Date of event: June 23-26, 2023
Locale: La Rochelle, France
We would like to invite you to a long weekend in La Rochelle, France, where members of The Yacht Sales Co and Multihull Solutions will be hosting a fun-filled weekend including all things French and yachting.
This exclusive event also coincides with Fountaine Pajot’s sailing range test sail days, allowing you to experience various models in the range first-hand.
With a rich maritime history and as the location of Fountaine Pajot, Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts, NEEL Trimarans and Dufour Yachts shipyards, La Rochelle is home to the best shipyards in the world.
If you are in the market for one of these brands, or have already purchased and are waiting for your new yacht, this is your opportunity to see the manufacturing process first-hand, sea trial the new models and get your first taste of what European handovers are all about.
Staged from Friday 23 June until Monday 26 June, everyone is welcome to join in the festivities. The four days will include several sea trials, factory visits, long lunches and group dinners to really enjoy this stunning city.
Register your interest below and we will be in touch closer to the time with pricing and suggested accommodation and travel arrangements.
