You can enjoy a variety of activities on a sailing yacht or motorboat trip

When you own a boat, there are several leisure activities you can enjoy. Are you considering a trip to sea shortly? BENETEAU has a few ideas for leisure activities you can enjoy on your next sailing yacht or motorboat trip.

A water sport outing on a en Flyer 9 SUNdeck

If you have a boat that is equipped with a powerful engine, like a Flyer 9 SUNdeck with two 250 hp engines, you can indulge in a variety of towed water sports : 

  • Wakeboarding and wakesurfing,
  • Water-skiing and monoskiing,
  • Water tubing.

These water sports really appeal to surf lovers and thrill seekers.  You can enjoy them at sea, on a river or a lake, if the weather conditions are right (light breeze and very little swell). 

If you are not very experienced at water sports, start with a simple activity like tubing, before moving onto water-skiing and wakeboarding. 

If you do not wish to invest in the equipment, it is good to know that it can be rented out for the day. 

Lastly, if you are going to enjoy a towed water sport, remember to observe the following safety rules:

  • The boat must fly an orange safety flag,
  • The person being towed must wear a life jacket,
  • In addition to the boat’s driver, there must be a second person on board to keep an eye on the person being towed.


 Flyer range offers great thrills !   

A stand-up paddle tour from an Oceanis 40.1

In the last few years, we have been seeing an increasing number of paddle board boards floating behind sailing yachts. The reason for this is twofold. They are both an enjoyable sports activity, and a means of transport. If you have an inflatable paddle board when you set out to sea on an Oceanis 40.1, why not enjoy paddling boarding in the vicinity of your anchorage or using it to get to the beach?

Sunbathing on the new Antares 11 Fly

What if the best activity at sea was simply doing nothing? Drop anchor in a quiet inlet and enjoy lazing in the sun on the foredeck of your Antares 11 Fly, or a family meal in the shade of the bimini top.
