Welcome back, Beneteau, to SW Washington
and Oregon area!
Prior to opening Passion Yachts, during the
period when I managed The Sailing Life we represented
Beneteau Sailboats for over eight years. The
Sailing Life was a Platinum Dealership, with several
customer service awards.
In 2009, when I took the helm of Passion
Yachts, times were tough, and stocking new boats was
risky to do at that time. Unfortunately as a result we
had to give up Beneteau.
In taking care of our Beneteau owners our
relationship with Beneteau continued over the years.
Now we are able to represent the brand once again, this
time in collaboration with our friends at Signature
Yachts. We are pleased about our relationship with
both Beneteau and Signature Yachts, and we are extremely
excited to be bringing Beneteau back to the Portland
Portland Boat Show January 9th-13th.
The Portland Boat Show is just around the
corner. We will have the new
Beneteau Swift Trawler 34 on display at the show.
Yes, a trawler! Even though our
focus is mainly sailboats, we will be representing all
of what Beneteau offers: the
Oceanis 31, 34, 37, 41, 45, 48, 54, 58, the
First Series 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, the
Sense 43, 46, 50, 55, the Swift Trawler 34, 44, 50,
52 and the Barracuda 9. Twenty-two Beneteau models
are available now!
We look forward to seeing you at the
Portland Boat Show!

Hunter 40 is designed to please. Her superior sailing
characteristics are honed from her 65 predecessors to

vessel that exceeded the expectations of the past forty
years. Come experience the new H40 with her dual helm
control, fold-down transom, chined hull and dual heads.

2011-NEW HUNTER e33
Hunter 33 is a stunning New sailing yacht. Hunter's
signature window line gives this yacht the sleek feel of
the latest Hunters, but the improvements don't end
there. The hull design has been improved, featuring a
wider beam further aft as well as a more profound bow
hollow. The result of this hull design is a longer
dynamic waterline, which means more speed.
