Next summer, the brand is preparing to launch the first First Yacht: 53 feet of sheer audacity and performance, perfectly in keeping with the new brand signature ‘Avant-garde in boating’. With 24,000 boats produced in nearly 40 years, some of which were real ‘winners’ an the recipients of some of the top international awards, BENETEAU is reinventing the legendary First range with a beautiful yacht, matching the desires of new customers who enjoy luxury high-performance yachting.

The First Yacht 53 will be launched officially at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2019.

On Saturday 19 January, the Oceanis 46.1  won the highly regarded title of European Yacht of the Year in the “Family Cruiser” category.

The suspense for the 19 yachts in the 5 categories competing for the European Yacht of the Year came to an end on Saturday 19 January. The panel of journalists from a group of European magazines gave its verdict at the “Flagship Night” ceremony, which was held within the walls of the Boot Düsseldorf.

The Oceanis 46.1 designed by Pascal Conq (Naval Architect) and Nauta Design (Deck and Interior Design), confirms the success of the new generation of Oceanis yachts. The panel stressed the yacht’s high performance and the incredible sensations at the helm.

For the third year running, a BENETEAU sailing yacht is one of the top boats awarded by the EYOTY jury.

New Oceanis 30.1 by Beneteau

“Small, yet oh so big !”

Championing ever more innovative boats for everyone is definitely Beneteau’s hallmark, and in this respect the new Oceanis 30.1 holds its promises across the board. The smallest yacht in Beneteau’s cruising range boasts trailability, incredible living space for her size and focuses on simplicity, yet she is as stylish and beautiful as ever. There’s a good chance that she will rank ‘best in class’ throughout her career. She will be unveiled in all her splendour at upcoming Boot Düsseldorf 2019.

Although it is rare to start with size when presenting boats, the new Oceanis 30.1 is an excep-tion. Her design is based on the balance between reducing the boat’s size and increasing the deck and interior space by precious centimetres, which really make the difference in terms of living space and comfort.

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.
