Organizers of the 2017 SAP 505 World Championship are pleased to announce that Jeanneau has come aboard as an Official Partner.

Jeanneau will be providing one of its beautiful boats for spectator viewing for the 2017 SAP 505 Worlds, being held Sept. 20-29 on the Chesapeake Bay. Representatives of Title Partner SAP and other special guests will enjoy the daily competition from the comfort of a Jeanneau yacht.

“For us to have such an exciting, high-profile racing event in the same hometown as our U.S. Corporate Headquarters is fantastic.” said Nick Harvey, President of Jeanneau America/Prestige Yachts. “This year Jeanneau celebrates 60 years of boat building – so we’re thrilled to welcome VIP guests aboard one of our boats to enjoy the racing action up close.”

Jeanneau America is based on Eastern Avenue in Eastport and has become a fixture in the Annapolis maritime community. Atlantic Cruising Yachts, Chesapeake Yacht Center and Grande Yachts are just a few of the authorized dealers of Jeanneau and Prestige products in the Chesapeake Bay area.

“We are thrilled that Jeanneau will be supporting the regatta and are honored to be associated with such a prestigious company,” said Carl Smit, a member of the organizing committee for the 2017 SAP 505 World Championship. “Our honored guests will be able to view the racing in style onboard the Jeanneau VIP boat.”

With passion and respect for true maritime values, the collaboration between Jeanneau and the Garroni design team resulted in the launch of Prestige Yachts in 1989. Beauty and function are found in every detail of these yachts, where elegant lines and luxurious materials are joined together with a harmonious distribution of space and a unique contemporary style. Its success is founded on simple concepts such as living spaces one level, 360-degree panoramic views, and an independent owner’s suite. Today, over 4,000 Prestige motor yachts cruise the seven seas.
