The current health situation and the difficulties connected with travel in Europe make the beginning of the 2021 nautical season a little unusual. Be that as it may, people will want to visit boats and the desire to cast off has never been quite so strong.
In this context, Benetau and its network of dealers have taken steps to meet sailors throughout Europe. The Beneteau Roadshow will cross 7 countries from the North to the South from 1st April to 20 June 2021 and visits and private sea trials will be organized.
European boaters have gone without boat shows for a year now and have had limited access to or use of their boats. So, they probably have had very little time to prepare the 2021 season the way that they would like to, or to plan the practicalities of a future buy.
Without waiting for the next government decisions, which will decide whether we can travel to various countries, Beneteau has decided to launch a Rodashow. This will be a big European tour which involves setting up a temporary installation in the vicinity of our boaters’ key boating areas, with considerable help from our dealer network.
Beneteau and its distributors will meet their customers face to face and show them the flagship models of the brand’s range of sailing yachts and motorboats, visible ashore and afloat. This unprecedented arrangement will help reconnect with boaters who need help with their boating projects.
All well-known boating areas
From early April, two tours will be launched simultaneously in the north and south of Europe, with the aim of visiting key European boating areas. In northern Europe, the roadshow will cross Scandinavia, the Baltic Sea, the North Sea and the English Channel, while in southern Europe it will stop off on the Mediterranean Sea and on the Atlantic Ocean.
Visits and private trials by appointment only
Access to the boats shown for private visits – with possible trials depending on the ports – will be by appointment only and will comply with local protective measures. Beneteau’s staff and dealers will welcome their customers in pleasant friendly surroundings, making these meetings very satisfying all round.
