The International 

The Show opened its doors for the 8th year running in La Grande Motte in France, under a beautiful southern French sky.  Over the years, this floating show has become a must-see event in the multihull sector, with nearly 17,000 visitors in 2016. 

NVequipment met with international and French customers and picked up on new trends among the boat builders, architects, designers, equipment suppliers, shipchandlers, sailmakers and all the different services and suppliers featured at the show. 


The multihull boating market represents more than 1000 units produced every year worldwide (80% sailboats, 20% powerboats), from the dayboat to the superyacht. In total, 70% of multihulls are produced in France.

The market is in full swing, especially with the boom in boat hire, regular tourists or yachtsmen favouring this boating sector, enabling unequalled freedom when it comes to boat maintenance!

The multihull’s success is rooted in its very concept since it offers living space, large volumes and incomparable luminosity, not to mention the stability the double hull provides on the water, making for easy navigation! 

NV has grasped this, and offers adapted outdoor protection for this style of sailing, for even more comfort on board.
