This is probably one of the best Beneteau Swift Trawler 42’s on the water.

This superb boat was delivered new to Mallorca where it stayed for two years prior to being returned to the UK to her supplying Beneteau dealer where she remained until 2014.

Since 2014 it has been extensively re equipped and lavished with care and attention which shows. This was one of the last 42’s to be equipped with the superb Yanmar 370hp’s (around which the model was designed). These smooth and reliable engines have only 406 and 403 hrs on them and are in as new condition barely run in.

In 2014 her anti fouling was professionally removed and Coppercoat epoxy applied in a temperature and moisture controlled specialist environment by the specialist Coppercoat agent Fox’s in Ipswich. At the same time a new Stern Thruster was fitted and twin joystick controls installed at both Helms.

One of the UK’s premier sail maker and canvas supplier “Dolphin Sails” custom designed top of the range canopies, window covers and Bimini including a full set of canopy mesh set to allow both privacy and a “bug” free environment in the large aft cockpit.

A full additional (and separately wired for redundancy purposes) set of navigation equipment was also installed to both helms (Garmin 12” & 8” plotters and HDx Radar dome), along with Raymarine AIS transponder, Blaupunkt TV/DVD with booster and multi directional aerial, as well as a Wi Fi hub and booster and aerial capable of supplying long range connectivity from Wi Fi sources and also 3/4G capable with Sim installed. Three new VHF/AIS aerials installed.

Existing Nav gear has been updated and both systems have full up to date mapping. Original Navigation equipment comprises 12” & 8” Ramarine “E” series with Radar and Raymarine autopilot as well as Navtex and linked Raymarine DSC VHF units.

A new Hydronic Ebberspacher system was professionally installed by DDZ Marine in 2015 which includes towel radiators in both heads and an additional hot air output for the aft cockpit. A new Calorfier now gets heat from engines, mains electric or the heating system. A new Generator (now less than 10 hours) was also installed as well as an Inverter and a full new set of engine and domestic Batteries and associated switch gear.

New high tech teak decking was professionally laid on the Flybridge cockpit and the full real teak decking on cockpit side decks and bow were fully refurbished.

An additional 20m calibrate anchor chain was professionally added with stainless steel swivel anchor connection.

A stern passerelle is fitted. A new Panasonic combination oven/grill/microwave is fitted to augment the standard gas three burner hob and oven/grill. Extra 240volt sockets fitted in saloon, cockpit and main Lazarette.

This Swift Trawler 42 is well worth travelling to view and will not disappoint!
