SYDNEY INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW 2018 POWER ROUNDUP

Five days of spectacular sunshine, two Australian premieres and an award-winning display – what a fantastic time we had at Sydney International Boat Show this year.

Thank you to all the boat lovers and Beneteau owners who stopped by to take a look at our Power display. We love the chance to show you around our boats and it was great to connect with you all in person.

AWARD-WINNING DISPLAY

Here’s what Flagstaff Marine Director, Graham Raspass, said when asked about the highlights.

“We had record attendance this year, with over 2,400 registered visitors to our Sail and Power stands. The Australian premiere of the Gran Turismo 50 and Swift Trawler 35 were very popular with our guests.

It was fantastic to see so many owners join us for the Beneteau Owners’ Cocktail Party on Saturday night.”

“We were delighted to have so many senior Beneteau team members join us all the way from France, including: Gianguido Girotti – joint General Manager, Damien Jacob – Oceanis Product Manager and Vianney Guezenec – Sales Director Asia Pacific Beneteau.

We are now busy with follow-up sea trials that have already led to new orders with many more in the pipeline, making this year’s Sydney International Boat Show one of our most successful yet.”

Fast, fun and great looking – the NEW Gran Turismo 50 has it all. Beneteau has really shaken up the world of sport cruisers with this powerful, charismatic and luxurious power boat. The Volvo IPS 600 engines deliver immense power at a top speed of 28 knots in superb comfort, thanks to Beneteau’s Air Step 2® technology.

Compliments Flowed

Compliments Flowed

We received lots of compliments on the incredible space and light on board. Our visitors were also blown away by the Gran Turismo 50’s premium finishes and ‘super yacht worthy’ features. They loved the fully retractable sunroof, built in sun-lounges and BBQ, tender garage and of course everyone’s favourite – the submersible swim platform.

We were also really happy to hear so many people say the Gran Turismo 50 was very competitively priced. Making the inaccessible accessible to all is a core value at Beneteau and it is incredibly rewarding to know that at Flagstaff we are a part of delivering the best value luxury motor yachts and cruisers on the water today!

Australian Premiere - Swift Trawler 35

Australian Premiere - Swift Trawler 35

The Swift Trawler 35 made a great impression on our Boat Show visitors. We had lots of compliments about the versatility of the onboard space. With the flybridge, forward sunbeds, lower deck and saloon wrapped in panoramic windows there is heaps of room for friends and family.

As Flagstaff’s Graham Raspass says, “The Swift Trawler 35 blends traditional lines and unrivalled seaworthiness with modern technology and spacious layout and is the perfect live-aboard for Australian coastal and harbour cruising.”

Flybridge is a winner

Flybridge is a winner

Without a doubt, it’s the 360-degree views and extra entertaining space on the Swift Trawler 35’s flybridge that steals hearts. But this cruiser is just as remarkable below the waterline as above.

Beneteau’s innovative semi-planing hull, a remarkable feat of engineering, allows the Swift Trawler 35 to knife through just about any swell, delivering on performance without compromising on comfort and safety. We currently have a fantastic offer on the Swift Trawler 35 – click here for details.
