Beneteau Swift Trawler 41: French heavyweight plans major Cannes launch

With both flybridge and sedan versions, the Beneteau Swift Trawler 41 is much more than just a replacement for an aging model

Coming into the range as a direct replacement for the ageing 44, the Beneteau Swift Trawler 41 is quite a different craft from the boat it has been designed to replace.

First, it’s available as a Sedan (for almost €30,000 less than the Fly) and has been designed from the off to be one.

Secondly, the trusted forward galley layout has been dropped with an aft galley appearing on a Swift Trawler for the first time.

The reason for this is to tie the galley more closely to the cockpit and its sliding bench, which boosts the useable floor space, and to bring the double helm seat into play at the internal dinette, where it swivels across the passageway to create two extra spaces at the table.

Below decks you will find two-and-a-half cabins (the utility room to starboard has a single bunk in it) and a separate toilet and shower room for the master cabin in the bow.

The Swift Trawler 41 is another capable and intelligently packaged pseudo trawler in the Beneteau stable.
