New Owner Training Delivery Beneteau Swift Trawler 44
The Swift Trawler 44 sits at the dock in Charleston before we come aboard to start the training and delivery to Jacksonville FL.
Additional Images
Rick and Terri are proud new owners of a 44 foot Beneteau Swift Trawler. They purchased her in Charleston and needed to bring her home to Jacksonville FL but had never owned a boat of this size. So they invited Captain Chris aboard for a hands-on training delivery.

These photos tell a small part of the story. Decisions involving tides, currents and weather are all important when planning a trip and Captain Chris was their cruising coach through it all!

Check out the video clip as they round the buoy in the sound just below Jekyll Island GA. Yahoo!

Cool weather and foggy mornings were standard fare for this trip. Good thing the lower helm was comfortable.
Every crew member should understand what it takes to drive the boat. Terri takes the helm and learns about the importance of navigation in the ICW.
The chart shows a bridge with an expected 24 ft clearance at high tide....
....hmmmmmm. Seems the tide is higher than usual! Even the speed sign is partially under water.
A wake from a passing boat has pushed waves up onto this fuel dock. The tide is impressive today!
This bridge was in a state of repair (disrepair?) and only one leaf would open.
The sun is finally shining! Winter in Florida is fleeting but a boater must respect the north winds that can pop up.
This happy couple learned to work well together aboard their new Beneteau Swift Trawler 44. Just Ask Captain Chris!
