Nestled along the captivating shores of La Grande Motte, France, the International Multihull Show beckons boating enthusiasts from around the globe every April. Since its inception in 2010, this unique event has evolved into a world-renowned showcase for catamarans, trimarans, and various sailing and motor vessels. Let’s delve into the fascinating story and allure of La Grande Motte, the chosen backdrop for this extraordinary nautical extravaganza.

The Birth of the Multihull Show

The Multihull Show was born out of a visionary decision in 2010 to exclusively present in-water catamarans and trimarans. With an original concept alternating between the Atlantic and Mediterranean locations, the inaugural editions graced Lorient (56) and La Grande-Motte (34). However, responding to the desires of manufacturers and enthusiasts alike, the show has found a permanent home in La Grande-Motte, where it now takes place annually in April.

A World Reference for Multihulls

The International Multihull Show has rightfully earned its place as a world reference for the boating industry. Professionals in the field recognize this event as an invaluable platform to exhibit their latest creations. Catamarans, trimarans, sailing vessels, and motor yachts—all find a spotlight at this global event, making it a crucial fixture in the nautical calendar. Each year in April, the show attracts a diverse crowd of boating enthusiasts, uniting those passionate about the sea and everything related to it.
