The 2019 Groupe Beneteau Dealer Conference held Sept. 7 to Sept. 9 in Sarasota, Fla. featured demonstrations of the company’s four Cadillac-built boat brands. The conference attracted 450 attendees from 27 different countries.
In attendance were 350 dealership members, 100 supply partners and company staff. Four brands on display included Four Winns, Glastron, Scarab Jet, and Wellcraft.
Four Winns showcased many new onboard features, all revolving around cruising comfort and high-class sport, as well as the debut of the all-new Volvo Penta driven air-conditioning and cooling system developed in collaboration with Webasto.
Dealers also learned more about a new, sport gel scheme and interior introduced by the brand alongside refined RS graphics for the 2019 season.
Glastron’s all-new GTDW 225 Surf & Fish model featured new colors and patterned graphics that represented an upscale offering for the opportunities for the brand.
Scarab Jet developed further wake opportunities within its 19-foot segment and launched the long-desired 300 Rotax, featured in single applications within 16-foot to 19-foot models, and in twins within the 25-foot 255 series.
Wellcraft showcased the world debut of its center console 352 Fisherman. Two 352s were onsite, each powered by triple Mercury 400R Verados, one of which featured a second helm station.
