Beneteau

Beneteau

Beneteau is easily the largest production builder of both sail and powerboats in the world. The French company has been turning out sailboats for decades, but lately they’ve added powerboats including trawlers, express boats, a small sportfisher, and a line of luxury yachts. Beneteau understands that today, boating is less about the boat and more about the boating experience—so Beneteau delivers fast, comfortable, easy-to-sail boats with a Euro-chic flair and continually evolving production processes. If you’ve chartered, chances are you’ve been on a Beneteau, and more Beneteau hulls have circumnavigated the globe than any other brand. Today, the power models including Grant Tourismo, Swift trawlers and Monte Carlo luxury cruisers, are coming on strong and deliver good value in every market segment.
