A rare opportunity to purchase a ready to go for the season and very highly specified Beneteau Swift Trawler 44 which has been lovingly cared for to an exceptionally high standard by its two previous owners. Sold by Ancasta new and to her second owner. Built in December 2015 and handed over to her first owner in 2016. Engines serviced, antifouled and new anodes May 2020.
Timelessly elegant, combining classic style and great innovation, the prestigious Swift Trawler 44 is a fast and eminently seaworthy vessel and is more than capable of long-haul voyages. Underway, her semi-displacement hull offers exceptional sea keeping qualities at all speeds and excellent stability as she breaks through the waves. Intended for life on board, the Swift Trawler 44 features large interior spaces, all beautifully designed.
‘DarkSide’ is a very high specification example of this world-renowned trawler. She has wrap-around teak decks, spacious bathing platform together with upgraded navigation system (including radar and AIS), upgraded batteries and extra anodes.
She boasts a spacious aft cockpit, Eberspacher heating system throughout, a large light filled saloon, roomy two cabin accommodation plus a settee which converts to a comfortable double bed, all of which makes her ideal for good times with family and friends. Part exchange possible against this boat.

SLEEPS SIX IN TWO DOUBLE CABINS PLUS SALOON WITH TWO HEADS
Access to the boat is either through the starboard side gate from the pontoon or the rear transom gate from the swimming platform.
The aft cockpit area is self-draining with two spacious lazarettes under the deck and a smaller locker situated underneath the flybridge staircase which houses the gas bottles. There is further storage space underneath the port side seating area. There is also a hot and cold shower.
The flybridge is self-draining and access is via a staircase from the aft cockpit. A stainless steel guardrail surrounds the aft flybridge area. There is a white lacquered electric mast and swinging boom to use for lifting and storing the tender on the aft flybridge area. The mast also houses the radar, spotlight, aerials and the steaming light. The helm is central and includes engine controls, dials and navigation electronics along with the stainless-steel steering wheel. There are two individual pilot seats. The flybridge area to port has an ‘L’ shaped seating area and a chaise longue bench seat on the opposite side. Between them is wooden table. At the top of the flybridge stairway there is a galley unit with beer fridge and sink.
There is a great feeling of light and openness throughout the saloon due to the large all-round windows with a triple sliding door to the cockpit area. The saloon has a linear settee to starboard which easily converts into a double berth with a dividing rail and curtain to separate the galley and helm station from the saloon creating a private cabin space. There are two director’s chairs and a six place fold out dining table which can be easily moved. Cupboards and shelves provide excellent storage.
The ‘U’ shaped galley is forward on the port side and benefits from a large opening window. The counter tops and twin sink covers are Corian “Sagebrush” and both sinks are in stainless steel with mixer taps. The galley is fitted with a microwave/combi oven, 3 burner gas hob, front opening fridge, wine fridge and a good selection of drawers and cupboards.
The interior helm benefits from a vertical glass windscreen with aluminium frames, an anti-reflective coating and windscreen wipers with washers and demisters. The instrument panel includes all navigation electronics, engine dials, controls and helm.
The owner’s cabin is forward down three steps and has a generous double berth with large stowage underneath. To both sides of the berth there are two full length wardrobes. The mattress lies upon a wooden slatted base to provide extra comfort. A door leads to the en-suite heads compartment with a quiet flush electric toilet, separate shower with fold down seat over WC, stowage and mirror with back lighting.
The guest cabin to port has a good-sized double bed and plenty of storage in draws an cupboards.
The day head is opposite the guest cabin and has a quiet flush electric toilet, shower, stowage and mirror with backlighting.
The interior woodwork is Alpi Mahogany and the upholstery is Taupe.
