PROJECT E – A NEW RANGE, TWO YACHTS, AN EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY…

Beneteau Project E

Jan 28, 2020

Imagine not just one, but two exceptional seaworthy boats, featuring exquisite comfort and luxury, and an incredible amount of space, ideal for the perfect ocean cruise. This is exactly what BENETEAU promises with the launch of code name “PROJECT E”, announcing the production of two boats in 2021.
 
BENETEAU EXPERTISE DELIVERING PASSAGEMAKER YACHTS

These two yachts, one of which is over 20 meters (over 65’) long, are the result of BENETEAU’s collaboration with Massimo Gino (Nauta Design) and Amedeo Migali (MICAD) and capitalize on the highly successful Swift Trawler range of practical, spacious boats, with a considerable cruising range, and put Groupe Bénéteau’s experience in producing luxury boats to good use.

These new boats have a distinctive displacement hull, developed by MICAD with the aim of improving their cruising range and efficiency, making it easier for owners to cast off on long-distance cruises. A satin wax finished wood, leather and elegant textiles make for a stylish interior and exterior, carefully designed by the experts at Nauta Design.

Strikingly spacious inside, with volumes similar to much bigger yachts, and ingeniously designed, these large passage-makers also have enough space to comfortably house a crew.

TWO YACHTS, ONE OF WHICH IS OVER 20 METRES (65’) LONG

The first model is 18.95 meters long (62’) and has a hull beam of over 5 meters (16’5”). Designed for 6 to 8 people on board (+ crew), the boat has an impressive flybridge – one of the biggest on the market. The interior spaces are spacious and well-appointed. The galley can be completely enclosed. The VIP guest cabin in the bow, has a generous amount of headroom, so much that you feel like you are in a hotel suite.

Comfortable and seaworthy, with a cruising range of 900 nautical miles and a central raised helm station, she is ideal for slow cruises or leisure activities, favoring introspection as much as the desire to get away from it all.

The second model is 20.28 meters long (66’6’’) designed for 8 people and 4 crew. With space inside similar to an 85-foot boat, a little patience will be needed to see every detail of  the second model. Careful attention has been paid to the flow of movement on board, to make crew circulation easier. A raised pilothouse is located midships, cleverly positioned between the main deck and the flybridge and accessed by a dedicated stairway.

Built for Exceptional cruises, long-distance blue water Expeditions, and unforgettable Experiences in Extra-voluminous spaces, these code-name “PROJECT E” yachts will launch officially in 2021. Contact your local dealer to learn more about the project.

Lead by Executive Director Marie-France MacKinnon and executed by her team and their public affairs firm, BlueSky Strategy Group, the results were impressive. The NMMA Canada Board of Directors were organized into teams with business interests and special skills matched up to politicians and senior bureaucrats to most effectively present the marine industry’s agenda of issues.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works. Plus, when the vessel is moving slowly in fog or while trolling, it can do something a GPS can’t: show the actual heading in real time. As a back-up to modern electronics, it’s a vital navigational tool that belongs on every commercial and recreational boat.
