Ancasta Salcombe are delighted to offer this all new Beneteau Swift Trawler 48 which is the latest model in the supremely popular Swift Trawler line-up with a host of innovative features and brilliant sea keeping qualities - This brand new boat is ready for delivery to her new owner.

The ST48 has a strikingly stylish profile that features the new stainless framed teak slat fashion plates, aligning the boat with the Grand Trawler 62. The spacious outdoor areas have been carefully designed to allow family and friends to enjoy the sea at any time of day

The hull has been optimised to provide a boat that is both comfortable and efficient. The slender bow is remarkably seaworthy, which reduces fuel consumption and makes sailing safer. Over 600 nautical miles of range at 9 knots! The delights of the sea can be enjoyed thanks to the generous Swift Trawler 48 exterior spaces. The aft cockpit fits a folding table and two directors' chairs, which together with the large bench seat, maximise the indoor/outdoor living space. The transom double gate opens onto a large swim platform with a hydraulic lifting system. The 20 sqm flybridge is a fantastic space for panoramic views. The Flybridge benefits from seating either side of the pilot seat allowing plentiful forward-facing seating during passage making. Aft there is a great area to eat & relax with a large dining table, wet bar and grill. On the foredeck, the sun pad with lift up sections creates forward seating. The asymmetrical deck layout allows for a wide and well-protected starboard side deck.

Andreani Design totally revisited the interior design and layout. A large fully-equipped L-shaped galley offers plentiful capacity for extended cruising. Forward of the galley, a spacious raised U-shaped dinette provides seating for up to 8 with great views all around. To starboard, the helm station has an adjacent side door for easy docking and circulation. In the lower accommodation, the forward owner’s cabin features a double berth and plenty of storage. The en-suite bathroom includes a separate shower cubicle. The port guest cabin has two single berths with an infill to make up a double berth. This cabin also features an en-suite door to the portside day head. The starboard guest cabin has two portlights, a transverse double berth and a double door wardrobe. The hull windows and overhead hatches flood the cabins with natural light and cross ventilation.

Seaworthy, with easy circulation, the brand new Swift Trawler 48 accommodation is well thought out and easy to live aboard. The designers at Andreani Design drew from the extensive Swift Trawler experience with other models, seeking to maximise the flow onboard and to create a warm, familiar feel to the accommodation.

The main deck features a large galley fitted aft, with a full-height fridge freezer, Corian worktop & plentiful stowage on port side aft, with a very spacious sideboard on starboard which is configured with Villeroy & Boch crockery. This arrangement ensures you are still part of the party, whether catering for guests eating in the forward dinette or aft in the cockpit.

Forward of the galley is a raised large dinette that easily converts to a double berth. The helm station is on starboard adjacent to the signature Swift Trawler sliding side door and bulwark side door for easy docking and movement around the boat.

On the lower deck, there are three cabins in total, with a master cabin forward, one double berth and a twin berth. In addition, there is a saloon conversion offering a further double berth.

The forward owner's cabin features a double berth, large hull windows & overhead hatch for plenty of natural light and ventilation. Space is luxury and there is an incredible 8.5 sqm of overall space in this cabin, which is bathed in natural light from the side hull windows, which have openable portholes for keeping the area well circulated. The en-suite bathroom includes a separate shower cubicle with a seat and another opening porthole.

The port guest cabin has a large hull window, a wardrobe and an infill to make up a double berth with an en-suite door to the day head – in which you find a separate shower cubicle with a seat too. This head has a shared door to the lower hallway, making it accessible for the starboard cabin.

The starboard guest cabin features a transverse double berth and storage.
