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

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.

The Gran Turismo 50 nominated European motor boat 2018 !

The new Gran Turismo 50 is the flagship of the range, and, from hull to deck, she is the epitome of the sport cruiser spirit with a very distinctive look. Hardtop or Sportfly, the Gran Turismo flagship is full of surprising innovations. A sensational and thrilling sport cruiser, the distinctive new Gran Turismo 50 has plenty to appeal to anyone with a passion for beautiful objects.

Beneteau Seayo Control – New onboard assistant

The new Seayo Control is making a debut on leisure craft. Equipping the recent Gran Turismo 50, this technology operates many of the boat’s functions and is intuitive and easy to use. Inspired by the onboard computers of the car industry, this innovation confirms Beneteau’s commitment to simplifying sailing and opening it up to everyone.

Simple and safe

Seayo Control can be accessed via the boat’s navigation screen or a tablet connected to the boat’s Wi-Fi router and it unites all the functions onboard on the same web interface. Completely secure, this system is based on multiplexing and has been present on racing boats for a number of years. Who knows whether Armel Le Cleac’h would have won the last Vendée Globe without the help of this valuable onboard assistance.

This important step towards simplifying the use of boats makes navigation, makes you feel safe and enhances your lifestyle aboard. It can be compared with the way in which onboard computers in cars have enhanced the pleasure of driving.
