This Beneteau Swift Trawler 34 is in excellent condition and has been very well maintained from new. Katie J was supplied from new by DDZ Marine in August 2016 and has had one owner. She has low engine hours and has some excellent additional options including bow and stern thrusters, Raymarine autopilot with remote control, Webasto heating, COPPER COAT ANTIFOULING, solar panel for charging the domestic battery, cockpit bench seat with storage locker, etc, additions based on the previous owners experiences of cruising the west coast of Scotland. This boat is well kitted out for comfortable cruising for lengthy periods and has been much enjoyed by her previous owners. Katie J was based in South Uist and has wandered the west coast from Largs to the Shiant Islands. She has a beefy anchoring system (Brittany pattern 18 kg anchor with 60m of 8mm chain plus nylon rope) which enables you to anchor safely in remote locations. She has never dragged anchor, despite some testing conditions. She comes with a Zodiac inflatable dinghy to get you ashore to explore. She would suit owners who prefer to get away from marina pontoons and enjoy exploring.

The Beneteau Swift Trawler 34 benefits from a semi-planing hull similar to the one on which its senior siblings have built their reputation. The new model is a collaborative effort between designers Joubert - Nivelt and the BENETEAU design team. Its proposition is as simple as it is attractive: comfortable on-board living for a couple and their guests. 1. Outside: traditional, comfortable design The Swift Trawler 34 inherits its overall visual appeal from its 42-foot big brother, with a stylish wheelhouse and large flybridge, complete with derrick for easy tender handling and stowage. The capacious cockpit locker is big enough to store every item of seagoing equipment. A hinged gate provides access to the transom skirt and its bathing ladder. Access to the generous sunbathing platform forward of the wheelhouse is either via the starboard passageway (with its safety door) or the wide and ultra-safe side deck to port. The flying bridge is surprisingly spacious and extremely comfortable. To port, a large space is available to house the tender, whilst further forward is the starboard helm position and saloon with a 6-seater table. 2. Inside: modular space The wheelhouse interior is accessed via a 3-panel sliding glass door that creates a perfect feeling of space. The saloon converts very easily to provide a double berth to starboard (with a clic-clac sofa bed opening to 1.20 x 2.00 metres). Moving forward, the port side helm station with its double bench seat is extremely comfortable. The removable floor step is retractable for easy access to the passageway via a sliding side door. The U-shaped galley with its double sink and choice of work surfaces is to port. The companionway leads to the port guest cabin (with bunk berths) and the starboard washroom and WC with its ventilation port and storage. The bow compartment houses the generous owner?s cabin with its large bed (1.99 x 1.60 metres with access from both sides) and many storage spaces (including one beneath the bed). A great deal of work has been done to maximise the acoustic insulation on board. Lastly, the Swift Trawler 34 is extremely roomy, with a saloon, galley and owner?s cabin comparable in size to the accommodation offered in the 42-foot version; in fact, the finishes and woodwork are identical. 3. At sea: performance in comfort The Swift Trawler 34 is powered by a single Cummins 425 HP diesel delivering a maximum speed of 22 knots for real safety and performance at lower fuel consumption. The hull is immensely stable when moored and underway, and berthing manoeuvrability is maximised by the bow thruster (standard) and stern thruster (optional). Clear access to the engine, plumbing and electrical systems makes for easy maintenance and servicing.
