The New Kid on the Block – Introducing: The BENETEAU Grand Trawler 62

Born out of BENETEAU’s Swift Trawler line, the BENETEAU Grand Trawler 62 is the evolution of a proven yacht offering comfort, style and long-distance cruising in a sleek and practical design. At 62’ in length (19m), this BENETEAU trawler packs a powerful punch with a range of 1,045 nautical miles at 9 knots with 10% fuel reserve and a top speed of 20 knots when required.

YATCO recently sat down with the team behind the BENETEAU Grand Trawler 62 to learn more about this iconic new addition to their range.

Tell us about the inspiration behind this BENETEAU Grand Trawler model. 

Having built over 1,800 BENETEAU Swift Trawlers since the launch of the range – making it the best-selling trawler in the history of leisure powerboating – BENETEAU decided to partner with industry heavyweights MICAD (naval architects) and Nauta Design (for the interior and deck design) to create a truly remarkable flagship that combines autonomy, comfort, build quality and style.

Though her size keeps this BENETEAU Grand Trawler manageable to operate doublehanded, her volumes and features give her the feel of a much larger trawler, with a luxurious midship owner suite, stunning guest cabins, an enormous flybridge and great ease of movement throughout.

Why is this size BENETEAU trawler perfect for those looking to do casual trips, all the way up to those looking to spend extended periods at sea? 

They say the best boats are the boats you actually use, and we kept this in mind from the initial drawings to the first completed trawler hull.

Indeed, simplicity and ease of use have always been cornerstones of the BENETEAU brand, and this trawler model does a great job condensing all of the technology aboard to a few key interfaces that allow for easy maneuvering at the dock and efficient monitoring underway – without forgetting all the details that soften the everyday life, from light switches to chargers to the perfect feel of a comfortable couch.

The BENETEAU Grand Trawler 62 can be taken out on a whim for sunset cruises, or carefully outfitted to explore distant places – it’s a boat you actually use.

What special efforts were made to the BENETEAU Grand Trawler 62 design to ensure the utmost comfort while cruising long distances? 

The highly efficient, seaworthy, full displacement hull was designed by MICAD to provide exceptional autonomy yet be capable of speeds of over twenty knots when required. An ergonomic central raised helm station – with convenient access to the galley – offers the captain outstanding visibility and impeccable control, while the guests can choose between the expansive flybridge and salon areas in search of the perfect place to lounge and relax. Below, the cabins have great natural light, airflow, and layout, with stunning master and VIP staterooms that will make you call this Beneteau trawler home in no time.

What type of owner is the BENETEAU Grand Trawler 62 ideally suited for?

We built the BENETEAU trawler model for the owner who wants to go far, efficiently, comfortably, and in style. We built it for the owner who wants the savoir-faire of a 140-year-old company – the experience, but also the innovation that is needed to drive things forward. We built it for people who love to explore, who love life on the water, who love to make memories on the water.
