Beneteau USA reports record year.

Beneteau USA of Marion, South Carolina announced today that they broke their record for boats shipments this year. In a year when new boat sales have been pretty miserable across the board, Beneteau managed to ship more than 400 boats in sizes ranging from 32 to 49 feet.

Making this feat even more extraordinary, 5 of the models produced were new to the assembly line this year. In recognition of their workers' achievement, Beneteau paid out a special $200,000 bonus to the plant workers, averaging about $700 per worker.

Wayne Burdick, president of Beneteau USA, said in a statement,
“In spite of a very challenging North American boat market and with many unforeseen supply issues, the team at Beneteau USA pulled together to win more market share for our future and our dealers,”

Way to go, Beneteau!
