Exterior design

The innovative Swift Trawler 54 passagemaker includes a stunning cockpit and a spacious flybridge, all with soft seating and luxury touches. It offers a terrace to the sea. The stern boasts a 400 kg tender lift, ample storage for kayaks and paddleboards and a hydraulic swim platform with adaptive dinghy chocks. On the foredeck, the U-shaped seating area with an inset table easily converts into a huge sunpad, with dedicated fender stowage underneath.  

The gentle “S” sheerline line that rises towards the bow gives the hull a purposeful, timeless stance. The clean low profile flybridge above the continuous glass superstructure gives an overall lightness while retaining all the strength needed for a true passagemaker. 

Interior design

The visually stunning interior environment boasts a well-appointed galley with a raised passagemaker dinette, a large saloon and an attractive “architectural” flybridge stair. Built with six berths, with the option for an additional single crew berth, the layout is perfect for long family cruises. The separate shower cubicles feature Corian flooring with the addition of a rain shower in the ensuite of the full beam aft owner cabin.  

To mark the 140 years of BENETEAU heritage, an upgraded refined finish comes as standard, using premium materials to create an open space that feels elegant and sophisticated while also remaining warm, social and functional.

Before After

Your new home on the water

Offering extended outdoor space from bow to stern, the Swift Trawler 54 combines contemporary design, high-end finishes and innovations throughout to deliver an eye-catching cruiser that gives owners plentiful stowage and home comforts for weeks on board.

Contemporary design

The design elements have been carefully curated to create an ambiance of elegance and sophistication. In every space, there is a focus on premium materials, exquisite craftsmanship, and attention to detail.

Pioneering innovations

BENETEAU prides itself on embracing innovative solutions. The Dixon Yacht Design “Fusion” hull form ensures a more efficient navigation, with excellent all-round handling and comfort. The latest Sleipner Vector Gen 3 fins provide excellent stability with 360-degree control. The “easy load” lazarette and flybridge pushpit stowage are cutting-edge additions. The “Silent Boat” option allows for up to 10 hours of on anchor autonomy without the need to run the generator or disturb your neighbours in the bay, with solar panels topping up the lithium battery bank. 

Home-inspired space

Visibility, control, communication, convenience, and social dynamics, with the helmsman at heart, were central to the design process to create a safer, more enjoyable, and efficient boating experience. The design prioritises safe and easy circulation between the helm and galley side doors and the panoramic wheelhouse windows.
