The new Beneteau 46 designed by the naval architects Berret/Racoupeau with the stylizing collaboration of the design firm of Nauta Yachts, will make her premiere at the fall 2006 boat shows. The flowing, beautiful lines attract attention at first glance. Together with the Beneteau 49, this new model boldly leads the way for a new generation of Beneteau sailing yachts.

Beneteau USA, the American division of the world’s largest sailboat manufacturer, builds hundreds of 32-49 foot production sailboats, as well as the Swift Trawler 42, in Marion, SC and imports sailing yachts up to 57 feet in length from its parent company in France. The boats are sold through a network of over 40 dealers from the north in Alaska to the southern tip of Chile.
