Beneteau and AdvantageBeneteau America has announced the appointment of Advantage Yacht Sales of Newburyport, Massachusetts as exclusive Beneteau sailboat dealer in Northern New England, including Maine, New Hampshire, and areas in Massachusetts stretching from Boston to the North.

 “We feel honoured to have Advantage Yacht Sales on our side,” said Beneteau America President Laurent Fabre. “Not only has Advantage grown into one of the most reputable marine dealers in the region, but they are also a SailTime franchisee – like several of our existing Beneteau dealers – and offer an in-house sailing school program to supplement the boat ownership experience. We all recognize that offering more opportunities for new people to discover sailing as a hobby and a lifestyle is critical to the prosperity of our industry”, Fabre commented. “Beneteau America’s partnership with Advantage Yacht Sales is truly an ideal fit”.

 Co-founded in 2007 by Jack Wasson and Doug Giuliana, Advantage Yacht Sales has been recognized by Boating Industry as one of the Top 100 Dealers in North America every year since 2011. Advantage is also a Marine Industry "Five Star" Certified Dealer, having proven their commitment to excellence in customer service. They follow specific processes to consistently provide a high level of service to every customer, constantly improve their operations, and train their staff, while adhering to the MRAA/NMMA "Customer Bill of Rights". Advantage counts two sales locations in Newburyport and downtown Boston, and a boat yard located in Salisbury, MA.

 Jack Wasson commented, “We have found in Beneteau’s product lines the perfect complement to our current portfolio of new boats. The Oceanis, Sense and First brands differentiate themselves in many unique ways from more traditional sailboats, thus equating to a great cruiser choice for any sailor. We are excited about the opportunity to work with Beneteau America and show the Boston marketplace why Beneteau is the preferred sailboat brand in the world today.”

 Advantage Yacht Sales will represent Beneteau Sailboats alongside local Beneteau dealers Cape Yachts, Prestige Yacht Sales, Great Hudson Sailing Center, and Willis Marine at the Newport International Boat Show September 17-20 where Beneteau is exhibiting 8 sailboats and 7 powerboats, ranging from 31 to 60 feet.

VOLVO PENTA D13 1000 400

Recently, John Armstrong of Canadian Yachting magazine traveled to Maine to sea trial the exciting new MJM 35z.

MJM Yachts was founded in 2002 by Bob Johnstone, who also co-founded J Boats, Inc., the world's leading brand of performance sailboats (14,000 worldwide). Asked why the move to power, Bob, who is 83, replied, "Seems my wife and I had gotten older and our boats had to reverse roles. I'll always enjoy a daysail on the latest 'J.' But our quality cruising time is now on a motorboat." 

This was the concept behind the development of their line of power yachts and we talked with Bob Johnstone on video about his...READ MORE

SAFER AIR CONDITIONING WITH THE SMARTPLUG

Smart Plug 400During the heat of summer, many boat owners turn on their air conditioning units. Whether portable or installed, they have serious power requirements that can strain and overload outdated, twist-type shore power systems. A safer approach is to use the revolutionary SmartPlug. 

Available in 30 or 50 amp models, the SmartPlug consists of an inlet and cordset with connector. What sets it apart from traditional shore power equipment is the unique pin and clip design that provides more metal-to-metal contact. This dramatically reduces the chance of fire due to resistance and overheating from the loads an air conditioner can place on the system. Plus, its asymmetrical plug with spring-loaded locking clips slides straight in, making it easy to do when tired or it's dark. READ MORE
