For the 5th year running BENETEAU is an official Vendée Globe supplier, making a fleet of 18 motorboats available to the organizers, made up of the latest Swift Trawler, Antarès, Gran Turismo and Barracuda line models.
Five Swift Trawler (30, 35, 41 and 47), one Gran Turismo 36, one inboard Antares and five Barracuda 9, six Barracuda 8, together with their driver and co-driver, will be used to transport the race committee and the accredited press to the start and finish lines and will carry approximately 150 people. Responsive, powerful and easy to manoeuvre pilothouse boats have been chosen to provide safe conduct in the often rough weather conditions at this time of year.
The Group’s historic trademark, Beneteau has been a pioneer for recreational boating from the outset. With its world-leading ranges and iconic products, nearly 45 models offer diverse, high-performance capabilities. With one single idea in mind: innovating in terms of both boats and processes to enable as many people as possible to realize their dreams, making the avant-garde accessible.
