Steeped in more than a century of history, the Beneteau brand of luxury boats is a legacy of Benjamin Bénéteau, a former cabin boy and military man who, in 1884, established his eponymous boatyard in the commune of Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, western France.
Since then, the French boat building company has maintained a culture of excellence and constant innovation. Simplicity and performance are two key principles adhered to by Beneteau’s naval architects and boat builders, who ensure that each sailboat and powerboat that sails out of their yard surpasses the highest standards of the luxury yachts industry.
Today, Philippine yachting enthusiasts can experience the elegant style and the reliable all-weather and all-latitude performance of Beneteau boats through Europa Yachts, the country’s leading authority in yachting.
Beneteau Boats: A Legacy of Innovation
After Beneteau Boatyard was established in 1884, the yard’s boat builders started making luggers, dundees, and smacks, which were popular fishing vessels in the late 19th century. These boats were optimized for performance and speed because during those days, the first fishing crews that got back to the harbor after days of fishing at sea got to sell their haul at the best prices possible. It was in 1909 when the yard designed its first engine-powered fishing boat, which was also the first of its kind in the region.
Throughout the years, Beneteau faced a series of challenges, the biggest of which were the First and Second World Wars. Beginning in the 1940s, however—with the great wars behind them— the Beneteau team then started going full steam, powering through the decades to emerge even stronger and more diversified than ever before. From the original boatyard sprung a larger parent organization called Groupe Bénéteau, which accomplished significant growth through expansion and acquisitions in the years to come.
Continuing the legacy of Benjamin Beneteau’s own brand of innovation, Beneteau today focuses on combining the latest in naval architecture, design, and technology to help and encourage sailors from all over the world to experience the beauty of the sea in ways they’ve never done before.
Beneteau Boats: Simply Beautiful, Incredibly Capable
When it comes to sailboat design, Beneteau focuses on simplicity while placing emphasis on generous, sumptuous, and highly customizable spaces that have been constructed from the most luxurious materials. Particularly for the Oceanis Yacht 62, Beneteau worked with French naval architectural firm Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design and Italian designer Pierrangelo Andreani for a light and expansive New World design. The Oceanis 51.1, Sense 57, and Sense 51, among others, have also been designed by Racoupeau’s architects. Thanks to the different teams’ dedication to innovation and exemplary design, each Beneteau sailing yacht is guaranteed to be as stylish as it is seaworthy.
Meanwhile, Beneteau powerboats combine trendy luxury and all-out performance. Chic, sleek, spacious, and with powerful engines, these luxury motor boats cater to all types of boating and all kinds of sailors. From long and pleasurable cruises to quick excursions out in the sea—whether you’re the most laidback yachtsman or the most demanding boater— you can expect Beneteau powerboats to deliver a comfortable and safe experience on the water.
No matter the boat you choose—be it an elegant Oceanis, a high-spirited First, a powerful Barracuda, or a surprising Antares—you can expect only the highest level of style and performance from all Beneteau vessels.
