Beneteau Adds Swift Trawler Range

by admin

Even bigger, to take you greater distances in true comfort, The Grand Trawler 62 broadens the scope of Beneteau’s iconic Swift Trawler line. 

 

At a shade under 19metres Beneteau’s Grand Trawler 62 is a long-distance cruiser at heart and the perfect embodiment of “slow living”. She has a cruising range of 900 nautical miles with 10% fuel reserve and at a cruising speed of 8 knots. Fitted with two MAN i6 730 hp engines, the Grand Trawler 62, has enough power to reach 20 knots when required. 

Designed by Micad naval architectural office, her full displacement hull was explicitly developed to optimise the passagemaker’s cruising range and

efficiency. “Although her exterior lines appear elegant and straightforward, in reality, the under-water surfaces are mathematically complex. It took 300 hours of processing calculations and tank testing to design the hull. 

True luxury in today’s world is also space. The Grand Trawler 62 is exceptionally spacious, attributable to Beneteau’s recent work with the multi-talented Nauta Design studio. The control and optimisation of the accommodation areas, designed for spending a long time on board, ensuring everyone is genuinely comfortable.

The cockpit affords seamless access to a sizeable full-beam lounge area bathed in light. The galley is directly opposite the dining area and opens onto the saloon. The raised central helm station has all the equipment you would find in the wheelhouse of a large yacht. The reverse section windshield offers a panoramic view that can be shared from a comfortable portside bench seat. An internal stairway from the driving station goes up to the flybridge, all combining to provide easy, relaxed circulation during navigation.

The impressive 31 square metres of flybridge space makes it one of the largest in this size. A large U-shaped sofa provides space for eight guests around the table. It has the additional features of relaxation spaces and a fitted wet bar facing the guests. The extensive sun pad on the foredeck is prolonged by a comfortable bench facing the sea also accessible by the cockpit ladder.  

To indulge in the pleasures of the open air, the large cockpit has a transom that opens fully onto the sea, creating a seamless space between the deck lounge and the generously proportioned 9sqm swim platform. The Grand Trawler 62 is available in either three or four cabins. Service and comfort onboard the flagship Trawler can be provided by a crew of two, with stern quarters  accessed by a separate entrance.

Following the international success of the Swift Trawler line, Beneteau takes it a step further with the Grand Trawler 62. She will be launching in 2021.
