At BENETEAU’s manufacturing facility, builders thoroughly test all materials that go into our boats both individually and collectively to ensure the highest quality result. One example of this is the resin, which helps to maintain strength and structure on boats over time.

Special formulation vinyl ester resin is used on the decks and hulls throughout construction, and continually testing ensures that it’s suitable for the processes and materials the process utilizes it for and with. BENETEAU has tested resin for its resistance to water intrusion through osmosis.

The materials incorporated are only part of the equation. Another significant part is the process is how materials are applied and used. At BENETEAU, resin is used in the three different construction methods for building boat hulls and decks: hand lay-up, resin infusion, and injection modeling.

The Woodworking Facility

Regardless of where they’re built, all BENETEAU boats receive their wood parts from a single dedicated facility in France. This facility combines technology and handcraftsmanship to create a long-lasting interior that is both attractive and efficient to produce.

This woodworking facility is the secret to why BENETEAU can sell both powerboats and sailboats for significantly less than other builders. While interior woodwork on boats often takes a lot of time to build, BENETEAU has created the ability to replicate a variety of wood types at a lower cost. This unique and specialized wood product is resistant to warping, appears perfectly uniform, and imitates other wood types at a much lower cost.

We select our dealers based on their skill and knowledge in the marine industry. Whether you’re seeking a sailing yacht or powerboat, they’ll work with you to find and make the perfect purchase.

After you’ve made your choice, your dealer will continue to work with you year in and year out to maintain your boat and ensure your satisfaction.

By Craig Ritchie

While Canadians may have been slower to warm to pontoon boats than our southern neighbours, that’s definitely changed as we see more of them gracing our waters every year. The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

By Elizabeth Wilson, “Georgian Bay Beauties” (www.GeorgianBayBeauties.org)

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
