In late 2018, BENETEAU completed the renewal of the First range, with the launch of four small sport boats.
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.

Filling thirteen halls and with more than 2,000 exhibitors, Boot Dusseldorf can rightly claim title to, ” World’s Largest Boat Show.”
The Boot 2019 set a new record: almost 2,000 exhibitors from 73 countries presented their products on over 2.3 million square feet of exhibit space to about 250,000 water sports enthusiast (boot 2018: 247,000 visitors) from more than 100 nations. These results confirm boot’s position as one the leading event for this sector worldwide.
We were there to represent Lagoon Catamarans (Lagoon 46 world premieres) and Beneteau (Oceanis 30.1 world premieres).
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.
The Lagoon team will be expecting you on board a vast catamaran with unmatched clarity to launch the 46! Discover Lagoon’s latest born during the world premiere, at the Boot in Düsseldorf from 19th to 27th January 2019 on the stand: Hall 15 site A44.

You can also visit the 40 in Düsseldorf. A new generation Lagoon with increased style and performances.

The “Yachts & Yachting Awards” and “Sailing Today Awards” joined forces to become the “British Yachting Awards”. This election, open to the public, allows all boating fans to vote for their favourite boats.
