Beneteau sees solid sales in Annapolis

Of the number of vessels of more than 30 feet that were sold at the 40th annual United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Md., Beneteau says it sold the most.

Beneteau displayed nine models ranging from 31 to 49 feet at the show, which ran Oct. 8-12. This included the new First 40 by Farr Yacht Design that was nominated at the show for Sailing World and Cruising World's Boat of the Year competitions as well as Sail magazine's Best Boats for 2010.

"Over a dozen retail contracts have been written and an additional 12 or more deals are in negotiations at various dealerships, including a couple of orders on the new Oceanis 58, which just launched last month at the Cannes Boat Show," said Wayne Burdick, president of Beneteau USA, in a statement. "If these come to fruition, it certainly will add up to a show substantially better than last year, confirming the upward trend has begun."
