BENETEAU's story began in 1884 in Croix-de-Vie, in the West of France. That year, Benjamin BENETEAU (1859-1928) decided to create the boatyard whose eponym would give birth to the first fishing boats.
130 years later, his visionary spirit is still central to BENETEAU's philosophy. His heritage is a unique vision of sailing and a perpetual desire to innovate.
BENETEAU conceives, designs and builds sailing yachts and motorboats to match to everyone's sailing dreams. From the design office to the 400 dealers throughout the world, 2,500 employees work to offer high-performing, safe, comfortable and elegant boats, together with impeccable service.
BENETEAU now has 80,000 owners on all the world's seas and ranks as a global leader in the building of pleasure boats.
