Our historyThe Beneteau adventure began in 1884 on the quays of Croix-de-Vie in Vendée.
For 130 years, the core of the Boatyard’s profession has been innovation and a passion for yachting. From the first sardine boat to the latest Monte Carlo, from the shipbuilding tradition to more advanced technologies, our expertise has grown. However, it is still the pioneering spirit of Benjamin Bénéteau that is the driving force behind our 2.500 co-workers.
Today, more than 80.000 Beneteau boats have sailed the seas of the globe. Steering them, their keen and demanding owners, with whom we share the same values of performance, modernity, safety and respect.To know more
