BRITTANY SWIFT TRAWLER RENDEZ-VOUS

Posted by

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 greatest Croatian Lagoon Escapade – Lagoon Catamaran

From 28th April to 1st May 2018, the Nautika Centar Nava team, who represents Lagoon in Croatia, organised an exceptional Lagoon Escapade!

This was the 7th Croatian edition of the Lagoon Escapades. This year, 22 Lagoon catamarans and almost 200 catamaran enthusiasts got together.

With their partners Yachts Magazine and Club Lagoon, the Croatians invited Lagoon owners to exceptional locations, perfect for relaxing and celebrating: the Maslinica area and Vis Island.

On the menu: sun, fun and sailing. The owners took part in a friendly regatta, then in stand up paddle runs before enjoying unlimited swimming!

At nightfall, these catamaran enthusiasts enjoyed food specialities, accompanied by Croatian wines! The Nautika Centar Nava team had prepared a prize giving ceremony and an original lottery where all contestants won a prize. The luckiest went home with a 500 euro giftcard to spend in the Lagoon Shop! What a festive evening to end this event in style!

According to a contestant: “The Croatian Lagoon Escapade is a surprise each year and is always incredible! The regattas and festivities are always a success! We can’t wait for the next edition!”

First Lagoon Escapade in Philippines

Posted by

On 6 April, I hope you did not miss the first Lagoon Escapade in the Philippines! Europa Yachts team, the Lagoon importer of the country, put every effort to create a great event… Mindoro Island (meaning the gold mine in Spanish) was the beautiful landscape of this very first edition, this is where they organized a welcome cocktail for the Lagoon owners, and a party to introduce the festivities, get to know each other and simply have fun!

The program of the next day was composed by a sailing morning across the Verde Island passage, to reach a beautiful private cove, truly appreciate by the owners. A piece of paradise: with reggae music, fresh fruit juices, and crystal clear water. The owners even got the chance to enjoy a helicopter flight above the island! The evening ending with a breath-taking sunset, a delicious barbecue, a whisky tasting and gifts distribution. In brief, it was a true celebration of the Lagoon attitude!

« 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.
