This weekend sees the start of the Paris Boat Show, the Salon Nautique International de Paris, which takes place in the Porte de Versailles. It is a huge event, one of the largest in Europe, with hundreds of thousands of visitors expected through the doors during the week. The show offers visitors the chance to discover all of the latest news and innovations in the boating world. There is something for everyone from jet skis, kayaks and inflatables, right through to sailing boats and motor boats. There is even a 400 square metre pool for demonstrations and competitions. Being in Paris, naturally design plays a big part in the event, and each year the winners of the Nautic Design Awards are announced, awarding the finest production of motor boat designs.
This year is exciting for French Waterways as some of our partners will be exhibiting at the event, and we hope to make a flying visit ourselves. France Afloat will be in attendance and will be showing boats from Linssen and first time exhibitors Broom. Broom will be on stand 4MA10 with their Broom 430 and Linssen will be at 1A49. Linssen Yachts are known for their design and innovation so pop along and get some inspiration for your 2015 trip on the waterways.
