1987 Beneteau

Benjamin Beneteau, shipwright, started the Beneteau boatyard at Croix-de-Vie, France to develop sailing trawlers. In 1964 Annette Beneteau Roux and her sibling, Andre, granddaughter and grand son to Benjamin, diversified the business with the introduction of fiberglass cruising yachts. With the introduction of the Fletan and the Guppy, Beneteau took part in the 1965 Paris Boat Show for the 1st time, establishing its reputation for constructing seaworthy satisfaction craft. In 1976 the Beneteau 1st 30 was presented. Designed by Andre' Mauric, the 1st 30 was the start of Beneteau's extremely effective 1st series. The 1st 30 was selected Boat of the Year at the Paris Boat Show and won the very 1st leg of the Figaro Single-Handed Race. In response to its expanding North American market, Beneteau opened a manufacturing center in Marion, South Carolina. Within 4 yrs, Beneteau ended up being 1 of the leading 3 sailboat manufacturers in America.
