From 2023, Raymarine will be the new on-board electronics partner for the Beneteau Oceanis sailing yachts, strengthening the long-standing collaboration between the two industry leaders.
A long-standing relationship
From 2023, Beneteau Oceanis range of sailing yachts will be equipped as standard with award-winning Axiom chartplotters and Raymarine navigation equipment, thanks to the Fareham-based company’s ability to provide reliable, high-level support and service.
This agreement reinforces an already well-established partnership: in fact, Raymarine is one of the suppliers of Groupe Beneteau’s brands: Jeanneau, Lagoon and Excess, enabling an enhanced boating experience.
Raymarine products will be standard equipment on all Oceanis yachts from 2023 onwards, with the new Oceanis Yacht 60 unveiled at the recent Cannes Yachting Festival, held from 6-11 September 2022.
“As leading innovators in marine electronics for over 80 years, our products give confidence to sailors around the world, knowing their equipment has been robustly designed and they have the support of a global network behind them,” says Gregoire Outters, VP and General Manager of Raymarine. “We have an excellent relationship with Groupe Beneteau, already supplying several of their other brands across both power and sail. We are delighted to strengthen our dedication to the sailing community with this latest partnership”.
“I am extremely pleased to announce this partnership and particularly appreciate the great relationship we’ve had for years with Raymarine. We can always rely on their products and have a great trust of their support around the world.” confirms Yann Masselot, Beneteau Brand Director.
Consisting of eight models ranging from 30 to 60 feet, Groupe Beneteau’s Oceanis yachts stand out with a combination of special features such as on-board comfort, safety and efficiency, stable hulls, thoughtful design, and simplified manoeuvring.
All key aspects for owners seeking the highest quality for both inshore navigation and long cruises.
