Beneteau Not Exhibiting in London But Big Splash Planned for Paris and Düsseldorf Shows

#beneteau – One of Ireland's best selling boat ranges Beneteau who are also Europe's leading leisure boat manufacturer is preparing to showcase its extensive range of power and sailing yachts at the 2012 Salon Nautique International de Paris and the 2013 Boot Düsseldorf 44th International Boat Show but, like last year, the French boating giant will not be exhibiting at the London Boat Show.

'Beneteau have moved away from London because they can't justify the expense involved.  Instead the firm will have a huge presence in Paris and Dusseldorf' says Bernard Gallagher of BJ Marine, the Irish Beneteau distributor.

After providing the support boats for the memorable sailing events at the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and a successful 2012 PSP Southampton Boat Show where it unveiled three new models, Beneteau is looking forward to exhibiting its quality range at two of Europe's leading boat shows over the coming months.

At the 2012Salon Nautique International de Paris at the Porte de Versailles between 8 and 16 December 2012, Beneteau will be exhibiting a total of 28 boats comprising models from the First, Oceanis, Sense, Antares, Barracuda, Flyer HB, Montecarlo, Gran Turismo and Trawler ranges.

The Oceanis 55 will be on show for the first time at the Salon Nautique in Paris and also at Boot 2013 in Düsseldorf, providing the opportunity to view Beneteau's stunning new cruising yacht with clean modern lines and an extremely comfortable interior.

The Salon Nautique International de Paris is one of Europe's premier boat shows with 820 exhibitors displaying 800 boats including around 200 new models attracting more than 242,833 visitors in 2012. For ticket and travel information visit: www.salonnautiqueparis.com/GB

At Boot 2013 held at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from 19 to 27 January 2013, Beneteau will be showcasing 22 boats comprisingmodels from the First, Oceanis, Sense, Antares, Barracuda, Flyer HB,Monte Carlo, Gran Turismo and Trawler ranges.

The 14.95-metre (49' 1") Monte Carlo 5, the first model in the innovative Monte Carlo range of flybridge motor yachts, will be launched on 19 January at Boot 2013. The Monte Carlo project combines the French group'sindustrial expertise with the best in the tradition of Italian nautical design from Nuvolari & Lenard, and interior design from Pierangelo Andreani.

In 2012 theBoot Düsseldorf International Boat Show hosted 1,656 exhibitors from 62 countries attracting 250,500 visitors over nine days. With 17 exhibition halls dedicated to all things nautical it provides a ideal venue to view the Beneteau range alongside a full range ofequipment and accessories from all over Europe and beyond.

"After an extremely successful summer which included supplying support boats to LOCOG for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and a successful 2012 PSP Southampton Boat Show where we launched three new Beneteau models, we are looking forward to exhibiting our extensive range at Paris 2012 and Düsseldorf 2013. With excellent transport links from the UK, both events provide a perfect opportunity to view the Beneteau range at two of Europe's most prestigious boat shows," François Renault, Beneteau UK Sales Manager, said.

One of the new Beneteau models on show at Paris 2012 and Boot 2013 in Düsseldorf will be the Sense 46, expanding the popular Sense range. This new addition provides keen sailors with the choice between fourunique models (43', 46', 50' and 55') in the intelligently designed, comfortable cruising monohull.

The Barracuda 7, the latest addition to the successful Barracuda brand in Beneteau's range of sport fishing vessels, will also be on show at Paris and Boot 2013 in Düsseldorf. The Barracuda range has been well received by recreational fishermen around the world from the fjords of Northern Europe, to the Mediterranean and the US coasts.
