Accolades aplenty for Beneteau at Shanghai Boat Show

4 May 2018 | Beneteau

Beneteau scooped up two major awards in the annual Asian Marine and Boating Awards Gala during the Shanghai International Boat Show last month. 

First in line for high praise was the Oceanis Yacht 62 which won Best Sailing Boat over 40ft. The first model in Beneteau’s Oceanis Yacht range has swept up multiple titles since her official reveal in 2016, and she continues to impress with her design features and innovative flourishes.

Second to receive recognition was the company itself, as Beneteau was dubbed ‘Best Brand Penetration in Asia’. Beneteau established its Asian Branch in 2005, and the first shipyard was founded in France over 130 years ago. Located in Hong Kong, the Beneteau Asia-Pacific office is another stronghold in the industry and conducts operations across the region.


The Shanghai International Boat Show took place from April 26 to 29 where Beneteau presented three models, the Antares 8 OB, the Oceanis 41.1, and the First 22. 

Beneteau continue to innovate across a range of sailing yachts and motorboats, from high-performing models designed for elite racing, to comfortable and elegant cruising yachts.
