This world-class firm complements a strong roster of UK suppliers who are providing huge range of marine services to support our water based events, everything from engines to RIBs and the charter of 19 commercial Weymouth and Portland fishing and dive boats.

Henri Brisse, Beneteau Vice President Sales and Marketing said: We are proud to have been selected by the LOCOG to supply motor yachts and to be part of such a large event as the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”


MC 42_BIGAn important step forward, both for the builder and sportscruiser design, the Monte Carlo 42 cannily brings together all of the best hardtop features while offering more quality, space and style per pound than almost any other cruiser out there. From the huge sunroof and super practical cockpit to the use of glass for the vast cabins below decks this is a very intelligent and luxurious cruiser. Yet again the AirStep ® hull design is a real winner on the water, offering incredibly smooth and agile handling for such a large, accommodating craft.
