The Swift Trawler 44 is the middle child in Beneteau’s Trawler line- up, which lives up to the swift
part of its name with an 18-knot cruise
speed, and a 24-knot top end, powered by twin 300-hp Volvo diesels.
Though larger than the 42-foot model,
it retains similar fuel efficiency at just
better than a nautical mile per gallon at 18 knots. This new model features an expanded wheelhouse and
flybridge, both enlarged by three feet
in length, thanks to a change to the forward window design. The deck is also
16 inches wider than the prior model.

Sea Ray introduced the new 410 in a brief ceremony at the Ft. Lauderdale
show, and a line formed almost
immediately after the unveiling. This new 410 is available
with or without Zeus pod drives
connected to the Cummins diesels, and in soft-top, hard-top,
or fully enclosed hardtop with
a sunroof. In addition, you can
get it in a two-stateroom, two-head configuration, or you can
have a foldaway dinette instead
of the second stateroom.
TIARA 4300 OPEN
Pods, pods, pods: Whether ZF, IPS, or Zeus, it seems every builder has caught the pod bug. And
for good reason. Tiara unveiled their
new 4300 in 2010 and they were back
in Lauderdale with a 4300 sporting
Zeus drives. This new version reaches
the same speeds as the conventionally driven 4300, but uses smaller
diesels for greater efficiency. Plus, a
new exhaust configuration dropped
the noise levels four decibels. Add the
skipper-friendly joystick controls, and
you’ve made a good boat even better.
From $998,200 with Cummins 600-
hp diesels and the Zeus pod drives.
Same speeds, less fuel and
noise are the advantages of
the new Zeus-driven version of
the 4300 Open.
