Beneteau Monohull SailAs numerous boat shows have been cancelled in different regions of the world, Groupe Beneteau and its brands are proud to announce the new models of the 2021 season that will be presented through a series of private events. Unveiled to the press on August 31st and September 1st, 2020, the 18 new models of this season carry the promise of unique nautical experiences. 

“We want to make this crisis an opportunity to rethink our customer relationship and experience, traditionally displayed at boat shows. Since May, we have developed digital tools so you can discover our boats online, take an online detailed presentation on board, or have a live chat with our boat specialists. Our brands are also organizing a series of private events for this fall to welcome customers and prospects in the best and safest possible way,” explained Gianguido Girotti, Deputy General Manager, in charge of brand and product strategy.

This year, PRESTIGE, JEANNEAU and BENETEAU present 14 new models, all thought out and designed to provide maximum comfort on board, space, pleasure on the water and personalization. 

FOUR WINNS and DELPHIA as high potential brands will make announcements later in the season. FOUR WINNS will unveil its new genereation of bowriders for the Horizon range. Completely redesigned to meet the specificities of inland navigation, DELPHIA’s boat offer will be based on innovative electrically propelled boats and new features to improve the customer experience.

From cruising to performance and charter, a targeted approach in monohull and multihull sailing

Building on the Groupe Beneteau's DNA historically anchored in sailing, BENETEAU and JEANNEAU are pursuing their dual approach by targeting both the core cruising market with the Oceanis and Sun Odyssey ranges, and the niche markets of performance, luxury and charter. 

The winning duo LAGOON and EXCESS are offering this year two new products in the multihull segment: the luxurious LAGOON SIXTY 5 sailing cat and the most accessible catamaran on the market with EXCESS 11.

Glomex TV

Televisions on a boat are increasingly commonplace. With the simple-to-install Glomex Avior VT300 Omnidirectional TV/FM antenna from GA Communications, it's never been easier to bring analog and digital broadcasts onboard—at a price that's hard to ignore.

The most noticeable feature of the Avior VT300 antenna is its compact white, anti-yellowing radome. At only 4" dia. x 8" H and 8.8 oz., it's specifically made for smaller boats that can't accommodate large TV antenna domes and only need short range reception, depending on height and conditions. The amplifier allows the antenna to have an increase in gain with a 24.5 dB average to receive vertical and horizontal polarized TV signals simultaneously from 360°.
