It presented its latest boat at the La Ciotat Boat Show, and we were able to test it. Whilst a spring climate had reigned over the Mediterranean coasts for several weeks, the greyness and the low ceiling of the famous 'sea air' took pleasure in reducing the brightness of our test day. We did our best not to see in this a symbol of the surrounding economic context, but rather the image of a motor multihull market which is slow to take off. In fact, since Lagoon withdrew, and apart from Fountaine Pajot which is persevering with success, and Leopard, which more and more regularly points its South African bows in the direction of Europe and the USA, very few big production companies are involved with more exotic productions, or those closer to the super-yacht (Bamba, VG, Alu Marine...). Not forgetting Sunreef and its famous 70' of course, which, by attracting Monsieur Laurent Bourgnon himself, threw a huge pebble into the sailing catamaran pond!
