From France to Sydney Boat Show

by Vicsail on 19 Jun 2013
Beneteau Oceanis 55 Beneteau - Vicsail .
The 2013 Sydney International Boat Show preparation is underway with Vicsail’s fleet of Beneteau yachts loaded and on their way to Australia with Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics on the cargo ship FIGARO, carrying four Beneteau yachts.



The Beneteau yachts that are on FIGARO include the ever-popular Beneteau First 35: A collaborative design with the Farr Yacht design, the First 35 is seaworthy for all seas. Elected the 2010 'Best yacht' of the Helsinki International Boat Show. The 2012 European Yacht of the Year Beneteau Oceanis 45: The Oceanis models are tireless cruisers designed to deliver comfort in all its forms, beginning with the comfort of a stable, high-performance hull.

Beneteau Oceanis 55: AUSTRALIAN PREMIER. This cruising yacht with clean modern lines, using contemporary design codes, favoring an extremely comfortable interior where there is an ambient feeling of great pleasure, quiet, peacefulness, coolness and space! At sea, this 55-foot sailing yacht instantly stands out because of its handsome appearance and taut lines.



Beneteau SENSE 46: AUSTRALIAN PREMIER. Beneteau’s success of the Sense range has created the designer Berret Racoupeau to design an intelligent comfortable yacht. The Sense (46’) places pleasure of ocean life with the family and friends. Having two spacious cabins and the modern layout that the concept has been successful for places the Sense (46’) as a gem in the Beneteau range.

In addition to the yachts on the FIGARO, below are the local yachts that you will see at the Boat Show. They will be highlighted with their big/little sister:

First 30 will be highlighted with the Oceanis 45
Sense 50 will be highlighted with the Sense 46
Oceanis 41 will be highlighted with the Oceanis 45

We will be following FIGARO movements as she makes her way to Port Kembla, Sydney. You can follow this amazing voyage from factory to Boat Show and every step the yachts go through before handed over to the public on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/BeneteauVicsail-Sydney/175375012507202?ref=hl
