BENETEAU et SUZUKI : 50 ans de Salon Nautique !

, ,

beneteau suzukiCette année, au Nautic de Paris 2014, BENETEAU et SUZUKI célébreront leurs 50 ans de Salon Nautique ensemble. Les deux marques y sont en effet présentes depuis 1964. Cette année-là, la troisième édition du Salon de la Plaisance ouvrait ses portes en plein chantier du quartier d’affaires de la Défense. BENETEAU faisait alors son entrée sur la scène nautique française avec la présentation de ses premiers bateaux en polyester. Suzuki écrivait les premières pages de son histoire motonautique.

Mais en cinquante ans, de l’eau a coulé sous les ponts … de Paris. Le Salon de la Plaisance est en effet devenu le Nautic de la Porte de Versailles. Bénéteau et Suzuki, les deux leaders mondiaux incontestés de leur secteur, multiplient les collaborations et partenariats. Les deux marques célébreront en décembre prochain leurs cinquante ans de présence au Salon Nautique de Paris.

A cette occasion, 3 Flyers Bénéteau remonteront symboliquement les 50 kilomètres de bord de Seine conduisant de l’Ile des Impressionnistes à Port Javel dans le 15e arrondissement de Paris. Ils seront escortés par 4 mythiques motos VanVan Suzuki customisées aux couleurs anniversaires des deux marques.

A l’issue de ces « 50èmes Rugissants », Flyer et VanVan rejoindront les stands Bénéteau du Nautic. Ces versions uniques de la légendaire moto Suzuki, re-dessinées par Style & Design et préparées par MFC Paris, seront offertes après tirage au sort aux acquéreurs d’un bateau signé pendant la durée du Salon.  

Cette nouvelle génération de Flyer de Bénéteau, dessinée par Style & Design, bénéficie pour sa motorisation des dernières technologies Suzuki Marine. Cette étroite collaboration s’accompagne au niveau européen d’accords pour le développement et le renouvellement de l’ensemble des gammes hors-bords.



BENETEAU and SUZUKI: 50 Years of Boat Show!

, ,

beneteau suzukiFor nearly fifty years, Beneteau and Suzuki have represented the pinnacle of sailing and motorsports respectively.  Since their debut in 1964 at the third annual Paris Boat Show, these two powerhouses have become world leaders in the boating community. Thanks to a number of past and ongoing partnerships, they have indeed come a long way.  To celebrate this rich history and to pay homage to the very event that had initially caused their rise to stardom, both will be marking their fiftieth anniversaries at the upcoming Paris Boat Show.

Commemorating Their Synergy with Style

At this next event, spectators can expect nothing less than awe-inspiring displays of perfection from both Beneteau and Suzuki.  Four bespoke and stylised VanVan motorbikes prepared by MFC Paris will be on display; each bearing the colours of these magnificent brands.  However, we can naturally anticipate a bit of streamlined action alongside such attractions.

A trio of Beneteau Flyers will sail from the Ile des Impressionnistes to Port Javel (in Paris).  This stretch of fifty kilomatres along the Seine River will be accompanied by the Suzuki motorbikes flanking the Flyers.  Known as the « Furious 50s », fans of racing and sailing will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle while reminiscing about how much progress both leaders have made.  Thereafter, the bikes and the boats will head over to the stands.  Perhaps most importantly, the motorbikes will be raffled off to a lucky winner who signed a boat purchase contract during the event itself.  So, there are many more rewards than simply partaking in the spectacles of sailing and racing.

While these bikes were crafted by none other than Style & Design, it is worth noting that the Beneteau Flyers also employ the latest technological innovations by Suzuki Marine for their propulsion.

Flyer 6In many ways, these two companies have reinvented the world of sailing.  Thanks to such a rich history, we should only expect this close collaboration to continue.  Furthermore, European accords between Suzuki and Beneteau will additionally encourage the renewal and development of the entire range of outboard motors.  Indeed, this anniversary will certainly be one to remember.
