Values & commitments

 
The BENETEAU Group has built its strength on strong values and sound fundamentals. Throughout the generations, the company's men and women have cultivated their passion for our products, their ability to innovate at all times and their constant commitment to our customers and their environment.

Opening up the pleasure of sailing high-quality boats to as many people as possible, developing with respect for social ethics, limiting our environmental impact :
These values have helped forge the Group's success, uniting the company each day and representing decisive strengths for the present and the future 
 
Constantly optimizing value for money

Today, for an equivalent model and budget, the Group is designing and producing larger, better equipped and higher-performance boats. This performance is being made possible by leading-edge techniques and a modern industrial tool. The constant optimization of its manufacturing processes is helping bring production costs down. This key strength is opening up the pleasure of sailing high-quality boats to as many people as possible.

Developing while respecting the environment

Sustainable development represents a key issue for the Group, as shown by the ISO 14001 certification of BENETEAU, JEANNEAU and O'HARA. In concrete terms, this is reflected in the very significant achievements made with reclaiming production waste, optimizing energy management and reducing volatile organic compounds (VOC).

Limiting our products' environmental impact

Also certified for the manufacturing of its products, O'Hara is committed to an ecodesign approach, reflected in the choice of environmentallyfriendly materials, energy-efficient equipment and solutions facilitating deconstruction. In the pleasure cruising sector, all the equipment recommended by the "Bateau Bleu" label (for managing black water disposal, avoiding pollution when refueling, reducing energy consumption on board, etc.) are now fitted as standard on all boats over 9 m. On leisure homes, the products are increasingly taking environmental constraints into consideration: better landscape integration, improved insulation, equipment to reduce energy consumption and safeguard resources.

Innovation serving sustainable development

Sustainable development is not just a constraint. It also represents a major driver for innovation within the Group. For instance, with the Lagoon 420, the Group has been the first to offer a boat fitted with electrical engines as standard. This technical solution - known as "hybrid propulsion", with the propellers recharging the batteries when sailing - consumes four times less energy than conventional diesel systems and makes it possible to reduce noise pollution.

Accompanying our customers worldwide

Committed to respecting and listening to its customers, the BENETEAU Group is backed by an international network, with 450 distributors on hand to advise and support customers in over 50 countries.

Offering services that make the difference

A boat builder's job does not end upon delivery, with the BENETEAU Group's brands accompanying their customers from their acquisition to their product resale. In the pleasure cruising sector, SGB Finance, the dynamic and strong captive finance company, enables customers to make their dreams come true. A Group subsidiary and Europe's leading network for pre-owned boat professionals, EYB makes it easier to sell boats on again thanks to a unique online database (www.eyb-boats.com.). In terms of outdoor accommodation, IRM and O'Hara also offer quality services tailored to the financing, transport, after-sales service and refurbishment needs of professionals and individuals...
