Positioned as “exceptionally seaworthy boats, featuring exquisite comfort and luxury, and an incredible amount of space, ideal for the perfect ocean cruises, the two new models will launch in 2021.

These two yachts, one of which is over 20-metres (over 65-feet) long, are the result of Beneteau’s collaboration with Massimo Gino (Nauta Design) and Amedeo Migali (MICAD).

The design captialises on the highly successful Swift Trawler range of practical, spacious boats, with a considerable cruising range, and put Groupe Bénéteau’s experience in producing luxury boats to good use.

Both new vessels have a distinctive displacement hull, developed by MICAD with the aim of improving their cruising range and efficiency, making it easier for owners to cast off on long-distance cruises.

A satin wax finished wood, leather and elegant textiles make for a stylish interior and exterior, masterfully designed by the experts at Nauta Design.


Strikingly spacious inside, with volumes similar to much bigger yachts, and ingeniously designed, these large passagemakers also have enough space to comfortably accommodate crew.

The first model is 18.95-metres long (62-feet) and has a hull beam of over five metres (16-feet 5 inches).

Designed for up to eight guests on board (plus crew), the boat has an impressive flybridge – one of the biggest on the market.

The interior spaces are spacious and well-appointed. The galley can be completely enclosed. The VIP guest cabin in the bow, has a considerable amount of headroom, so that you feel like you are in a hotel suite.

Comfortable and seaworthy, with a cruising range of 900 nautical miles and a central raised helm station, the new 62-foot model is ideal for leisurely cruising.

The second model is 22.28 metres long (73-feet 1-inch) designed for eight people and four crew. With space inside similar to an 85-foot boat, emphasis is on the flow of movement for guests and crew. A raised pilothouse is located midships, cleverly positioned between the main deck and the flybridge and accessed by a dedicated stairway.

Beneteau is exhiting at Boot Dusseldorf until 26 January.
