The Beneteau Swift Trawler 44 is one of the most popular fast trawlers ever designed (over 300 were made); capable of fast cruising at 18 knots, she is powered by twin 300 HP Volvo Pentas, with bow and stern thrusters for ease of docking. She features 2 cabins and 2 heads, and the salon can easily be converted into sleeping for 2 more guests.

"Westward Drift" is a great example. Her owners, who bought her new, have added lots of improvements and followed all the servicing guidelines, often going above and beyond. Besides the fact that she's a 2019 with the latest electronics and low use (only 415 hours on the engines, and 188 on the generator), the owners have added a full flybridge enclosure, an Olsson Davit off the stern with a very nice AB tender, custom mattresses and Infinity mats for the cockpit and starboard sidedeck. She has lots of newer boating gear and is turnkey and ready to cruise (The owners just came back from a final cruise into Canada).

Lastly, this boat is in an LLC that can be purchased.
