Since Beneteau announced “Project E” and presented the mock-up of the owner‘s cabin of it during last year’s boot Düsseldorf, this new powerboat range for long-distance cruises with exquisite comfort and luxury has growingly raised public expectations.
The latest range is called the Grand Trawler, expanding the scope of the brand’s iconic Swift Trawler line, and the first model of the collection—the Grand Trawler 62 has taken shape.
The Grand Trawler 62 is built in the state-of-the-art Monfalcone plant in Italy. Beneteau is organising a VIP weekend for factory tours with the assistance of the Premium Service Team at the end of January.
Customer sea trials are expected to be open in Mid-April in Italy. By then, Beneteau Asia-Pacific will host a webinar for the press in the region, to connect with the masterminds behind the 62, discussing her design concepts, features, highlights and more.
With 19-meter at length, the new model represents a successful collaboration between MICAD Naval Architecture Office and Nauta Design. She boasts a cruising range of 900-nautical-miles with 10 percent fuel reserve and at a cruising speed of 9 knots, thanks to her full-displacement hull specially designed by MICAD to upgrade the cruising range and efficiency.
The expertise of Nauta Design contributes to increasing the feeling of space, comfort and elegance onboard.
The raised helm station with cutting-edge equipment offers a spectacular view.
The internal stairway from it leads directly to the 31-square-metre flybridge, featuring U-shaped sofa, relaxation spaces and sun pad. She is available in two versions: three or four cabins. What’s worth mentioning is that the headroom in each cabin is two meters on average.
The Grand Trawler 62 will be officially launched in Cannes this September. The great news is that she will grace the waters in the Asia-Pacific region at the end of 2021.
