China Rendez-vous 2017 – Asia’s premium luxury lifestyle event – took place from December 8th-11th, 2017 in Hainan, China. This annual occasion gathers a wide range of high-lifestyle goods and brands together, creating an unrivaled pageant “Where Lifestyle and Luxury Meet”. As an active supporter of the region’s sailing events and lifestyle shows, Beneteau Asia Pacific presented its very own Pavilion, including an all-star fleet of 12 models from the Beneteau Group, including Beneteau Sailboats, Beneteau Powerboats, Lagoon, Monte Carlo Yachts, Four Winns, and Scarab.

Beneteau presented a stunning line-up from both its sailing and power boat ranges, including the Monte Carlo 6, the Swift Trawler 44, the Barracuda 9, the Oceanis 48, and the Oceanis 55. The brand new Swift Trawler 44 – fast and highly seaworthy, and designed for ocean cruising – attracted wide acclaim during the show.

The Lagoon 450 represented the Lagoon brand this year.

Four Winns – purveyor of luxurious, highly-customized open motorboats, had four models on display: the Horizon 350, the Horizon 290, the Horizon 210, and the Vista 275.

Jet boat specialist Scarab exhibited the 195 Open ID model.

Meanwhile, the timeless classic Monte Carlo Yachts 70 was also on display.

On the first day of the 4-day event, Beneteau Asia Pacific hosted a press conference for media and partners, to announce the Group’s new-season launches.

A celebratory Beneteau Night cocktail party was hosted on December 9th for Beneteau owners and partners. This annual event features fine food, wine, and great music, and is growing in popularity every year. On the same night, Beneteau was named Favorite Brand of the Year at the Fashion Power Awards ceremony. 

The Beneteau Pavilion was made possible thanks to generous support from our local dealers Simpson Marine, Visun, Vastar, and Liefeng.
