The Swift Trawler 52, the Beneteau’s powerboat fleet’s new flagship, holds high the aims and values of the brand. The 52 is a large yacht with excellent sea-keeping qualities.

Made in the image of other Beneteau models, it is born of a passion shared by the boatyard and their designer. The 52’s semi planing hull, designed by Beneteau’s Michel Joubert and Bernard Nivelt, gives increased performance compared to the Trawlers’ classic displacement hulls, whilst retaining the exceptional sea keeping qualities. The unique experience of Joubert and Nivelt combined with the advanced basin tests of the hull has produced the right balance between performance and seaworthiness.

Contemporary, simple and elegant, the interior layout of the Swift Trawler 52 creates a warm atmosphere that invites you to live aboard. The use of woods of contrasting colours emphasises the stylish lines of the furnishings. The tones vary between these warm shades and the soft sand/beige colour of the upholstery and the whole boat is bathed in natural light.

The layout of the 52 has been designed for ease of life aboard and maximum comfort.

The wheelhouse deck accommodates the main living area, the saloon and its extension. A counter suspended on a pillar separates the galley. The saloon is set off by a wide U-shaped sofa, two armchairs around the bar unit and a large swivel folding table. The galley has been carefully thought out in every detail, with great care taken that it should still be practical. The helm position and the sea Beneteau ST 52 Stateroomberth forward are totally independent of the saloon and give direct access onto the ‘Portuguese bridge’ via two sliding doors. The main access to the flybridge is from the wheelhouse.

Below, two separate suites with shower and toilet will allow four to cruise comfortably. The owners cabin is the vessel’s master cabin. Over 12 sq. metres and bathed in light, it has an uninterrupted view of the ocean. Fitted with numerous stowage lockers, hanging lockers and a desk, this living space has also very good sound insulation due to its central position. To port there is access to a space with a choice of configurations – as a 3rd cabin with bunk beds, as a dressing room or as a private office. To starboard, it has direct access to the passageway and/or the owner’s head compartment separated for the toilet.

The guest cabin at the front of the boat is fitted with a V-shaped berth that can be converted to a double berth. There is an adjoining head compartment with separate shower and toilet.

Outside, the large cockpit separated from the passageway by two doors gives access to the sunbathing platform, the engine room and secondary access to the flybridge. Deep and well protected side decks surround the whole boat. The foredeck fitted with a wide bench seat provides a pleasant sunbathing space.

On the flybridge, the helm position, flybridge saloon with fitted sink and fridge and stowage position for the tender give a nice, open area for full enjoyment of beautiful open air living as well as plenty of stowage space.Beneteau ST 52 Interior
