UK brokerage Ancasta is to host the world launch of the Beneteau Swift Trawler 47 at Southampton Boat Show next month. The show, which runs from September 14-23, will also see the UK debut of the Beneteau Gran Turismo 50 Sportfly.

The Swift Trawler 47 is the latest in the new generation of Swift Trawlers from Beneteau. Designed for travelling with the family, it boasts spacious interiors, a large flybridge and open deck plan, as well as a large swim platform.

Wide walkways and handrails ensure those on board feel safe moving around. Already easy to handle with twin engines, the Swift Trawler 47 can be fitted with joysticks to make manoeuvring in the harbour even easier.

The Beneteau Gran Turismo 50 Sportfly, based on Beneteau’s flagship GT cruiser, features the latest technology including the on-board Ship Control system. Powered by Volvo IPS600 on an AirStep II planing hull, driving sensations are second to none with the bonus of economy and manoeuvrability of IPS.

The tender garage, designed to fit a Williams Minijet, is a feature not often seen on 50ft boats. The Beneteau Gran Turismo 50 Sportfly is available in both two or three cabin versions.

Ancasta will also be presenting a new range from Prestige, including the Prestige 630F and new ‘S’ line version of the Prestige 460, and a Lagoon 630.

In total, the company will be displaying six models from the Beneteau Power range, eight in the Beneteau Sail range, four Prestige motoryachts and three Lagoons.
