Swift Trawlers continued

Easy to dock with standard bow and stern thrusters. So easy in fact that the term child's play comes to mind. The seasoned mariner may balk at such mod cons but the reality is that features like this make everyone a better ship handeler and the end result is increased control and a way wayyyyyy lower stress level on board for all crew members. A large fly bridge lends itself to great visibility underway and a fantastic spot to survey the the scene at anchor.
Exceptional visibility from the lower helm makes this the hotspot in inclement weather, carry on through the salon and out to the covered aft deck with more than enough seating room for yourself and your guests. The extended bridge deck would make it easy and economical to enclose this space for full on winter duty. Sounds like a new venue for Christmas on board. My time with this gem was brief but memorable never the less, a short jaunt from Harbour to Harbour and a bit of quiet time on board for contemplation sealed the deal. This is one great little cruiser; plenty of euro-flair, advanced thinking, great space planning, economical power, reliable systems and relatively affordable.
