Beneteau’s line-up of sailing yachts and motorboats includes four world and French premieres, while sister brands Lagoon and Excess will show new sailing catamarans at Port Canto.
Beneteau First 36
Beneteau will stage the world premieres of the First 44 and flagship Oceanis Yacht 60 sailing yachts at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival. The French builder will also hold the French debuts of the First 36 and Swift Trawler 48, the latter unveiled globally at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
First 44 and Oceanis Yacht 60 will be among seven Beneteau sailing yachts at Port Canto including the Oceanis 34.1, Oceanis 40.1, Oceanis 46.1 and Oceanis Yacht 54.
Beneteau Swift Trawler 48
In Vieux Port, the Swift Trawler 48 will be among nine Beneteau motorboats including the Swift Trawler 41 and flagship Grand Trawler 62, which made its Asia debut earlier this year. All four Gran Turismo models (32, 36, 41, 45) will be on display along with the Antares 11 Fly and Flyer 9 Sundeck.
In Port Canto, sister brands Lagoon and Excess will also show new models. The Lagoon 51 will make its Cannes debut, having premiered at April’s International Multihull Show, while the Lagoon 42, 46, 55, Sixty 7 and flagship Seventy 7 will complete the six-strong line-up of sailing catamarans.
The world premiere of the Excess 14 will be another Groupe Beneteau highlight, with the new twin-helm sail cat flanked by the Excess 11 and flagship Excess 15.
