Discover the Beneteau Difference:

For 130 years Beneteau has been building boats with passion, expertise, and commitment in state of the art production factories. While other manufacturers hold on to the status quo, Beneteau’s engineers and designers keep innovating and improving. This means a fleet of practical, elegant and seaworthy boats. Beneteau’s commitment to advanced technologies and methods and internal rigorous standards produce yachts second to none in quality and durability.

When you invest in a Beneteau you are not just buying years of enjoyment, you’re buying peace of mind and a support network that follows you around the world. There are over 400 dealers worldwide, immediate access to parts and advice through the dealer network or the factories in France, America and Brazil. The Beneteau community of owners is the largest in the world. Wherever you travel you’re almost guaranteed to be among fellow Beneteau owners.

When you purchase your new Beneteau from an authorized dealer you get the newest three/seven-year warranty, one of the strongest and best in the industry. We look forward to answering all your questions.
