Beneteau unveiled the Swift Trawler 30 at the Paris Boat Show, which opened last weekend and will continue through Dec. 13.

The latest addition to the line of fast trawlers will make her North American premiere at the Feb. 11-15 Yachts Miami Beach, formerly known as the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach.

“While the new Swift Trawler 30 clearly challenges the pocket yacht market, it retains the key attributes of our no-compromise Swift Trawler philosophy: seaworthiness and safety, fuel economy at trawler speed and planing speed alike and an incredible level of comfort for a boat her size,” Beneteau North America powerboat sales manager Justin Joyner said in a statement.

The Paris show also was the opportunity for North American dealers to discover the new 32-foot yacht firsthand.

“The end result is impressive and the feedback from our dealers could not be more positive. With the new 30, Beneteau clearly signals it is ready to significantly expand the production capacity of the Swift Trawler range,” Joyner said.
