With the London Olympic Games in 2012, the Vendée Globe – single-handed round the world sailing – 4 times running, and even the Solitaire Le Figaro, through a fifteen-year plus financial and logistical partnership, the BENETEAU brand has distinguished itself in the organization of major sailing events.
The 34th America’s Cup, which took place from 7 to 25 September 2013 in San Francisco Bay, saw the defender, Oracle Team USA, win over the challenger, Emirates Team New Zealand. At the end of this thrilling race, the title holder won the America’s Cup by 9-8 after having been led by 1-8. As official supplier of the Oracle Team USA, BENETEAU provided a full fleet of Swift Trawlers throughout the event, via its North American subsidiary.
