Newport, Rhode Island (PRWEB) August 28, 2014
The 44th Annual Newport International Boat Show is right around the corner. As boating continues to attract the crowds, Beneteau America, already one of the largest exhibitors in the show, is growing its presence in the show by more than 50% with 16 powerboats and sailboats in the 2014 show.
“The Newport Boat Show is the first show of the season and is one of the largest in-water boat shows in the country. Unsurprisingly, we intend to start our season off strong,” said Maryline O’Shea, marketing director for Beneteau America. “To that end, we are bringing the Monte Carlo 5, awarded European Powerboat of the year, alongside an amazing line of new Beneteaus. Our entire Beneteau team is looking forward to the 2014 boat show.”
Beneteau America will be making a big splash into the powerboat world this year with the launch of the Monte Carlo 5 and the Barracuda 7 – whose sister the Barracuda 9 won the Newport for New Product contest two years ago. Both are sure to wow at this year’s show.
Beneteau is not just stepping up their powerboats presence, but they are also doubling up their sailboat footprint at the 2014 Newport International Boat Show. New to the show is the Oceanis 38 – which can be configured to meet the unique needs of her owners as a day sailer, weekender or cruiser. The Oceanis 38 was awarded European Yacht of the Year in the “Family Cruiser” category and received the NMMA Innovation Award in the “Sailboat” category this year.
