This new model is a mid-sized dayboat, offering both Cruising and Fishing versions. The cruising one targets people who look for onboard comfort and conviviality; while for the Fishing version, the rear benchseat is transformed to a fishing station equipped with professional-grade rod holders. In addition, a circulating livewell tank and three storage compartments under the cockpit sole are available to cater the practical needs.

Other models on display included the long-distance passenger maker Swift Trawler 41, the lush sports cruiser GT 32, the versatile family weekender Antares 9 and the popular sailboat model-Oceanis 40.1.



Sailing season is back again!

Beneteau has always been associated with activities driven by passion, team spirit and love of the sea. All these leads to the birth of BENETEAU CUP, a sailing rendezvous dedicated to BENETEAU owners across different countries.
