The Beneteau Swift Trawler 34 is a small trawler, capable of trawler speeds of 7-8 knots, but able to get up on the plane and outrun any weather at 19 knots.  In 2012, Beneteau introduced the ST 34 to the US market, by sending it on the Great Loop. The adventure took place between  May and September of 2012, starting and ending in Annapolis.

The shape of the underbody, along with bow thruster, stern thruster and trim tabs make this vessel stable, maneuverable and comfortable.  Flybridge and interior helm stations make for comfortable cruising in all weather and the asymmetrical deck layout, with open side deck to port and covered side deck to starboard with high bulwarks and solid stainless steel life guards, for safe passage from cockpit to bow. 

The interior is light, with 360 degree visibility, thanks to windows all round. The windscreens each have a large wiper to keep them clear in inclement conditions.  There is plenty of room to move about in the salon and the accommodations up forward are extremely comfortable, with an enormous owner’s cabin, a head and a bunk cabin. The salon also has a very comfortable sleeper couch for two and allows easy flow from the decks to the interior as well as access to the engine compartment via a hinged hatch in the floor.

The single Cummins 425HP diesel engine sips fuel and makes this a really economical vessel to run. On ‘The Greatest Loop’ it was reported that the vessel used 5 gallons per hour at 11 knots.

Dreaming of the Irie Life ? Well here you go!


The interior is light, with fantastic visibility and ventilation thanks to the large windows forward, sliding windows down the sides and glass sliding doors at the rear. Entry can be made through the sliding door, from the cockpit, or on the starboard side, next to the lower helm.  The salon has a settee to starboard, with storage down the port side with a heavy-based table that can be situated wherever needed.  The settee folds out to form a double berth. Below the floor of the salon is a hatch which provides access to the spacious engine compartment.

Forward of the salon is the galley, to port and the lower helm, to starboard.  The Galley has a Force 10 2-burner propane cooktop and microwave as well as sink & fridge.  The helm has a double seat with fold-out foot rest.  Wheel and dashboard with all the instruments are easily visible and accessible as is the starboard side deck, from the sliding door.

Step down between the galley and helm to the sleeping quarters and head.  The head is to starboard, guest cabin with single bunk beds and storage is to port and the master cabin is in the bow. The forward cabin has  large storage closets port and starboard, a very large,  comfortable V-berth with shelves down either side.
