Celebrating 140 years!

140 years, it’s time to celebrate all the stakeholders who make up the Group’s success.

Since 1884, first Benjamin Beneteau, then, the Groupe Beneteau have never stopped innovating, transforming and conquering new markets for a universal mission: making dreams on water accessible to as many people as possible ; “Bringing dreams to water”.

The sea, a place where we dare to dream, where we dare to hoist our sails, guided by a passion for discovery and a thirst for adventure.

A dream where the sea is no longer an obstacle, but a path to humility and respect for others and nature.

Celebrating 140 years means looking to the future without forgetting our roots.

Celebrating 140 years means celebrating the talent of the Group’s 8,130 employees, spread across 23 production facilities around the world, and highlighting their know-how and the complementary of their teams.

It is the occasion to recall the strength of each brand in the Group’s success and mission.

It’s also an ideal opportunity to thank all our business players, who have contributed to our success: supplier partners, dealers and, of course, our customers.

Celebrating our 140th anniversary is a reminder of the Group’s strengths and, above all, its ability to adapt to move forward and ensure its sustainability. Groupe Beneteau has been constructed on a solid foundation (teams, stakeholders, projects, values) that is more than ever focused on what is coming next, and it is on this foundation that we can build and sail into our destiny.

 

 

2024 will be an opportunity to rediscover our history, our strengths, and our similitudes, and to share what has inspired us for four generations: our values of passion, transmission, conquest and audacity.

We’re continuing our great adventure by looking to the future, positioning ourselves as a key player in tomorrow’s boating, focused on innovation and sustainability.

OUR ADVENTURE, A STORY WRITTEN WITH THE PASSION OF OUR TEAMS

We would like to thank the 8,130 men and women who make the 21 brands of the Groupe Beneteau grow every day through its 3 divisions: Beneteau, Jeanneau, Prestige, Lagoon, Excess, Delphia, Four Winns, Wellcraft, Scarab, Glastron, Band of Boats, SGB, Your Boat Club, Dream Yacht Charter, Navigare, Seanapps, Wiziboat, Yacht Solutions, O’HARA, IRM and Coco Sweet.

We also wish to thank each and every one of our brands, as they are the driving force behind the Group’s success, both locally and internationally through our 23 production sites.

We’re proud of the road we’ve travelled since 1884; challenges and encounters have punctuated our history and shaped who we are today.

We all embody the Group’s values: PASSION – TRANSMISSION – CONQUEST – AUDACITY

 

 

“I hope that all those who will be present to celebrate these 140 years will keep these ancestral values alive, and remain aware that whatever the challenge they will be given, together they will create a work that our customer will trust to face the sea, an element that imposes humility and respect.”

Annette Roux, Beneteau Foundation President
