Pierangelo Andreani knows how to design clean lines and performance vehicles … he started his career working with supercars. He was part of the team that created the Ferrari Mondial 8, Maserati Biturbo and Guzzi Le Mans 850 motorbike.

Working independently for the last 30 years, his passion for beauty can be seen in the design of several Beneteau interiors he has created since 2005.

With each project he challenges himself to connect dreams with reality, combining the best design with perfect ergonomics. Pierangelo initially focused on powerboats, but he was challenged to create an innovative range of sport cruisers between 34 and 50 feet (Gran Turismo). Recently he has designed the lush interiors of the Swift Trawler 30, the Gran Turismo 46 and the sublime Oceanis yacht 62.

For the past forty years Jean-Marie Finot and Pascal Conq have been designing perfectly balanced and admirably seaworthy boats. They are design heavyweights – with many wins and awards under their belts.

At the Vendée Globe race, 24 of the 33 monohull yachts designed by Finot Conq that took the starting line, placed at the finish line.

Remarkably, there were four consecutive victories and two second places. With the Beneteau First and Oceanis yachts, Finot-Conq have been able to find innovative solutions for our evolving lifestyle.

Each craft excels in seakeeping, stability and safety and is even more powerful as it confronts the sea and the wind. Whether racing yachts, cruisers or large yachts, each of their creations is marked with the stamp of inventiveness and reliability. More than 40,000 boats built to their plans sail across the word today.
