On the Look out for Innovation and Competitiveness


Innovation and creativity have guided Bénéteau's expansion for 120 years and any new project aims to make our boats more competitive. Working on industrialization processes, the R&D department is comprised of twenty experts. They develop, adapt, correct and control, with the sole bjective of delivering high quality, durable boats that are available to a wide public.

The Mastery of Composites and their Implementation is a strategic challenge. A boat is a sophisticated structure subjected to continuous assaults. To resist aging and weather conditions, the materials used must have many intrinsic qualities which they should keep after their often complex assembly.

Our R&D teams devote a large amount of their time to optimizing these composites and making them compatible. By continuously keeping up with technological innovations and being highly involved in projects for new boats the R&D office provides technical solutions responding to more and more extensive design, quality and cost control requirements. In the area of industrial processes, the main aim of the laboratory is to search for ingenious solutions in order to reduce production time. They also now ensure that no shortage in the supply of raw materials should disrupt production. Optimization of processes and securing supplies strongly contributes to Bénéteau's competitiveness.

Last of all, whether they are working on the industrialization or the usage of new materials, the R&D department is particularly committed to the implementation of the Yard's environmental approach.
