Multihull boatyards have revealed some information about 2022, with the trend moving towards catamarans and trimarans that increasingly focus on performance, the technical aspects, comfort, finishings and interior design.

That's the view of the organisers of the 13th multi-hull show that gets underway in LA GRANDE MOTTE (Hérault) in the South of France in April. 

The seaside resort in Occitanie with its harbour in the centre of the town will become the “Multihull Capital” for five days when it hosts this event from April 20 to 24th. 

The line–up for 2022 looks exceptional in terms of the quantity and range of boats, and if we listen to what the builders are telling us, there is much more to come, because sailing on two or three hulls whips up a lot of enthusiasm.

Here are just a few of the premieres expected: 

  • Balance 482 / BALANCE shipyard (United-States)
  • BALI 4.4 / CATANA group (France)
  • CATANA OCEAN CLASS / CATANA group (France)
  • C-CAT 48 / C-Catamans shipyard (Italy)
  • Dragonfly 40 Ultimate / Dragonfly shipyard (Danemark)
  • Lagoon 51 / Lagoon shipyard, Beneteau group (France)
  • Libertist 853 / Libertist Yachts shipyard (Poland)
  • ORC 57 / Marsaudon Composites shipyard (France)
  • Nautitech 44 Open / Nautitech shipyard (France), BAVARIA group
  • CK67 / Squalt Marine International (Tunisia)
  • Leopard 46PC / Robertson & Caine shipyard (South Africa)
  • Windelo 54 / Windelo shipyard (France)
