All of our new Beneteau Yachts are now imported directly from Europe to Grand Yachts Inc. in Vancouver. The new boats are wrapped for shipping by freighter to Tacoma, W.A. where they are off loaded on land to continue their journey by truck or splashed if they are to motor up to B.C on their own bottom.
Grand Yachts Inc. is proud to announce that we took delivery of four new Beneteau sailboats this winter !
Oceanis 46.1 x 2
Oceanis 51.1 and a
First Yacht 53 the first one to be sold in Western Canada.
The deliveries did not come without winter transport challenges: Snow en-route in Washington State and severe flooding at the Abbotsford border crossing meant for a number of stressful delays, but eventually all boats were safely delivered to First Yacht Services — our dedicated Authorized Beneteau Service Centre — and the exhaustive commissioning process starts.
Once unwrapped, inspected, assembled, and local options added, every system is tested and retested, and the yachts are taken out for sea trials and equipment calibration before the final detailing and hand-over to happy new owners!
We are pleased to report that deliveries to our wonderful BC customers continue, and next to arrive later this summer are an Oceanis 30.1, Oceanis 34.1, Oceanis 38.1 and an Oceanis 40.1.
