The Flyer 10 will be shown at the Düsseldorf Boot

Posted by

A few months after the launch of the Flyer 8, the Flyer 10 will be shown at the Düsseldorf Boot and will extend the Beneteau outboard range perfectly. Ready to embark up to 11 passengers and fitted out so that you can spend a few extra nights at sea, this new dayboat bordering on a sport cruiser allows a variety of exciting programmes.With greater thrills, technology and comfort, the Flyer 10 promises so much more than a standard dayboat.

Never has the BENETEAU boatyard taken things so far and given so much consideration to an outboard powerboat.

The Figaro Beneteau 3 has just won the title of “Best new sailboat under 35 feet” and “Best sailboat overall” at the NEWPORT International Boat Show in the United States.

These cross-Atlantic awards confirm the international success of the foiling monohull, designed by VPLP architects.

SAIL Magazine has nominated the Figaro Beneteau 3 and the Oceanis 46.1 for the title of best boat of the year. We will know the result in a few weeks, after the autumn boat shows.

Barley a year after the Oceanis 51.1 was launched, the boat destined to take over from the Oceanis 45, has just been unveiled in Australia at the Sydney International Boat Show.

Three other BENETEAU boats were also premiered with the Oceanis 46.1 on Australian soil :

The Oceanis 51.1

The Gran Turismo 50

The Swift Trawler 35

The show was held at Darling Harbour. For 4 days, visitors admired BENETEAU’s new boats in the magnificent surroundings of Cockle Bay.

Gianguido GIROTTI, BENETEAU’s general manager, the BENETEAU ASIA PACIFIC teams and the BENETEAU network of dealers in Australia were there to answer questions from journalists and the general public.

First held in the Mediterranean Sea, the second of the yearly Swift Trawler rendez-vous, exclusively for Swift Trawler owners, took place in Brittany.

With seventeen boats expected and smooth organization by the Beneteau teams and the dealer Armorique Diffusion, the meeting had all the ingredients of a friendly weekend of shared experiences. In this way, the event reflects the mentality of a community of long-distance cruisers.

The boats met up at La-Trinités-sur-Mer’s marina on a gloriously sunny day, before setting off on this marvellous three-day trip. The marina is still considered a pinnacle of sailing, thanks to the famous skippers who began their careers here.

« The Sea Drive Concept » by Beneteau & Peugeot

Posted by

Jointly developed by Peugeot Design Lab and Beneteau’s design office, the motorboat driving concept called the “Sea Drive Concept” is now being shown worldwide.

Following the recent boat shows (in Paris and Düsseldorf), the demonstrator was shown at the 88th International Motor Show in Geneva and more recently the Beijing show in China, the biggest automobile marketplace in the world.

The Sea Drive concept* was shown to the public on a brand new stand, along with other items designed and produced by the Peugeot Design Lab. It was given pride of place in Geneva, close to the lion monument that is both the symbol of the car brand and its ambassador.

*The Sea Drive Concept, developed for BENETEAU by PEUGEOT, explores the boat driving station of the future. It combines the intuitive handling of the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® (small steering wheel, head-up display with digital touchscreen) with Ship Control® smart technology. This on-board computer, developed by BENETEAU, is an aid to navigation and life on board.
