Beneteau event highlights in January

Leading a good start into the New Year, several events were happened across Asia-Pacific in January, from Swift Trawler Owner Rendezvous and Owners Rally at the lovely seaside winery in New Zealand to the Clearwater Bay Boat Show in China, great occasions to connect more Beneteau owners and sailing enthusiasts in our region.


Organised by our dealer in Auckland, New Zealand-36 Degree Brokers, Swift Trawler Owners Rendezvous and Beneteau Owners Rally held together on January 21st, 2023 were a huge success with a turnout of approximate 75 people.

The fleet included the new Swift Trawler 48 which was also the premiere in New Zealand, two Swift Trawler 41s, one Swift Trawler 35 and one Swift Trawler 34.

Guests were delighted to be able to enjoy the cruising from Auckland to Man O’War Bay under a pleasant summer weather condition.

Then the crowd dropped the anchor and spent an afternoon at the Mudbrick vineyard, having some beach games and a nice beachfront wine tasting experience at the picturesque Man O’War Bay on Waiheke, boasting one of the country’s best wineries.


Clearwater Bay Boat Show 2023 was kicked off on January 24th to 27th in Sanya, celebrating the Year of the Rabbit with the locals after the ease of Covid restrictions. Beneteau took an active presence at the show with three popular models on display including the Oceanis 51.1, the Antares 9 and the Antares 8. Great thanks to our local dealer Simpson Marine for organizing such an amazing display.
