The Swift Trawler 44 delivers best-in-class fuel efficiency, speed, comfort, and stability whether you’re out on the lake, cruising the open ocean, or in the bay.


Interior designer : P. FRUTSCHI


Motorboat of the Year 2012

Exterior design

The Swift Trawler 44 is the result of a joint collaboration by the BENETEAU design office, the architect Michel Joubert, and the designer Pierre Frutschi. Underway, her semi-displacement hull offers very enjoyable sensations at all speeds, as well as terrific stability as she breaks through the waves. She is timelessly elegant, combining classic style and great modernity.

Interior design

Designed to increase the living space, the interior of the Swift Trawler 44 is full of light. Her fittings have a variety of functions and there is a large number of storage spaces. Her cabins look like rooms and in a few steps the convertible sofa turns the salon into a guest room. The ergonomic helm station and anti-glare windshield enhance safety underway. The Mahogany woodwork adds a classic yet contemporary touch, creating a warm atmosphere.

Swift & Balanced

Whatever thoughts you have on long-distance cruising and whatever the destination, the Swift Trawler 44 is surprisingly versatile. A well-balanced boat, it provides a unique feeling of safety and well-being.


With a unanimously acclaimed hull, the Swift Trawler 44 adapts to all sea conditions and can reach a top speed of 24 knots. Its starboard walkway and flybridge ladder are well protected. 


The excellent performance of the Swift Trawler 44 gives her reassuringly consistent fuel consumption: between 12 and 19 knots she performs identically.


The huge flybridge lounge and her galley increase the number of living spaces on board. The central driving station has outstanding visibility. The pleasure of cruising is a joy to be shared on the Swift Trawler 44 flybridge!


Large hull portholes bathe the cabins in light. The convertible sofa with separating curtain turns the salon into private space, creating a third cabin in a few seconds.

The huge cockpit is a true living space, where you can shelter from the wind thanks to a protecting door.
