Beneteau Sailboat History

The Beneteau adventure began more than a century ago on the quays of Croix-de-Vie in Vendée, France.
For more than 130 Years, the core of the boatyard’s profession has been innovation and a passion for yachting.

In the beginning, there was a catalyst and a vision. Then came the building, which crossed over many and kindled considerable energy and risk taking. From the first sardine boat to the latest Monte Carlo, the shipbuilding tradition has considerably advanced the technologies and expertise of our company. To this day, Benjamin Bénéteau’s pioneering spirit still stands as the strongest driving force behind our 2,500 co-workers.

Today, more than 100,000 Beneteau yachts have sailed the seas of the world. Our growing number of keen owners, share the same values of performance, modernity, safety and respect at the helm. BJ Marine is your exclusive Beneteau International dealer providing a large stock of new and used Beneteau lines, contact us for more information

The Oceanis 30.1 is easy to sail but lively to steer and promises new experiences and thrills. This robust little smart cruiser is small enough to trail, opening up endless possibilities for sailing on lakes and rivers, as well as coastal sailing and high sea adventures. With unbeatable living space for its size and a focus on simplicity of use, the smallest model of the cruising range is nevertheless stylish, and fast.

The First Yacht 53 is a high-end sailing yacht marrying luxury and performance, making her comfortable and easy to move around.
