Organizers said about 60 multihulls at the show were in an area given over to in-water displays.

Organizers said more than 14,000 people attended the eighth edition of the International Multihull Boat Show in La Grande Motte, France, in April, and 60 percent of the attendees came from abroad.

Windy weather for the first few days of the April 19-23 event gave way to sunshine, organizers said.

Organizers said about 60 multihulls were in an area given over to in-water displays, with additional floating pontoons set up; the quantity of boats and wide range of those on display offered the visitors a huge choice.

The presence in the exhibitors’ village of designers and naval architects in their own area enabled visitors to discover multihulls, which organizers said are increasingly spacious, comfortable and able to perform better.

Organizers said others involved in the sector — charter firms, chandleries, sailmakers, electronics firms, equipment makers and financial service providers — also turned out in force at the show.

The show will return April 18-22 next year.
