A selection of Beneteau yachts and motorboats goes on display this month at Club Marina Cove, in Hong Kong’s eastern Sai Kung district. 

The Grand Trawler 62 makes its Asia premiere at the Beneteau Power Days event, organised by regional dealer Simpson Marine. Other models on display include the Flyer 8, Flyer 9, Antares 9, Gran Turismo 41 and the Monte Carlo 52, as well as a selection of Highfield Tenders.

The flagship Beneteau Grand Trawler 62, unveiled to the public at the 2021 Cannes Yachting Festival, is the biggest yacht produced by Beneteau brand and 62 builds on Beneteau’s range of trawler boats, known for fuel efficiency and operating at a slower speed.

The French boat-building giant partnered with the rising star in fuel-efficient naval architecture, Micad, to guarantee the best possible range. Micad, founded by Amedeo Migali, has become the new go-to Italian engineering firm for several shipbuilders, most especially Beneteau, which will be expanding its partnership with Micad.

Masselot says that the new 62 can motor at nine knots, consuming 30 litres of fuel per hour, yielding a range of well over 1,000 nautical miles. The first hull was tested in January 2020, and it sold quickly.

“Long cruises, fishing, quick trips, sport and great sensations,” says Simpson Marine of the range of boats on display at the event. “All types of boating, all types of pleasure and all horizons in six ranges and forty models. There is a dream to suit everyone.”
