Beneteau America appointed Segue Yachts to distribute its powerboat lines in Argentina.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with Segue Yachts as our powerboats dealer for Argentina. Their proven sales history and experience for the last 40 years in the marketplace has set a benchmark standard not only in Argentina, but for all of South America,” South America Beneteau powerboat sales manager Antonio Castañeda said in a statement.

“We are thrilled for this partnership and look forward to a long and successful future together,” Beneteau America president Laurent Fabre said.

Established in 1978 in San Fernando, Argentina, the Segue Yachts shipyard will focus its manufacturing efforts on 60-foot plus yachts and will sell 30- to 60-foot Beneteau powerboats.

“In order to continue to deliver the best boating experience to our clients, we thoroughly researched which range of boats could extend our line of custom yachts; we came to the conclusion that Beneteau — a family-owned yard, with common values and nautical traditions — would be the natural choice,” said Martin Corgo, Segue Yachts designer.

“We will be bringing the Beneteau Gran Turismo models in early 2017, followed by the Swift Trawler and Monte Carlo lines.”
