THE WORLD FIRST MULTIHULL ONLY BOATSHOW TO BE HELD IN LORIENT (France) FROM THE 15th TO THE 18th OF APRIL 2010

We are pleased to announce the first Atlantic edition of the multihull boatshows which will be held in Lorient, just in front of the Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly, from the 15 au 18 Avril 2010.

Pre-season, this splendid harbor will accommodate the new units exhibited by the shipyards afloat and along the quay: sailing and power catamarans and trimarans.

The OEMs, charterers, associations, sailing schools and others stakeholders in this industry, will also be present.

More than just a boatshow, it is a dynamic and animated event, which will liven up the city seafront. Over four days, visitors will be able to take part in demonstrations and sea trials aboard the shipyards’ newest or the second hand boats. They will also have the opportunity to admire former racing multihulls. The discovery space will allow multihull enthusiasts and other sailors to meet with naval architects and designers and to take part in conferences on the subject. A space with a lounge will be dedicated to Yachts catamarans builders, designers and suppliers.

For the organizers, seafarers’ solidarity is not just an empty term - for this first edition, we have chosen to support the association Friendship International, whose aim is to collect funds to help the most disadvantaged populations. With the project 500 boats for 500 families, the funds will be used to finance the building of fishing catamarans for the victims of the 2007 tsunami in Asia, as well as hospital catamarans and river ambulances.

The Atlantic boatshow will alternate every two years with a Mediterranean.
