Rec Boat Holdings debuts Four Winns models at Cannes

Rec Boat Holdings is debuting two of its boats in Europe this week at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

Rec Boat Holdings is debuting two of its boats in Europe this week at the Cannes Yachting Festival — the new Four Winns TS222 and the Four Winns Vista 255.

The company announced several new 2016 products on Wednesday at the show, hosted by the management team from Rec Boat Holdings and one of the newest French dealers for the brand, Massif Marine Groupe. The all-new Vista 255, a trailerable pocket cruiser, was the flagship of the show for Four Winns, followed by the new family tow sports model, the TS222.

“The TS222 promises to be a solid ‘no compromise’ competitor in the steadily growing towboat segment,” Rec Boat Holdings president Roch Lambert said in a statement. “We can now offer consumers a boat that will deliver all the fun of a traditional towboat while providing a roomier, better-handling boat normally experienced with sterndrive power.”

The Vista 255 fills a void, Lambert said.

“There is a void in the market for this style product, especially in overseas markets,” he said in a separate statement. “The design was largely influenced by our dealers in order to hit the market with the right boat. The Vista 255 fills the gap perfectly.”

The company was bought by Beneteau Group last summer. Lambert told Trade Only last winter that Beneteau was not only looking to expand its presence in the United States with the acquisition, but also to help Rec Boat Holdings brands penetrate the European market.
