Group Beneteau Dealer Awards

Sept 25, 2018

Following the close of the 2019 Groupe Beneteau Dealer Conference, the four Cadillac-built brands in attendance couldn’t have asked for a better representation of product and turnout of personnel.

Throughout its entirety, the conference held over 450 total attendees ranging from 27 different countries. 350 dealership members, 100 supply partners and company staff were onsite for the four brands on display: Four Winns, Glastron, Scarab Jet, and Wellcraft. To the individual, each brand serves a distinct role on the water where every element is at maximum elevation to appease the shifting needs and future desires of the community. Ensuing, together, they form a very dominant force within the boating network.
Four Winns showcased many new onboard features, all revolving around cruising comfort and high-class sport. The debut of the all-new Volvo Penta driven air-conditioning and cooling system, in collaboration with Webasto, raises the comfort level of Four Winns’ product to new heights. Dealers also fell in love with a new, sport gel scheme and interior introduced by the brand alongside refined RS graphics for the 2019 season.

Glastron continued to impress, all in attendance, through continuous motives for modern boats with plenty of space and versatility. The all-new GTDW 225 Surf & Fish made a splash on and off the water through a pocket-full of adaptable characteristics and boating charisma. New colors and patterned graphics not only differentiate, yet upscale for new opportunities for the brand.

Scarab Jet developed further wake opportunities within its 19-foot segment and launched the long-desired 300 Rotax— featured in single applications within 16–19-foot models, and in twins within the 25’ 255 series. Such power complimented by even more surf capability continues to drive why Scarab is the most memorable and exciting brand of Jet boats on the market.

As anticipated, Wellcraft took the show by force through the world-debut of its 352 Fisherman. Not one, but two 352s were onsite and battle-ready with Triple Mercury 400R Verados, one of which featured a remarkable second helm station. Complete with all the trimmings expected from Wellcraft these boats were in constant, like-minded conversation. With these new products, it’s evident that Wellcraft has become a premiere Center Console brand in the marketplace. And it’s all driven by individuals who appreciate what an angler needs while paying admiration to what their family desires.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
