Excess, a Groupe Beneteau brand, has announced that several of its catamarans are scheduled for delivery across Asia-Pacific in 2022, including to Japan and China.
In March, an Excess 11 is scheduled to arrive in Sydney through Australian dealer Flagstaff Marine, with the city hosting an Excess Tour with two models from March 5-7. Meanwhile, Excess 11 and Excess 12 catamarans are expected in Tahiti in separate deliveries in the first half of the year.
In August, an Excess 12 is expected to arrive in Yokohama in Japan, where last year the Excess 11 model made its Asia debut at the Japan International Boat Show. Another Excess 12 is scheduled to arrive in Auckland in New Zealand in September through 36° Brokers, while an Excess 11 is set for Hainan – China’s ‘Hawaii’ – in December via Vastar Yachts.
