Through this weekend, 11-13 December, one  of the most famous boat shows of them all, the Salon Nautique de Paris, continues with more than 1,200 exhibitors representing 1,400 brands (including close to 300 new models). In fact, the NOUVEAUTE sign is everywhere at the show, and boat dealers from all over the world have joined thousands of show visitors to see the latest models from Frances’ most famous sailboat manufacturers – Beneteau, Jeanneau, Dufour, Archambault, Privilege, Lagoon, Nautitech, to name just a few. Some of these stands are so huge that they have their own PA systems!
