Beneteau boats in Minorca

1884-2024: Beneteau Group, 140 years of nautical innovation

«It all began in 1884 in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, in Vendée (France), a small fishing village on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Benjamin Bénéteau built fishing boats there, with the aim of being faster and faster to reach port first,” recalls Gianguido Girotti, General Director of the Boats Division, Groupe Beneteau. “His visionary influence was later passed on to her granddaughter, Annette Roux, who went on to define the modern concept of recreational boating. As a pioneer, she combined know-how with the mass production of boats to make recreational boating accessible and distribute it throughout the world.

Over the decades, the Group has experienced notable growth thanks to the successive contributions of prestigious brands: Jeanneau, Prestige, Lagoon, Excess, Delphia, Four Winns and Wellcraft. All of them have contributed to enriching the group’s offering, which now has 8,000 employees around the world.

This evolution has gone hand in hand with the launch of an environmental sustainability program over the last ten years. For Gianguido Girotti, we have a kind of obsession with guaranteeing respect and protection of our navigation area, the water. The Group’s sustainable approach is based on an analysis of the life cycle of its different types of vessels and navigation activities, in order to offer solutions with an efficient impact. Our stated ambition is to reduce CO2 emissions by 30% by 2030.”
