MEET THE GRAN PAVOIS IN LA ROCHELLE
It was in 1973, in the midst of the oil crisis, that four pioneers from La Rochelle’s shipyards took the lead and formed the hard core of an independent professional association whose aim would be to coordinate and promote the interests of the water sports industry. They created the Grand Pavois association.
Its ambition? To create an in-water show where it would be possible to boatyard managers, discover the boats in-water and, above all, make appointments to try out boats at sea.
80,000 visitors and 800 brands are estimated.
Grand Pavois has 3 KM of piers.
600 BOATS and 300 on display.
12 thematic areas (cabotage, fishing, board sports, traditional boats, tourism, sustainable navigation, etc.
