Exterior design

The Swift Trawler 50 is the result of the continued collaboration of the BENETEAU powerboat design office with naval architect Michel Joubert and interior designer Pierre Frutschi. Her contemporary constructed hull, specially designed for IPS engines (2 IPS 600), boasts outstanding stability, safety, and maneuverability.

Interior Design

Built for long-distance cruising, the Swift Trawler 50 cleverly maximizes autonomy. Fitted with a large U-shaped galley, washing machine and tumble dryer, she is available with three large double cabins or two double cabins with an office and extra berth.  Ideally located at the center of the boat, the en suite owner's quarters have separate shower and head compartments. A few simple steps and the converting sofa with a separating curtain turns the salon into an extra cabin. Finished in rich mahogany paired with your choice of contemporary decoration, she will define elegance.

Swift & Easy

Surpassing all expectations, her every detail is designed to solve a triple challenge: excel in safety, long distance, and comfort. For two to eight on short or long distance cruises, the Swift Trawler 50 calls all those who seek ocean adventures.


With a joystick for maneuvering, electric aft capstan winches making mooring easier, on-board control cameras, and hydraulic platform to launch the tender, the high level of equipment makes cruising and manoeuvering safe.  Beside the helm station, a clever dining space can be converted into a watch berth for long distance cruises, while the service hatch between the galley and the flybridge makes life effortless on the upper deck.

Night Spaces

The Swift Trawler 50 is available in two versions: three double cabins or two double cabins with office, extra berth, and skipper cabin. Ideally located at the center of the boat, the ensuite owner’s quarters have separate shower and separate toilet compartments. The guest cabin is spacious and bright. The converting sofa, with separating curtain, turns the salon into an extra cabin. 


Surrounded by high bulwarks and increased width of the walkways, the spacious deck plan reinforces safety onboard.
