Beneteau Flyer 10’s Powerboat Thrills & Antares 9’s Sporty Cruising Light Up Southampton Boat Show With BJ Marine

Among the firsts BJ Marine have brought to the Southampton International Boat Show this week is the new Flyer 10.

The flagship of Beneteau’s dayboat range is really a powerboat under the skin, blending style and comfort — across four large living spaces — with thrills courtesy of its large outboard motor.

A distinctive feature of the the Flyer 10 is its ‘smart walkaround’ concept that combines the easy movement and safety advantages of the walkaround, but with just one asymmetric walkway to port, offering greater deck and cabin space.

The foredeck also features a vast three-place sun pad, and there is a fully fitted galley which means real meals while enjoying life on the open water.

Available to order now, the Flyer 10 is expected to be in high demand with limited build slots available during the September boat shows, both last week in Cannes and now in Southampton.

Also at the Beneteau Village SBS is the new Antares 9, which sets the stage for an exciting future of outboard sports cruisers.

The largest and sportiest to date from Beneteau’s Antares range, the 9 is the perfect boat for the couple or family who want a life onboard, says BJ Marine’s David Hoctor.

It’s also an incredibly popular option, sold out since launch in early 2018, but next available orders are coming on January 2020.

Contact BJ Marine for more, and to secure your access to the best deals on new Beneteau models, which include the UK debuts of the Oceanis 30.1 and Monte Carlo 52 cruiser.

With a wide range of boats to see in person — along with Conor Fogarty’s new foiling Figaro 3, Raw, on display — Ireland’s Beneteau distributors are part of what they describe as a “spectacular” at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show, which continues to this Sunday 22 September.
