For the 4th consecutive edition Beneteau is an official Vendée Globe partner, making a fleet of 16 motorboats available to the organizers, made up of the latest Antares, Gran Turismo and Barracuda line models.
Five inboard Antares, one Gran Turismo 49 and ten twin-engine Barracuda 8s, 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 Beneteau boat brand based in Vendée, founded in 1884 by Benjamin Bénéteau, belongs to the Group by the same name and is now a global reference. With a highly efficient network of dealers worldwide, the boatyard offers a full range of sailing yachts and motorboats that are well known for their reliability and excellent sea-keeping. From Figaro-Bénéteau boats, designed for top-level racing, to elegantly comfortable cruising yachts, the boats developed by Beneteau always stand out for their innovative potential.
