Re: Visit to Beneteau Factory

I think the "Secret Sauce" is taking care of their owners. People who take the tour will tell a LOT of folks about it, and that positive experience is the world's best advertising.

Oh and congrats on the new boat! Any idea when she'll be delivered?

Re: Visit to Beneteau Factory

Any idea how long it takes to the finish the boat once the hull pops out of the mold?

Congrats on the boat, when are you taking us sailing?

Re: Visit to Beneteau Factory

Congrats! They do build a good boat. I got mine (393) in Charleston and have driven by the Marion site but have not been inside. I did visit my first two boats (both CS's) every weekend when they were being built in Brampton a few miles from Toronto. Quite a lot of fun watching the boat go slowly down the line and then finally out the door.

Re: Visit to Beneteau Factory

Enjoy the moment. Just got a new boat. So as the twisted dick said "I feel your pain". Described the experience to a friend as being like being pregnant. Waiting gets harder near the end but after the pain you get a brand new perfect baby.
