Cummins celebrates its progressive roots in yachting applications together with Beneteau. The Swift Trawler 48  is 14.74 metres long overall with a beam of 4.50 metres, and is powered by Cummins QSB6.7

Beneteau Swift Trawler chose Cummins

It’s a 6-cylinder in-line (BxS 107 x 124 mm), turbocharged and aftercooled, with high pressure common rail system. The 6.7 litre Diesel engine supplies up to 405 kW @ 3300 rpm (550hp) and it’s able to reduce by 80 percent the noise at idle. The Swift Trawler is equipped with a standard pair of Cummins QSB 6.7 litre 380hp engines that allows a top speed of 21 knots with the upgrade 425hp engines giving a top speed of 25 knots. So there is always plentiful reserve power available to take the boat beyond 20 knots should the need arise. 

Focus on the boat

The new Swift Trawler 48 has been placed appropriately in the 45+ foot passage maker category, this mid-range boat has a strikingly stylish profile which features the new stainless framed teak slat fashion plates – aligned with those seen on the new Grand Trawler 62 flagship. The aft cockpit can fit a folding table and two directors chairs which together with the large bench seat maximise the indoor/outdoor living space. Intelligent design features such as the foot pedal operated sliding flybridge stairs and starboard sidedeck acrylic “wind stopper” door and overhead handrail further enhance the functionality and comfort found in this area. The transom double gate opens onto a large swim platform with an optional hydraulic lifting system able to carry a 350 kg dinghy. Simple well-designed features such as the bathing ladder with swimming pool handrails ensure there is no easier way to enjoy the delights of the sea.

FPT Industrial: let’s go, XC13

The XC13 surely sounds agnostic in FPT Industrial’s unofficial nomenclature; it comes, indeed, with a tripartite certification: Euro 6E (winking an eye at the upcoming Euro 7), methane gas and also biofuel, with a link to hydrogen.
