Beneteau announces Fort Lauderdale show contest


Beneteau will celebrate the launch of its Flyer Gran Turismo Express Cruiser range to the North American market at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show by awarding a five-day, four-night trip to France for two, including airfare and accommodations.

“We wanted to do something bold and exciting to commemorate the arrival of our new line of express cruisers in North America. The launch of the Flyer Gran Turismo range here is a proud step for Beneteau,” Maryline O’Shea, marketing director for Beneteau’s powerboats division, said in a statement.

“Since we are a France-based company, it seems appropriate that as we introduce the range to North America we share its birthplace with a lucky few in celebration of the occasion,” she added.

The drawing will be held on the last day of the show, which runs Oct. 27-31.

Those interested in the debut of the cruisers can click here to register for a Beneteau VIP pass, which provides access to the Beneteau VIP area and registers the guest for a chance to win the trip to France.
