StateroomThe new Beneteau Swift Trawler 41 renews the spirit of the practical seaworthy cruiser. The powerboat has all the trademark features of this successful range, with clever innovations giving her a fresh contemporary feel.

The Swift Trawler 41 is 44 feet overall with a beam of 13 feet, and is the most recent addition to the successful range of five long-distance cruisers.

Designed to replace the previous Swift Trawler 44, the new Swift Trawler 41 has been placed appropriately in the 40 foot passagemaker category, but the concept has been given a fresh look. A mid-range boat with a strikingly stylish profile, she reflects the Swift Trawler line renewal perfectly, which began last year with the arrival of the Swift Trawler 47. 

The Swift Trawler 41 is smaller than her elder sister, whose contemporary feel she has inherited. Among some of the new ideas is the galley, which has been wisely placed aft of the wheelhouse, connecting seamlessly with the cockpit and the swim platform. With the large sliding glass door open and the bar plancha grill in place, she offers a well ventilated flush interior and exterior space for entertaining.  

Swift Trawler 41The clever new layout of the convertible salon now includes a curtain that runs around the double berth, offering privacy for this comfortable sleeping space. Another new feature is the helm seat, which easily rotates, providing seating for up to eight people in the lounge space. Again, there is an increased sense of space and volume.

As with the other models of the range, the helm station of the Swift Trawler 41 has a large steering wheel and a side door on the starboard walkway. The 41 comes in both a sedan and flybridge version.

The slender flared bow of the Swift Trawler 41 cuts through the sea wonderfully resulting in great fuel consumption and optimal efficiency, with 1.3 Gal per nautical mile, from 10 to 23 knots. Designed for a choice of 2 x 270 HP or 2 x 300 HP engines, her 41 ft long planing hull reaches peak speeds of 23 knots. Her large 317 Gal fuel tanks and 105 Gal fresh water tanks give her a great cruising range. Averaging 16 knots on a cruise, she has a range of roughly 180 nautical miles. Additionally, the boat has been fitted with the on board Ship Control technology, for greater control. This centralizes all the technical features on board on the same display: navigation instruments, batteries, light, temperature, air-conditioning, etc. Ideal for blue water exploration and also perfect for tranquil moorings, the Swift Trawler 41 places the emphasis on a wide variety of leisure activities. Her design is practical with plenty of storage space for a wide range of leisure equipment for children and adults, such as kayaks, paddle boards and bikes. 

Designed for long crossings, the Swift Trawler 41 has generous living spaces and cleverly designed fittings. She is also incredibly safe thanks to protective bulwarks and a high pulpit on the foredeck. With three cabins, the Swift Trawler 41 cruiser has a capacity of up to seven passengers on a cruise.

The GalleyThe large double owner cabin is located in the forward peak and has two separate wet rooms: wash basin and marine toilet to port, and a shower to starboard. On the port side, the guest cabin has a modular double berth that converts to a twin birth. To starboard, there is a lazarette area with a single berth, offering a good-sized storage space and a place where a washing machine/tumble-dryer can be fitted.

The living spaces are modern and attractively bright with our simple décor combining warm coloured woodwork (Alpi, teak and Oak) with light-coloured linings. The cockpit places the emphasis on modularity with a sliding bench giving onto the swim platform, making movement easier and allowing you to install a table for meals. Unless, of course, you prefer the panoramic atmosphere of the flybridge, where you can enjoy a fitted galley and table seating eight people.

Hanse 418By Katherine Stone

Optimized sailing performance and comfortable living – a sweet ride

The expression that came to mind immediately was “Sweet Ride” – and I wasn’t referring to the latest ride at the CNE, a chairlift, or a new Mercedes – it was the new Hanse 418, as it cleanly cut through the water in a gusty 15-20 knot breeze averaging 6-8 knots on Lake Ontario. She was easy to steer and manoeuver even in the big gusts. The extra length over the 388 has made a big difference, with German architects Judel/Vrolijk focusing on updates to the deck layout, cockpit and stern.

ChemainusBy Marianne Scott

The approach to the Chemainus Municipal Dock from Stuart Channel is straightforward and is protected from all but strong northerly winds. The only obstacle may be some large log booms often anchored in the harbour. The Dock is immediately south of the B.C. ferry terminal; the ferry runs to Thetis- and Penelakut Islands.

Harbourmaster Harmen Bootsma, who has been the cheerful, welcoming presence here for a couple of decades, is ready to catch your lines.

WinterizationBy Andrew McDonald, Lakeside Marine Services

“They don’t make ‘em like they used to”, is a phrase that many of us are familiar with. Most of the time it is in reference to a bygone era of better, and it’s used to lament the sorry state of what we have today. It is a phrase that can be applied to many areas of our lives: architecture, art, furniture, tools. Boats? I would argue that they don’t make them like they used to. But, is that lamentable, or is it progress?

Progress, I think. With this concept in mind, as we enter another season of putting boats to bed for the winter, why do we winterize as we always have?
