Combining comfort, confidence, and capability, the Swift Trawler 47 is the ideal boat for traveling with the family. She is designed to take you further faster with 580 gallons of fuel. She appeals to all on board with her open and welcoming wheelhouse

Exterior Design

Her robust look instantly inspires safety. This feeling is confirmed on board with a very practical open deck plan. Large walkways and several hand rails make passengers feel extra safe moving around. On the large flybridge, up to four people can sit up front underway, facing the sea. The cockpit is wonderfully modular so that you can enjoy the best of what the sea has to offer. The transom provides access to a large swim platform where you can enjoy leisure activities while at anchor. Already easy to handle with its twin engine, the Swift Trawler 47 can be equipped with joysticks that will make maneuvering in the harbor child’s play. 

Interior Design

With three cabins and a sofabed, the Swift Trawler 47 can provide up to eight very comfortable berths. On the upper deck, enjoy the large convivial lounge with facing seats and the open L-shaped galley, all with high-quality fittings. Modular and generous, the salon converts to a guest cabin in a few seconds. The Swift Trawler 47’s wheelhouse is accessed from a side door to starboard. It is bathed in natural light and offers excellent visibility from the central driving station.

A Chance to Get Away

Clever, elegant, and incredibly safe, the Swift Trawler 47 will tempt you to explore new places and get away from it all, in your own personal style.
