The weather was fine and around thirty multihulls were up for sale. The NAUTIPOLE refit area was well represented in the Exhibitors' Village. Everything fell into place to ensure the success of this latest edition.

The second-hand multihull and refit show is an event that meets the requirements of the second-hand market; the incredible development of the catamaran and trimaran construction sector justifies the existence of this event dedicated to the second-hand market, offering it a national showcase. It is now fully fledged and the site in Canet-en-Roussillon with its NAUTIPOLE refit cluster, a well-equipped area that is able to welcome muiltihulls, is obviously the perfect location.

Those working in brokerage firms were able to see that for themselves, when they came to exhibit around thirty boats measuring between 38 and 65 feet at this eighth edition. One of them told us, "There were a number of prospective contacts and we are likely to see many sales."

The multihull boat-building sector, which now launches more than 2000 boats each year, remains on course and consequently feeds the supply of second-hand boats. New classes of buyer are appearing, who probably have more limited means at their disposal, but they are equally passionate about sailing on two or three hulls.

See you in 2024!
