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 area.
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!
The fast-paced lifestyle of today leaves few sanctuaries of solitude.

2011-NEW HUNTER e33
The 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.
Stress testing the NEW Hunter e33. At Hunter Marine, every new boat they build undergoes a rigorous stress test with Steve Pettengil (Director of Offshore Testing). If he can't break it, chances are you can't either! Watch Video
