Nautic – the 2009 Paris Boat Show
at Porte de Versailles from 5th – 13th December

You want boats? How about 1,400 boats?!!! And lots more…
It’s one of the biggest shows of the year, spread over four pavilions at the Porte de Versailles exhibition space; 1,400 botas of which 300 are new models, 600 motorboats, 500 sailboats, 300 various other types of craft (kayaks, canoes, surfboards) and over 250,000 visitors each year. Pretty impressive…

Our favourite event this year? Cuisine à bord, (Cooking on-board) with well know chefs showing you the latest kitchen gadgets whilst making a meal, perched on a galley on a 20° slope!

And don’t miss the special Xmas area with its giant tree and selection of gift ideas, such as Gore-tex boots, the gift that everyone dreams of receiving. 😉

Nautic is also a good family event, as under-16s go free, as do students under 27 who register on the site and show up with their ID.
