This Beneteau Swift Trawler 42,"MV Decorum" is regularly but lightly used, which reflects on only 700 hours at her gauges. She is nicely equipped with cruising essentials including a 9.5 KVa genset, comprehensive equipped galley, and an upgraded suite of navigation instrumentation and entertainment appliances. The practical layout of master suite with ensuite, and an additional guest double cabin which shares a day head, makes her ideal for lengthy family getaways, or weekends on the water with friends.

She is really the perfect vessel to explore the coastal passages, waterways, reefs, harbours, estuaries and river systems of our beautiful island nation.

"MV Decorum" combines performance and efficiency, and is the ideal vessel for either short overnight cruises, or more adventurous long range coastal exploration. She is designed to take you further faster, and appeals for her distinctive character, elegant comfort and roominess on board.

A well appreciated feature is the ease of movement about her decks, and the interior space is very well utilized, and focuses on an open plan design.

"MV Decorum" can cruise all day at better than 15 knots in comfort, and for those times when a turn of speed is required, 25 knots is available. Her waterline beam, just under 14 feet, accounts in part for the ease with which the boat achieves her impressibve performance. The secret of this fast trawler lies in the builder's combination of careful hull design, weight control and choice of efficient power plants. She is powered by twin 370 hp Yanmar six-cylinder turbo diesels. Her hull has a sharp entry and easily driven hull form. The yacht's draft, only 1.15 metres, combined with propellors that are partly recessed into shallow hull tunnels, allows practical access to generally shallower waters.
