Swift are committed to the highest quality construction standards and equally committed to providing the safest boats possible. Every boat Swift builds has enclosed bow and stern compartments. The under seat deck area is also enclosed for improved buoyancy, with a bulkhead for every 2 rowing spaces, meaning that even if the hull is holed, water can only enter one part of the boat. It was also safety that determined the choice of standard boat colour. A capsized white boat being relatively easy to recognise.

Swift have a purpose built 20m long tank at the factory for buoyancy testing. Swift boats surpass FISA buoyancy requirements and guidelines.
