Beneteau is launching a powerboat designed for liveaboards.

The boatbuilder will launch the all-new Swift Trawler 50 this fall in Europe and North America and the vessel is designed to make living aboard easy, according to the company.

“Architect Michel Joubert and designer Pierre Frutschi created a masterpiece with the new Swift 50,” Beneteau Powerboats vice president of sales and marketing Laurent Fabre said in a statement. “The boat features a more modern silhouette and smart interior design for living onboard. By incorporating Volvo IPS pod propulsion, not only is the Swift 50 as quick and fuel-efficient as her sisters in the range, but it frees up valuable space in the midship, making the boat feel larger and more spacious than other boats in her class while providing exceptional maneuverability.”

The Swift 50 will be on display Sept. 25-30 at the Baltimore TrawlerFest, Oct. 11-14 at the Annapolis Powerboat Show and Oct. 25-29 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

In Europe, the Swift 50 will debut Sept. 11-16 at the Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes, and be displayed Sept. 14-23 at the Southampton Boat Show, Oct. 6-14 at the 52nd International Boat Show in Genoa and Nov. 5-13 at the Barcelona International Boat Show.

After years of research and development Beneteau introduced its first Swift Trawler model a decade ago. Today, a range from 34 to 52 feet is available throughout the United States and Canada.
