Groupe Beneteau Asia-Pacific and dealer Simpson Marine hosted the two-day Boating Rendez-Vous in Hong Kong on Wednesday and Thursday (November 11 and 12). The event showcased seven Beneteau and Lagoon models at Aberdeen Boat Club’s Middle Island site, from 10am-5pm each day.


The models comprised Oceanis 35.1 and 46.1 sailing yachts and Antares 7 and 8 motorboats from Beneteau, along with Lagoon 42, 46 and 50 sailing catamarans. The Lagoon 46, which was displayed by the clubhouse, is the successor to the best-selling 450 and was only premiered in 2019.
