The Beneteau Powerboats Division is preparing Beneteau's latest Swift Trawler 34, appropriately named The Greatest Loop, for her maiden voyage around The Great Loop, beginning May 15 in Annapolis, Md., and returning in September.

The Swift Trawler 34 is a performance-based cruising boat offering exceptional fuel efficiency, stability and maneuverability, the company said.

The Greatest Loop, hull 202, was built at Beneteau’s trawler factory in Noirmoutier-en-I’lle, France, and arrived March 23 in the U.S.

“While many have taken the pilgrimage around The Great Loop, we’re unaware of another boatbuilder who has assembled a team of equipment suppliers, associations, dealers and publications willing to commit the time and resources required to bring the journey in this fashion to others interested in learning more about the adventure and the cruising lifestyle in general,” Beneteau Powerboats vice president of sales and marketing Laurent Fabre said in a statement.

Audiences interested in following her journey can participate in the expedition with Beneteau and its partners at its website and on Facebook.
