See the Bénéteau Swift Trawler 50 in action in Palma in our photos

Bénéteau was showcasing its full range of motorboats in Palma, Mallorca in April. Boats on show included the new Barracuda 7 and the Swift Trawler 50, which MBM first reported on from the 2012 Southampton Boat Show.

Here the boat was shown in a new grey hull colour, which certainly helps break up the boat’s beefy lines.

This three-cabin trawler yacht definitely falls into the new hybrid category of boats MBM has been featuring, with lower top speeds but a useful performance range that covers efficient displacement and mid-teen rates, right up to a rapid 20-knot top end.

Prices for the Bénéteau Swift Trawler 50 start at around £580,000 inc VAT.
