Beneteau receives top honors at sailing industry event


Sail America presented 2013 United States Sailboat Show 'Best in Show' awards to a standing room only crowd at the Sail America Members Meeting on Friday, October 11. Over 150 industry professionals were in attendance when Sail America presented the awards to six separate exhibiting companies; Beneteau won 'Best in Show' overall.

1. Best Booth Display-200 square feet and under: Mantus Anchors
2. Best Booth Display-Over 200 square feet: Dream Yacht Charters
3. Best Boat Display-Fewer than five boats: Lagoon
4. Best Boat Display-Five or more boats: Jeanneau
5. Best in Show: Beneteau

Sail America judged the contest with the help of four independent judges who commended the companies for having well dressed, friendly, and professional personnel as well as inviting booths and informative displays.

Mantus Anchors won with an excellent interactive hands-on display, signage, and engaging and friendly personnel while Dream Yacht Charters was noted for quality graphics with a matching theme, well dressed personnel, and consistent messaging. Lagoon highlighted its inviting booth space with great signage, large graphic photo banners, and flags while Jeanneau featured the best signage in the show as well as big and spacious office space with sitting areas.

Overall Best in Show was reserved for Beneteau for a truly outstanding display, in-water graphics, bold entry, inviting lounge area, and quality furnishings. Consistent messaging and graphics, a coffee bar, and a friendly, well-dressed staff put this display above all others.
