Flagship of the range that reinvented the traditional trawler, the 2016 version of the Swift Trawler 50 offers a greater amount of interior space and light.  
For romantic or family getaways, it appeals to all numbers of crew for its intelligently-designed fittings and very easy handling.

Exterior design

Resulting from the collaboration of Bénéteau Powerboat, the architect Michel Joubert and the designer Pierre Frutschi, the Swift Trawler 50 boasts a contemporary silhouette emphasized by a very fluid flybridge line, redesigned for this 2016 edition. Her hull is specially designed for IPS engines (2 IPS 600) and this long-distance cruiser combines outstanding stability and manoeuvrability. The high bulwarks surrounding the deck reinforce the safety of movements on board.

Interior Design

Cleverly-designed and pragmatic, the Swift Trawler 50 maximizes autonomy features to enable long-distance cruising. Available with three large double cabins or two double cabins together with an office with an extra berth, it has a magnificent U-shaped galley and is fitted with a washing machine and tumble drier. The finish and choice of contemporary decoration contrast with the Mahogany woodwork ambiance creating an infinitely more elegant interior.

Swift & Easy

A boat whose every detail is designed to solve a triple challenge: cruising long distances, in safety and comfortably. For two to eight, on get-away trips, short or long-distance cruises, the Swift Trawler 50 is a boat for ocean adventures.


With a joystick for manoeuvring, 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 manoeuvres safe.  A very clever dining space beside the helm station can be converted into a watch berth for long-distance cruises. The service hatch between the galley and the flybridge makes life easier 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 centre 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 saloon into and extra cabin.


The whole of the deck is surrounded by high bulwarks.  The width of the walkways has been increased. Both the flybridge and wheelhouse enjoy extraordinary visibility. The interior companionway slopes gently, providing access to the cabins.
