Beneteau Yacht Rally

Join other Beneteau enthusiasts on a hosted Mariner Boating sailing holiday in Europe this year and if you decide to purchase a new Beneteau from us, we will reimburse the cost of your holiday via a deduction from the purchase price*.

Mariner Boating Holidays are hosting several events in Europe over the next few years that use Beneteau yachts.  They include:



This is the quintessential sailing destination; it is a place we all imagine when we think of a sailing holiday. The Greek Island Odyssey Rally 2014 is hosted by Maggie and Trevor Joyce who lived in Greece for ten years and share their local knowledge with you.The rally is run in late May and early June when the fierce heat of the summer is yet to be felt and the notorious Meltemi winds are still a month away. We will travel from Athens to Irakleia and end our journey on the island of Paros. Because this is a one way journey and the yachts return taken care of, we travel at ease, take in beautiful islands and completely relax into the rhythm of the Greek culture.
Sailors, non-sailors, singles, couples or complete crews. No sailing experience necessary.

Croatia Yacht Rally – June 13 to June 29 (TBA 2015)
Cruise from  Split to Dubrovnik over 2 weeks and soak up the history, culture, gastronomy and beauty of Croatia.  To make things interesting every second day the group will race to the next port of call and follow it up with dinner, drinks and a day of leisure. Leave the guide book at home,  sail in company and explore on your own.

Croatia First Regatta – June 28 – July 6
We’ve shortened the charter time, lengthened the races and added spinnakers! If it’s competition you are after then join both professional and amateur crews as we race over 7 days from Split to Korcula through some of Croatia’s most stunning islands. Enjoy a lively social program each night, plus plenty of time to soak up the history, people, food and sites of Croatia.
