From model to mould
The great progress made in 3D modelling now makes it possible to produce a boat model that can be used directly in the making of the mould. Since 2003, the prototype workshop is equipped with a 5 axis digitally controlled robot and can handle all the parts used to make the mould at the same time. It is extremely precise and contributes to gaining precious time.
Marine cabinet work
For more than 120 years, the succeeding BENETEAU cabinet work generations rivalled each other in know-how. Their single passion has always been to perpetuate the tradition, to offer stylishly elegant boats; always with a quality of finish beyond reproach.
Associating industrial performance with traditional talent, the Yard's cabinet work now mobilizes highly varied skills and processes, working towards continuously improving boat fittings. There are 300 cabinet workers in the workshop, based in Vendée, and this supplies all production sites, including the United States. The work of this team of men and women is very demanding as much in the choice of woods as in their transformation and treatment. They all use their talents to adapt the production to design trends and remain loyal to the BENETEAU tradition of lavish cabine twork in moulded wood.
