Of course, the multihull show is the opportunity to visit and even try out catamarans and trimarans, from 7 meters to over 20, but also to discover numerous new models in their first public appearance, as well as almost all the range from the biggest boatbuilders.  More and more people come to this show every year from all four corners of the world to celebrate, with us, the multihull in all its guises.

In fact, since the very first edition in 2010, this show has become one of the major events in the (minor) world of cruising catamarans and trimarans, yet has remained on a size of a human scale, knowing that first and foremost, it is about passion and having fun.

This year, the organizers are expecting sixty multihulls of all sizes and to suit all tastes.

Whether you are a fan of racing, or of dayboats, or of long distance cruising to the other side of the world in the greatest of comfort, there’s going to be the boat you’re looking for at the 2017 International Multihull Show.

Making their world première

Alibi New

The new Alibi catamaran, built in Thailand, will be on show in this new version for a world-first presentation at the International Multihull Show.  A world-first which is going to stand out, in as far as this catamaran looks exciting… 11 tonnes and ready to sail at speeds equal to or superior to that of the wind.  It’s simple, with 15 knots of wind, you’ll be doing 20 knots!

Catana 53

The latest from the Catana yard is going to be on show for the first time at La Grande Motte.  This entirely new catamaran is following in the same vein as her predecessors, with pronounced hulls, inverted bows with chamfered edges and high freeboard.  The 53 is a judicious choice for an offshore program, especially with exacting crew looking for performance.  Thanks to the extensive use of carbon fiber, the yard has achieved a good weight without having had to sacrifice volume. And there are, of course, the famous curved daggerboards offering significant lift to improve performance. 

Fountaine Pajot New 47

We’re finally going to find out the new name for the all-new catamaran from Fountaine Pajot, who, right up until ...
