Meet Beneteau at the Shangai International Boat Show

As an active supporter of the region’s sailing events and boat shows, Beneteau will be presenting three popular models – the Antares 8 OB, the Oceanis 41.1, and the First 22 at the show, backed by its local dealer Sea Dragon Yachts.
The Antares 8 OB will have her Asia debut at the CIBS 2018. A multi-functional day boat, she is agile, powerful, and versatile – ideal for fishing trips and comfortable cruising as well as exploring new shores. She has a flared-out hull for improved sailing performance and even better handling, while her design makes living on board a real pleasure.
