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.

Broker Comments

We have known this boat since she was new and can recommend her as huge value for money. "Beneteau, one of the world's biggest boatbuilders, and Farr Yacht Design, one of the world's most successful racing design offices, make a formidable team. The Beneteau First 44.7, is a prime example of what two such powerhouses can produce. Those who have sailed or owned a Beneteau will feel right at home on the First 44.7, as will those who have experience sailing Farr designs. The boat is comfortable to the point of opulence below and the sailing qualities are exemplary." Boat test report, xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
