Beneteau’s Sense 50 Steals Annapolis Boat Show

By Peter Hebert (about the author)

The 51st United States Sailboat Show held between October 7 and 11, 2010 in Annapolis, Maryland pulled about 50,000 visitors from around the world. They came to see the latest in the competitive market for sailboats and yachts. As a point of reference, the yacht show at National Harbor between May 29 and 31, 2009 outside of Washington, D.C. on the Potomac River may have pulled just a few thousand people.

One thing is certain. Beneteau’s Sense 50 should be the boat of the year for several reasons.

First, the company’s designers Marion, South Carolina-based Beneteau, Milano, Italy-based Nauta Design, and La Rochelle, France-based Berret Racoupeau Yacht Design have taken yacht design to a new level.

As a result, there is no other yacht on the market like the Sense 50.  READ THE REST OF THE STORY
