Victorian Beneteau Dealers Sundance Marine and JW Marine say they will present a big range of the French-manufactured models at the upcoming Melbourne Summer Boat Show. Sundance said it is excited to be displaying a large complement of models from the Beneteau Oceanis yacht range including the OC34, 41, 45 and 48. And in what Beneteau says is a coup for Sundance and the organisers of the Melbourne Boat Show, Sundance will display the new Sense 55, the first time the latest in the Sense range has been on display at a boat show in Australia.

“Our Sense 55 has received a number of leading Boat Of The Year Awards in Europe and America, so it’s fantastic that we can provide an opportunity for the yachting public of Victoria to inspect this stunning yacht”, said Sundance Marine managing director, David Beck. The new Sense 55 has reached a new level of maturity and has become even more relevant. The opening up of the interior and exterior spaces, new access to the sea, overall organisation of the boat into subtly linked but independent living areas, hull reducing the heel angle providing seakeeping second to none, all make good Sense, as does the increase in size,” he said.

Victorian Beneteau Power Boat Dealer JW Marine recently opened a new office located within the show precinct at Docklands. In this, their first show as Melbourne Dealers, JW Marine will display a selection of the latest power boats from Beneteau. JW Marine will display the new Antares 8 and Antares 880, as well as a Barracuda 7, this last one exhibited for the first time at a boat show in Australia.

“The Beneteau Antares and Barracuda range of sportfishing and family cruisers are perfectly suited to Victorian boating conditions. Both ranges feature spacious cockpits, with the very well presented enclosed cabins offering comfortable cruising if the weather turns for the worse. Plus both offer exceptional performance achieving 30 plus knots if you need to get home in a hurry”, commented Adam Waters from JW Marine.

Sundance Marine and JW Marine will be on hand at the Melbourne Summer Boat Show from today until Sunday, February 3. For more information on the Beneteau yacht range visit or for the Beneteau Power Boat range visit
