This beautiful motor yacht – a Beneteau Swift Trawler 42 provides a superb platform for either training courses or private or corporate luxury charters. Below decks she offers truly spacious accommodation in two cabins and a combined wheelhouse and saloon with panoramic views and sliding doors onto the aft deck. The extensive protected deckspace is particularly impressive, including a huge lower aft deck, a long, wide and flat foredeck, and a flybridge with its own ample aft deck. Movement around the boat is safe and easy with solid guardrails – no clambering around curved plastic surfaces as on many powerboats.

Santo Cristo was launched in 2007. She is stable, fast and seaworthy, but with responsive twin diesels and a bow thruster she is also perfectly manoeuvrable. Needless to say she is beautifully appointed throughout and equipped with state of the art electronics including large plotters, radar, AIS etc.
