***Voted 2012 "Motor Boat Of The Year" by Motor Boats Monthly***
Live the island life and make the Swift Trawler 44 your home port. In addition to a fine running hull, the new Swift Trawler 44 from Beneteau adds improved performance and unparalleled fuel economy, loads of storage, and increased livability and comfort...
Beneteau's Swift Trawler 44 is a stunning combination of everything that contributes to the joy of cruising with the comfort and performance of a much larger yacht. Truly at the top of its class, the new Beneteau ST44 outshines the competition in every category.
Powered with twin Volvo Penta D4 300hp diesels with bow and stern thrusters, she will cruise effortlessly at 18 knots (burning just under 1 gallon per nautical mile) with a top speed of 25 knots (WOT). Even at wide open throttle, the ST44 still only burns around 1 gallon per nautical mile -- amazing fuel efficiency, made possible by her brilliantly engineered hull design, which boasts maximum stability and an impressively comfortable ride even in rough conditions.
Style? She has plenty of it, from her elegant European fit and finish to her light and spacious living areas with breathtaking views in every direction.

The Swift Trawler 44 by Beneteau is built for comfort, stability and convienience. Whether it is simply a day on the bay or "The Great Loop" this boat truly fits the bill. The roominess you find inside this boat make cruising with others a breeze. While European styling is a plus, it is the hull design that truly makes this boat stand out, with the ability to be in a trawler and cruise anywhere between 14 and 18 knots while burning less than 17.5 gallons of fuel per hour. At wide open throttle this Swift Trawler reaches 25 knots while still getting a mile to the gallon! The ST 44 is truly in a class of its own!
Irresistable proportions, a hull designed to take everything the sea has to offer and a lot of liveaboard space. The Swift Trawler 44 is designed for liveability, stability in high seas and comfort at anchor.
