Beneteau to showcase extensive range including three new
Beneteau is gearing up to unveil three new models at the
2012 PSP Southampton Boat Show as part of the extensive power and
sail range it will be exhibiting from 14 to 23 September.
Beneteau is taking over an entire pontoon to showcase its inboard
and outboard powerboat ranges, as well as offering a large
hospitality suite. This will effectively create an on-the-water
Beneteau village of 14 powerboats on display.
The sailing yachts will be on land and will consist of 9 boats and
will include the new Sense 46, expanding the popular Sense range.
This new addition will give keen sailors the choice between four
unique models (43’, 46', 50' and 55') providing an intelligently
designed, comfortable cruising monohull.
Extending its fishing range, Beneteau will also be launching its
Barracuda 7, the latest addition to the successful Barracuda brand,
which has raised the bar for sport fishing vessels since its launch
last year. The Barracuda range has been well received by
recreational fishermen around the world from the fjords of Northern
Europe, to the Mediterranean and the US coasts.
Beneteau will also continue its revolution of the trawler segment
of the market with the launch of the Swift Trawler 50. Created in
2003, the Swift Trawler redefined the concept of the traditional
trawler. Beneteau gave careful consideration to life onboard and
style, in addition to performance and energy efficiency. Ten years
after the launch of the initial four models from 34’ to 52’ and
their subsequent success, the Beneteau Trawler 50 will also be on
display at the Southampton Boat Show.
The range on display will include a number of the Beneteau
powerboats used at the London 2012 Olympic Games. As an official
supplier to LOCOG (the London Organising Committee of the Olympic
and Paralympic Games), Beneteau provided a fleet of 23 boats worth
over£4 million to accommodate referees, journalists, organisers and
VIPs including royalty during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“We’re looking forward to showcasing the Beneteau range at the PSP
Southampton Boat Show including some of our Olympic legacy fleet
and three exciting new models in the sail, fishing and trawler
sectors. It will provide an excellent opportunity to see our
quality boats in one venue, and our team is proud to be exhibiting
such a great selection of popular models,” François Renault, UK
Sales Manager, Beneteau, said.
The Beneteau power and sail range can be viewed at the PSP
Southampton Boat Show in the Beneteau village pontoon, on berths
M419/M431 and on land at stand number F016.
