The Bénéteau Swift Trawler 30 will be launched in December with up to 370hp on tap and a cruising range of 200 miles

Bénéteau has revealed the designs for the upcoming Swift Trawler 30, ahead of its December launch at the Paris Boat Show.

The new arrival will be the smallest model in the French yard’s popular Swift Trawler range, but will still have sleeping accommodation for up to six people.

This is thanks to the double owner’s cabin in the bow, convertible double dinette in the saloon and the option for an amidships double bunk cabin on the portside.

Moving around deck should be safe and practical, thanks to the high handrails and asymmetrical side decks, which make for plenty of space on the starboard side.

Finally, the cockpit area is highly versatile, with fold-up seats and a table that can slide away to free up plenty of space while underway.

Prices are yet to be confirmed, but with Bénéteau’s reputation for value for money and sheer production volume, you can expect them to be highly competitive.
