Video: PM Editor's First Impressions on the Beneteau Grand Trawler 62

Beneteau’s new flagship trawler is a major departure for the shipyard. Hop aboard with us and see why.

The Beneteau Grand Trawler 62 flagship made her North American debut at the Fort Lauderdale boat show with room to move and horsepower to spare. The shipyard’s new flagship trawler, however, is not just a bigger Swift Trawler. 

With a voluminous, full-body displacement hull that carries its 17-foot, 10-inch beam well forward, the new Grand Trawler 62 has dockside presence and purposeful styling—and as Passagemaker and Power & Motoryacht editors-in-chief Andrew Parkinson and Dan Harding get to see firsthand, she looks like a serious, weighty cruising boat, ready to go places.
