Built on a semi-planing flared hull, the Swift Trawler 35 has a Cummins 425hp engine. It is protected either by a soft top or a bimini. Broad walkways, lots of handrails and high push pits reveal the importance attached to safety on board. With regard to visibility, the Swift Trawler 35’s wheelhouse has a 360° view and is bathed with natural light.
Continuing to the far end of the starboard gangway, the awning closing off the cockpit unfolds quickly and easily from the flybridge structure. The exterior blind of the side door overlooking the gangway shuts off this space, providing privacy. The emphasis on protection is repeated on the flybridge with the semi-hard Bimini or soft-top with built-in LEDs. The soft-top’s steel arch features the Beneteau signature mark and can be used to support antennas and flags.
The flybridge seats six people at the table, with an optional fridge, a driving station with repeated navigation instruments, a rotating driver’s seat and a double sun-lounger at the stern.
The owner cabin is accessible through a gullwing door making it easy to move around. The second twin cabin with bunk beds has a spacious and fully fitted shower room with independent shower. The sofabed in the saloon provides an extra berth at night and it can be shut off from the wheelhouse by a curtain.
As the Swift Trawler 35 is designed for long cruises, it has two large water tanks, each with a capacity of 400 litres, and two grey water tanks.
