range of Swift Trawlers, with boats from 30ft-50ft.

The new Grand Trawler 62 offers incredible interior living space with either 3 or 4 cabin configurations, finished and detailed to a remarkably luxurious standard. She has the ability to do true long-distance cruising, with a range of 900 nautical miles. Ideal for exploring the Irish coast or enjoying the best of what the Mediterranean has to offer.

2020 has again seen the continued popularity Beneteau's Swift Trawler range in Irish waters. BJ Marine handed over the first Swift Trawler 47 sold in the UK/Ireland in August and also had a new Swift Trawler 44 arrive in Greystones.

This builds on an existing fleet for the ’30s, '34s, '35s, '42s and 44s in Ireland. The Swift Trawlers have always been designed for owners to spend extended periods on board and The Grand Trawler 62 takes that to another level, becoming the flagship of the Beneteau powerboat offering.
